After his vaccination, he took to Twitter thanking the medical team for their service. He also urged everyone to take vaccines. He Said "I took the second dose of Covid 19 vaccination this morning. Many thanks to Doctor Lahane and her medical team as well as Shraddha More, the nurse who skillfully gave both doses."
