Some also pointed out some previous tweets posted by the actor apart from the video that also raised concerns:
Perhaps in these tense times, celebrities should be careful with their opinions, if they're not helpful. In the video, he is also seen hoping some sections of people contract Coronavirus. The Mumbai Police or Twitter hasn't reacted to these tweets from users and no action has been taken so far.
