However, film director and choreographer Farah Khan seems to be upset with those who are showing off their workout routines at this time. She aptly schools them by mentioning that there are greater issues in the world to think about than thinking about one’s looks and physique.
“I have a humble request to all ‘celebrities’ and ‘stars’ that please stop making your workout videos and bombarding us with it. I can understand that you all are privileged, and you don’t have any other worries in this global pandemic except for looking after your figures. But some of us, most of us have bigger concerns during this crisis.”
The bigger epidemic.. work out videos!! don’t make me feel worse pls! pic.twitter.com/NYs4tFwm3a— Farah Khan (@TheFarahKhan) March 26, 2020
While Farah wanted to raise a concern for unprivileged here, the netizens seemed not-sohappy with her message. Twitterati are pointing out the “unnecessary” advice and telling her to let people do whatever they want.

Sorry but this is lame.— Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj (@DeepikaBhardwaj) March 26, 2020
1. Making a video because everyone's making it is stupid.
2. What people do in their free time should be none of your business
3. You could unfollow them without announcing. We all have discretion on what to watch.
4. Please work out.
A person also shared the World Health Organization (WHO)’s guidelines where it asked people to stay healthy by exercising at homes.

WHO also encourages to stay fit and healthy in the time of this pandemic ,
So what's so wrong with the videos posted by celebs to promote fitness? pic.twitter.com/i3c9ladsdX
A few also came in her support and clarified that she didn’t ask anyone to stop exercising., but only requested them to stop posting it online.
Being a comman man; it irritates us and feel us down that wish.... I was also damn rich to show house interior like celebrities...!!— Sunil Chouhan (@sunilc65) March 26, 2020
Mam, I totally agree that this is not the time for celebs to kill their free time by making excercise videos, they don’t speak for most of the population, but we need to accept that there’s no harm in boosting physical fitness. Exer releases harmones that can keep us happy...1/2— LadyBird (@YourFriend_Bita) March 26, 2020
