Veteran actor Shakti Kapoor recently revealed that he has received his COVID-19 booster shot, an additional dose of a vaccine given after the original shot. Taking to his Instagram Stories, the 69-year-old actor shared a video of himself getting the booster dose. He also added the song ‘Love You Zindagi’ from Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Dear Zindagi’ in the background. The actor later shared videos of him jamming on ‘Chand Chhupa Badal Mein’ on guitar, while sitting with his friends.
For the unversed, Kapoor has become the latest celebrity to receive the COVID-19 booster shot. Earlier, veteran actor Dharmendra also received the jab. Taking to his Twitter handle, the 86-year-old actor shared a video of himself getting the booster dose, saying “Booster le raha hun, booster. Dard bhi nahi hua kuchh.” Sharing the video, Dharmendra also urged his fans to get vaccinated. “Friends, humble request please take the booster dose,” he tweeted alongside the video.
A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine helps improve the protection people have from their first two doses of the vaccination. Health and frontline workers and people above 60 years old with comorbidities are currently eligible to take the jab. The drive began as the whole world battles a spike in COVID-19 cases fuelled by the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Shakti Kapoor is known for his villainous and comic roles, having featured in more than 700 films throughout his career.
