What looked like a joke from actor and writer Vasay Chaudhry might not be a laughing matter anymore. Two of his pals Humayun Saeed and Adnan Siddiqui are going into self-quarantine mode after returning from their tour to America.
It all started when the Jawani Phir Nahi Ani actor Vasay Chaudhary tweeted out that he’s not going anywhere, not even London, which is a reference to ‘London Nahi Jangi‘. This tweet was made yesterday.
@iamhumayunsaeed London kiya…Kaheein Bhi Nahe Jaoonga .

In response, Humayun Saeed revealed that he can’t even go home right now. Both the Punjab Nahi Jaungi actor and Adnan Siddiqui are going into self-quarantine after landing at Karachi airport today.
In other countries, people flying in from abroad are placed under a compulsory 14 days quarantine. There are designated safe zones in the airport to screen for COVID-19.
According to various reports, since Pakistani officials aren’t doing so, both Humayun Saeed and Adnan Siddiqui acted responsibly of their own accord.
Just landed at karachi Airport bhai …Magar abhi ghar nahin jaonga …Main aur Adnan Sidiki khud ko aik room main bund kar rahe hain kuch din ke liye …Allah hum sab ko apni amaan main rakhe…God bless u all

Of course, many netizens are lauding their move to prevent the spread of Corona.
Stay safe both of you

Simultaneously, some people are cracking jokes about something that is no joking matter. There was a bombardment of Meray Paas Tum Ho references.
Please make clear due to fear of Corona you locked your self…… you know Pakistani media kuch bhe…. yani kuch bhe.
Love you guys keep at least one to two meters distance 😂

To make it clear, right now none of the two Meray Paas Tum Ho actors have tested positive for Coronavirus. It is also unknown when they will get tested.
But we have to give them credit here. At a time when people have to be arrested to deter wedding gatherings amid the pandemic, what these two did is remarkable.
It is praiseworthy that they acted so responsibly despite not knowing if they are COVID-19 positive. We hope that people take this situation seriously now and practice social distancing.
