A Twitter user asked Telangana minister for municipal administration and urban development KT Rama Rao (KTR) as to whether barber shops, saloons will open after April 20. He added that he was not willing to get a haircut from his wife as it could make him stay indoors even after the lockdown is lifted!

“@KTRTRS Sir a sincere query: Any thoughts on opening barber shops or salons post 20 Apr? My wife is eager to try her hand on haircut and if that happens I have a strong feeling I'll need to stay home even after the lockdown is lifted! (Flushed face emoji) (sic),” a Twitter user named Sharath Chandra wrote to KTR.

The minister replied to him on Thursday (April 16), by saying Kohli had got a haircut from his wife Anushka Sharma and he too should do the same. “Hey, when Virat Kohli could let his wife style his hair, why don’t you (Grinning face emoji) (sic).”

This response from KTR was a big hit with netizens. However, there are other users who asked what about bachelors. There were many fun tweets in reply to KTR’s comment.

We allow things like this to happen. Getting a haircut with kitchen scissors! Can you see this gradual fade? Beautiful haircut by my wife.”
