Coronavirus outbreak may have stopped work in Bollywood, but stars are still doing their bit to raise awareness amongst fans. A day after Deepika Padukone posted a video of washing her hands, Anushka Sharma on Wednesday took up the 'Safe Hands Challenge' and shared a video where she is seen demonstrating how to wash hands as recommended by the World Health Organisation. 

The 31-year-old actor documented the video on her Instagram stories. While sharing the routine of washing hands, the actor also made a point to save water, as amid the scare of maintaining good hygiene there are high chances of wasting water.

Earlier on Tuesday, Deepika Padukone had taken the challenge after Director-General of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, nominated her in a social media campaign.
