Many wondered how he was able to shoot the movie Coronavirus. Responding to them, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, "For all the people wondering how we made a film on the LOCKDOWN during LOCKDOWN the answer is a quote of Ayn Rand " THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN STOP YOU, IS YOU " ...CORONAVIRUS film TRAILER releasing today at 5 PM @shreyaset."

With no jobs in hand, many celebs went busy with spreading awareness about the coronavirus scare among their fans. This is when Sandeep Reddy Vanga started a new initiative called #BetheRealMan as per which one has to share the workload of his wife or mother, shoot video of them performing household chores, share it on Twitter and challenge their friends to do the same.

SS Rajamouli, Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu, Jr NTR and many leading Telugu celebs took part in the #BetheRealMan challenge. Ram Gopal Varma mocked those celebrities, as he tweeted, "When the rest of the film people were SWEEPING FLOORS, COOKING FOOD, WASHING UTENSILS, DRYING CLOTHES etc I MADE A FILM #CORONAVIRUSFILM."
