Police in the Indian state of Nagpur have recently revealed that they have set up an open theatre at a shelter home to help those battling anxiety amid coronavirus pandemic.

The first film they screened was Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior.

Their official Twitter handle has posted a video of the open theatre set up where the scene from Ajay Devgn and Kajol's Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior was being played on the screen.

The shelter home people were seen wearing masks.

Nagpur Police says watching a film redirects attention and it's an excellent way to decrease anxiety.

Devgn responded to the tweet with folded hands emoji and said that he was humbled by it.

He says that if he or his films can help in any way, it makes him happy.

Devgn has been urging the citizens to practice social distancing while staying at home.

He has also donated to the organisation, FWICE to help daily wage workers impacted during the lockdown.
