India tennis star Sania Mirza isn’t too pleased with the rise in the number of ‘cooking posts that celebrities are putting out on social media as they stay indoors to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
The world has come to a standstill and every effort is being made to help those in need and Sania feels posting such pictures in these times is unwanted.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “Aren’t we done with posting cooking videos and food pictures yet ? Just spare a thought - there are hundreds of thousands of ppl, specially in our side of the world starving to death and struggling to find food once a day if they are lucky.”
