Bollywood actor Vir Das filmed a video where a man is sneezing on him and threatening him for not wearing a mask. In the video, you can see how an old man comes and rigorously shouts at the Hasmuskh star for violating the rules.
He constantly threatens and bullies him and at one point even sneezes on him. The shameful act was captured by the actor and was posted on his Twitter handle.
The man claims to be the owner of the house in which Vir Das lives. He also says that his dead parents would come and haunt him in the night for abiding the safety rules.
Giving the details about the incident Vir Das wrote:
“This is one crazy evening. I live on the ground floor. We’ve got a little sit out. At 10 pm, a neighbour came by, because we had cooked dinner for them too. We do that with them and also some of the others within the complex. We gave him a chair fifteen feet away, FULLY socially distanced. My neighbour had a can of coke from his house, a mask on, which he had pulled down to have a smoke. I was on the outdoor sit-out area of my house, neighbour was in the complex, fully socially distanced. Five minutes later, this happens.
“This man is not my landlord, he lives on the first floor of the annexe building. He is upset because my landlord inherited the house I live in and he didn’t. This man does not own my doorstep, my sit-out, or my house. I’m not sure if an old man threatening to assault me, or sneezing on me, or asking his dead parent to haunt me qualifies as harassment. But this is a little ridiculous. And before this turns into him going to the media, as he has done before, and I’ve sat through it quietly…I’m not normally one for drama I’m sorry but this crossed the line. How’s your lockdown going?”
Vir captioned the video:
Lockdown Neighbour. I was giving my friend Kavi who lives three houses down from me some dinner. We were waiting for it to get cooked 15 feet away from each-other. Me on my doorstep, him out. This happened.
