#LifeInTheLockdown: Now that I'm home, my baby has started to recognize me: Kapil Sharma
At a time when the country practices social distancing to keep COVID-19 at bay, celebrities make the most of their free time by pursuing their hobbies and spending quality time with their family. A case in point is the comedian ace Kapil Sharma , who enjoys every minute of this phase of staying at home with her three-month-old daughter, Anayra . He shares: “Aaj kal saara din baby ke saath khelta rehta hoon, and khaata aur sota hoon, bas. Badi mushkil is routine sahi hui thi. Usko is established aur hamein time par sote hue 10 din hi hue the ki phir se routine change ho gaya. Abhi baby bhi bored ho gayi hai dekh dekh ke mujhe saara din. Usko lagta hai, Mera baap kuchh karta hello nahi hai (laughs).
Kapil has mostly been at home ever since his bundle of joy arrived. “In a way, I have been in a lockdown state since December 10, the day Anayra was born. I would step out only for two days a week to shoot for the show, ”he says.
The comedian, who has barely spoken to the media about his daughter so far, tells us that he can't keep his eyes off his baby. He says, “I don't even realize when the day goes by. Abhi uska mere saath thoda zyada attachment ho gaya hai. Pehle Ginni (wife) ko hi dekh kar hasti thi. Since the past few days, she has started recognizing me and even smiles. That feeling is out of the world. She totally justifies her name - Anayra, which means happiness. She smiles like my mother and me. Hum teeno ki aankhein band ho jaati hain until time. Khoobsurat apni mummy jaisi hai woh, and thank God for that (laughs!). ”
This phase has also led to much introspection and realization. Kapil shares: “We take many things for granted. The blockade has made us realize the value of the people who work for us tirelessly. I also noticed that my mother began to behave like a girl, now that she has crossed a certain age. Jaise gajak (sweet) aayi thi Punjab se toh mummy ne bahut sari gajak dabbe mein daal kar apne room mein rakh lee. When I asked for it, they told me it was not in the kitchen and that I had to ask my mother.
And he adds: 14 years have passed since I moved to Mumbai, but it is for the first time maine koyal ki awaaz suni aur sparrows dekhe; something I would see in my hometown, Amritsar. It seems that nature is in detox mode. With that said, I want to get back to normal in our lives. Sadkon for raunak rahe toh achha lagta hai. Kisko achha lagta hai soonsaan pada hua hai sheher saara.
