With the lingering risk of Corona virus over
our heads, there isn’t much that people are doing with respect to the time that they earlier used to spend outdoors. With the strict restrictions imposed by the government, everyone, including our famous B-town celebs are forced to stay indoors for the better. So when it comes to making peace with the never ending boredom that seems to go nowhere, our all-time busy actors and celebrities have turned up to pursuing their hobbies that they earlier didn’t get much time for.
One such actress, Sonakshi Sinha, who while expressing her frame of mind regarding the same in an interview with Indo-Asian News Service, told how fortunate she feels to be at home with her loved ones during the pandemic, and says that the crisis has made everyone realise not to take things for granted.
Asked about the most challenging thing she had to do during the lockdown, the ‘Dabang’ actress said: “Nothing. I am fortunate to be at home with my loved ones. When you look around and see people who are away from their homes, families, not being able to feed themselves…those are the challenges. My heart goes out to them and all I want to do is help.”
Though the lockdown is keeping Sonakshi away from her acting and shooting work, it is giving her a chance to reconnect with art. Talking about the same, the star informed of how she has decided to auction her art for a good cause. “I reconnected with my art during the lockdown and have been wanting to help out on a bigger scale… so I put two and two together and decided to raise funds with my art,” she said.
The artwork which includes digital prints, sketches and large canvas paintings made by the actress herself will be used to raise a fund to provide ration kits to daily wage workers. While expressing her views on how helping the frontline workers amid the virus outbreak is the “need of the hour”, Sonakshi said, “Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would ever be in a situation like this… and I feel that if we have a roof over our heads, food on our plates and are able to keep ourselves safe, we are privileged. And being so, it’s our duty to take care of those who aren’t as fortunate as us.”
