Aayush Sharma is cur­rently sta­tioned in Ar­pita Farms in Pan­vel along with his fam­ily and in-laws, in­clud­ing Sal­man Khan. Away from the hus­tle, he’s happy to be spend­ing some “fruit­ful” time with his chil­dren, Ahil and Ayat. “This year, Ahil, 4, was sup­posed to start his proper school­ing but due to the pan­demic, it’s not hap­pen­ing. I’m tak­ing this time to teach him what­ever I can. It’s a good way of bond­ing with him,” he says, adding, “With Ayat, it’s all about try­ing to make her laugh. She’s four months old, and I spend a lot of time try­ing to get her at­ten­tion.” Sharma says that he’s be­ing able to en­joy Mother Na­ture up, close and per­sonal now. “Around the farm­house, there are leop­ards and eight kinds of snakes. Due to the hot cli­mate, the an­i­mals come to the lake which is next to the prop­erty. It’s quite in­ter­est­ing be­cause I love wildlife,” he says. The ac­tor adds he has taken to pho­tog­ra­phy, too. “For years, I wanted to do a pho­tog­ra­phy course. Now, I’m get­ting to do so,” he says.

So what has been his big­gest learn­ing from this health cri­sis? “Once in a while, it’s good to stop and re­boot. It’s mak­ing me re­alise that in life, we are de­pen­dent on peo­ple for so many things. For me, things will be dif­fer­ent post the lock­down. I have learned self-re­liance and I’m en­joy­ing it,” he signs off.
