#StayHomeStaySafe: This is how TV actors are kept busy during the blockade
Being confined to the four walls of your home for days is not easy. However, staying home does not mean being inactive. We spoke to some of your favorite television actors about how they spend their time productively and positively during the national closing period. This is what they had to say:
Dev Joshi, who plays the lead role in ‘ Baalveer Returns , Share: This has been a welcome break for me. While I enjoy my job, it is also very necessary to spend time with the family. I start my day with yoga, which refreshes my mind, followed by a hearty breakfast. I am also catching up on all the movies, which I have wanted to see for a long time, along with reading books on politics, as I am a political science student and have a keen interest in the subject. My family and I enjoy playing board games, so every night we spend quality time together in Suburbia or Baalveer (board games). ”
The young actor also shares a sweet message for fans of his show. He says: Our country is going through a difficult time, but I am sure that we can overcome this obstacle by staying positive and taking all necessary precautions.
Gulki Joshi, who plays Haseena Mallik in ‘ Maddam sir 'He has been busy tidying up his house. She says: “Now that I have plenty of time, I am cleaning my house. My domestic service is licensed and I have taken care of everything, from cooking to washing utensils and clothes. Other than that, I've been doing a lot of hair care by greasing my hair regularly and applying homemade masks. I am also reading books that I had previously purchased, but could not read due to my busy schedule. I am enjoying some movies that I missed and I am also planning to follow some online courses.
Stressing the importance of exercising while at home, Gulki says: “We need to take advantage of this time to rest, but it is equally important to keep our bodies fit and active. Although cleaning the house is an exercise in itself, I have also been practicing yoga and some other workouts. ”
Wishing the safety of his fans, Gulki shares: “This block is the need of the hour. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the doctors and essential service providers who have worked selflessly for our safety. I ask everyone to stay inside to protect themselves and the people around them. ”
Talking about his routine, Gulki’s co-actor, Gaurav Wadhwa, who plays Sunny in ‘ Maddam sir ’, says, “I am finally spending some quality time with my pets. I have two dogs and a cat at home. I used to feed the dogs in my neighbourhood and I continue to do that after taking all the precautions advised by the government and adhering to all safety measures. After only a week of staying at home, I realised that I have completed almost every task that had been put on hold for weeks.”
And he adds: “I used to go to the gym every day, but now, I have improvised my exercise routine. Since lifting weights, I switched to cardio, which has been a welcome change for me as an exercise enthusiast. On the other hand, I am glad that I got more involved with my followers on Instagram by starting up often, learning about their experiences and sharing mine. ”
Gaurav also has a message for the audience of his show. He says: This is the time to spread positivity and happiness. We should do everything in our power to help people and animals in need. I hope we all get out of this test soon, but until then, we thank all the people who work day and night to guarantee our well-being. Take out those old books you couldn't read or watch the movies you love.
Aamir Dalvi, who plays Zafar in ‘ Aladdin - Naam Toh Suna Hoga, in fact, is enjoying his yo-time. He shares: Usually I don't get out of my house or socialize much. So being at home is not a problem for me. Also, now that I have a lot of free time, I'm sleeping late. The first thing I do when I wake up is watch the news, although it's a bit annoying. This is followed by lunch and an afternoon nap.
However, the actor is extremely particular about exercise. He says, “The only thing I never skip is my training, which I usually do in the afternoon. My day ends with dinner, followed by some reading and studying.
Speaking about how he stays positive in such stressful times, Aamir shares: “I think this will also happen and we will all get through it. When you can already see the light at the end of the tunnel, there is no stress. I just hope everyone is positive, safe and healthy.
