“I realised I was getting a little cranky 10 days back and snapping at people around me,”
How are you coping with the lockdown?
When the lockdown started, I was calm initially.
I was at peace being at home because firstly, I was with my family after a very long time and I had finished a long schedule of my film, Mimi.
I had been away from home in Mandwa, and it was good to have that break and be home for a change.
I spent the time relaxing, resting and having some good family time.
When did the lockdown start getting to you?
I think in the last 10 days or so.
I realised I was getting very restless.
We have all been home, haven’t stepped out at all, so not working for so long is something I have not done in a while.
So I was very, very restless.
There were some Zoom meetings happening, but I think it’s the uncertainty of this situation that makes us very restless.
I realised I was getting a little cranky 10 days back and snapping at people around me.
I didn’t want to take calls and I was sort of missing work, missing people...
I think the fact that there’s nothing to look forward to, there’s no future you can see...
Usually, we wake up knowing what we’re going to do for the next four-five days at least.
If there’s some film coming up, you’re prepping for it, doing workshops, you have a schedule.
But because we don’t have a schedule anymore, I think it’s normal for us to get a little restless because there’s so much uncertainty.
What is your antidote to the restlessness?
I’m trying to channelise my energy and get into a routine.
