Many celebrities, politicians, and athletes contracted the coronavirus last year, but we are now seeing some begin the process to immunity.

Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan’s parents, veteran filmmaker Rakesh Roshan and Pinkie Roshan got their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The director shared a photo on his official Instagram of him receiving the vaccine, making him one of the first Bollywood celebrities to do so. In the picture that Rakesh shared, he can be seen giving a thumbs up to the camera as he gets the coronavirus vaccine shot. He wrote, “Unique day once in our lifetime 4321, 4th March, 21, to get vaccinated… Go ahead."

Meanwhile, tabla maestro Zakir Hussain, who resides in the USA with his family, also took to social media to share that he had successfully completed the vaccination process.
