‘STAYING HOME IS THE PRICE WE’VE TO PAY’
As working from home becomes the ‘new normal’ for most people across industries, even actors are keeping up with the times, and trying their best to ensure that at least a bit of the behind-thescenes work goes on. Actor Anil Kapoor, last seen on screen in Mohit Suri’s Malang, has also made a work station of sorts at his home.
“Staying at home is the price we have to pay to overcome the pandemic. I’m researching for my upcoming projects and my meetings are happening over video calls. I’m working virtually for now,” he tells us. We’ve also learnt that Kapoor has become quite tech-savvy, and he is also reading scripts at home. Amid all this, the 63-year-old does not forget to work out and is trying to stick to his strict fitness regime.
“Exercising is key to mental and physical health, so I encourage everyone to do it for half an hour. I work out indoors almost twice everyday and I watch my diet and plan my meals,” says the actor, whose social media feed is full of inspiring workout posts. In fact, in a recent Instagram post, Kapoor had made a pertinent point when he wrote, “The longterm solution to fighting microbes like Covid-19 is not complete isolation or endless disinfecting, but building immunity of the body and mind
(sic).” For a little recreation, Kapoor also indulges in a game or two of carrom with his wife Sunita and daughter Rhea. And he says, “Those who have the privilege of staying safe at home should dedicate their time to upskilling themselves and helping those in need.”
The actor celebrated his 36th wedding anniversary on May 19, and treated fans to his heartmelting “wedding story”. He also gorged on “cakes”, but being a fitness conscious person, he exercised the calories away.
