Kartik Aaryan’s First Episode Of ‘Koki Poochega’ For Coronavirus Survivors Wins Internet
The first episode was dropped online on April 11 where Kartik interacted with Sumiti Singh, one of India’s first coronavirus survivors from Gujarat
Youth icon and heartthrob of the nation, Kartik Aaryan has started a series of his own in which he will be seen interacting with the COVID-19 survivors and fighters. The first guest of his show was Sumiti Singh, one of India’s first coronavirus survivors from Gujarat.
The series is named as Koki Poochega, his nickname that his fans fondly call him on social media. Aaryan will be interviewing real-life heroes of COVID-19- doctors, policemen, social workers and people who have fought and survived the fatal virus. After reminding everyone, the importance of self-isolation through his monologue and rap, the actor now feels to speak to the survivors and bust some myths about the global pandemic.
Speaking about this new series, the actor says, “Ever since the outbreak of COVID-19, there is too much misinformation about the virus, masses are still confused about the dos’ and don’ts’ during these critical times. I really thought there needs to be clarity and speak to the people who have fought the virus. And it’s not just about putting forward questions about Coronavirus, it’s also for people to learn and understand how to kick out this virus – Not to panic, how to stay calm and how to strongly face these times. While the doctors, policemen and everyone serving our country are working day and night for us, as an actor I thought, this is the smallest thing I can do through this large medium. My show is nothing but to speak to every Indian, reach out to every household nationwide through these interviewees about safety and what are the right precautions at these times.”
The first episode of Koki Poochega is dropped on YouTube. Kartik is having an interaction with Sumiti who reveals that she had returned to India after visiting the Northern Lights. She is seen talking about all the precautionary measures she had taken and was under self-isolation for 14 days and still, she got infected.
