I have no idea Dr Vidhi. If such a person is truly deceased because of Corona, my departed soul Pranaams. But the person in the photo is me. Therefore, please avoid forwarding messages with my photo and also let your source know where the message is forwarded from. Thanks in advance, sincerely, #Samskruthy, ”the actor wrote.
