While several celebrities are getting restless staying at home during the ongoing lockdown period, popular television actress Drashti Dhami says that she is not as affected by it as she is used to staying at home. The actress, who was last seen on Colors’ hit show Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka (2018-19), has not taken up any new project in the past one year.

Dhami adds that she feels blessed to be living with her in-laws during these trying times, as she and her husband can take good care of them. However, she does miss her mother dearly. “I do not have an active social life so it is fine but, of course, we do not have the liberty to step out of the house to see friends or family. I miss meeting my mum as she lives with my brother and bhabhi (sister-in-law),” she shares.

The Madhubala (2012-14) actress is happy to see that a lot of people have started working-out in the lockdown, but she also emphasizes on being mentally fitter. “There are so many people who started working out during the lockdown as they had a lot of free time on hand. And while that is a wonderful habit, it is more important to be mentally fitter. We all need to come to terms about what is happening and the seriousness of it. Do not panic and take all precautions,” she says.

Dhami points out that once the lockdown is lifted, people might find it tough to get back to their routine, especially television actor. “TV actors will suffer a lot as after chilling at home getting back to a 12-hour shoot routine will be difficult,” she opines.
