MUMBAI: As several people came together to light diyas and lamps to signify unity as per PM Modi's #9pm9minutes initiative, there were a few who utilised the moment to burst firecrackers during this period. This didn't go down too well with Bollywood.

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta posted about the happenings around him on his account where he wrote,
My neighbours lit diyas, candles and then chanted Go Corona Go, idhar se nikal aur kabhi waapas mat aana. Then they kicked a pot which cracked. Then they clapped in unison. Then crackers were burst elsewhere. I was writing.— Hansal Mehta (@mehtahansal) April 5, 2020
