The upside to the coronavirus pandemic is that everyone is getting to spend quality time with their families, catching up with old friends and indulging in their hobbies and interests. While working round-the-clock can get daunting, this is the time to unwind, reflect and remain optimistic. Actor Kunal Kemmu is one Bollywood star who is always on the go. However, he too feels that the lock down in India amid the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in him spending “much-needed family time” since his work commitments have been suspended for now. “These are just the early days of self-isolation for me. Shooting for my web show Abhay has stopped from March 18,” he told Hindustan Times.

“We were supposed to travel for it, but now the whole schedule is on pause. Nonetheless, there is not much that one can do. We need to make the most of the time we have. I’m catching up on films and spending more time with my daughter Inaaya. In fact, I have also hung out with the kids of our building in the past two days, who are otherwise holed up inside,” Kunal added.
“I am a part of a couple of biking groups. However, now, when someone says, ‘Should we head out?’ others ponder if it is a responsible thing to do, even if we wear a helmet. These are the early days of the pandemic. We are still trying to figure out what this virus is. The biggest obstacle is that not enough tests are being done, and they are not easily accessible. So for people who feel that they have the symptoms, they have to quarantine themselves.” Kunal also mentioned that they have been painting together at home and doing other fun things. “Sometimes, our neighbours’ kids come over, and at times, Inaaya goes to their place. She hasn’t brought up the topic as to why aren’t we going to the park. She’s too young to understand. We have been able to distract her till now, I just hope it doesn’t become a long haul,” he concluded.
