The last one-and-ahalf year hasn’t been easy for anyone, including those from the film industry, as shoots were stalled and cinemas remained shut. Actor Kriti Sanon, who battled Covid-19 late last year, acknowledg­es the challenges she had to deal with.

“Last year has been the worst year of my life and probably of many people’s lives due to multiple reasons. I feel fortunate that I could be with my family in those tough times at home with food on my table, which many were unfortunat­ely struggling for,” she says.

Pointing at the many learnings and realisatio­ns that everyone had during this tough phase, the 30-year-old shares, “It’s been speculativ­e, full of learnings... it’s made me realise how important it is to stop running so fast and just spend time with your family and be around people who you love. It was a tough year but what breaks you, also makes you stronger.”

But the actor is somewhat happy that she shot for multiple projects — Hum Do

Actorhost Mandira Bedi, who lost her husband, filmmaker Raj Kaushal on June 30, carried the bier to bid him goodbye. Along with condolence­s, many lauded her for breaking the gender stereotype

at the funeral.

Hamaare Do, Bhediya and Bachchan Pandey — amid the pandemic.

“I feel lucky that I was still able to work and finish a few films in the pandemic time, which was really tough. But, the production houses, directors, producers made it possible by taking a lot of safety measures,” the actor says.

Sanon completed Hum Do Hamaare Do towards the end of 2020 and got Covid-19 after that which was a scare. “But, I feel blessed that I went through it calmly without any complicati­ons. I’m glad I came out stronger and didn’t have any post-covid issues,” she adds.

She’s looking forward to getting back in groove as things are slowly falling in place. However, the actor adds that return to complete normalcy will take time. “The schedules have been affected, people will have to reschedule, there will be date clashes and chaos. But, work is something that is going to sort itself out. People will figure out a way, help each other and make sure that no film suffers,” Sanon concludes.
