Kartik Aaryan is a popular actor with the young generation. Apart from his looks, the actor is liked for his work too. People had appreciated his two long monologues in Pyar Ka Punchnama and its sequel, Pyar Ka Punchnama 2. Hence, when Aaryan decided to use the appreciation for those monologues to make one on Covid-19, people immediately hailed him for being concerned and using his strength to deliver a social and health message in his own inimitable style.

In a video of just over two minute, Aaryan addresses the youth and asks them to maintain social distancing and not treat it as an overreaction. He uses what the youth are doing (like going out for ice cream with their lovers) despite warnings all over the world to tell them that they can postpone it for a few weeks, because as he says "zinda rahoge toh pyaar karoge na".

While his monologues in the two films were hilarious, this one is full of angst. People are talking about how he does not sermonize but lets the youth feel he is one of them and addresses them in the language they understand. People say the beauty of the message is that he uses the plural hum and includes himself in the message instead of using tum or putting the full onus on the audience. People say the video has gone viral because youngsters identify with Aaryan. People say that Aaryan has done a signal social service with this monologue and his fan following will increase as the act is being appreciated across the country.
