Priyadarshan calls Shailaja Teacher as the Florence Nightingale of Kerala!
Kerala government is doing incredibly well in containing the spread of the deadly Corona virus. Though the state has one of the highest number of infected patients in the country, the numbers have come down drastically thanks to the excellent work by the Pinarayi Vijayn-led government, particularly the health department.
Veteran Malayalam filmmaker Priyadarshan has showered praise on Kerala’s Health Minister KK Shailaja Teacher for spearheading the fight against Corona. He even called her the state’s Florence Nightingale and an inspiration to many. Sharing a photo of the Minister in his social media handle, Priyadarshan has written,
The Florence Nightingale of Kerala ! – Smt. K K Shailaja Teacher, An inspiration to many.
Your attempt to save our citizens are highly appreciable.
Meanwhile, Malayalam film lovers across the world are still waiting for the release of Priyadarshan’s dream project ‘Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham’. The mega budget film starring Mohanlal and a host of other stars was originally supposed to hit screens on March 26 but it had to be postponed due to the virus outbreak. New release date is expected to be announced only after the current crisis is over.
