Just like the rest of us, celebrities are also praying for the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic to end as soon as possible so that everyone can go back to their previous schedule and resume work.
Popular television actor Arjun Bijlani says, “While the lockdown is keeping us at home, the main issue for us all is COVID-19. I am sure people, including me, are thinking when will it disappear and when will we get a vaccine. And till we get answers, we cannot lift the lockdown. It is a catch-22 situation and a lot of uncertainty.”
The actor, who is a workaholic, is dying to get back to work. Talking about the shooting scenario in films and television post lockdown, the actor says, “I feel post lockdown the entertainment industry will start working in small units. Fiction shows will start first because they have smaller units as compared to reality shows. Once the government and the industry bodies decide on the guidelines, can the shooting start. The content will be different because the unit will be smaller and many things will be done digitally. Everything will have to be monitored. Another issue might be how many actors will be willing to work on a set.”
The actor has excellent advice for all those who are depressed about the whole situation. “We are all in this crisis, so please save your life in 2020 and we will all be able to work in 2021. Don’t be restless. Be sensible. You have to keep holding yourself because jaan hai toh jahaan hai. I have taken to this new normal in a positive way and hoping that it will get over soon,” adds the actor.
Arjun Bijlani can be currently seen in the much talked-about webseries Stage of Siege: 26/11 on ZEE5.
