Neha Dhupia On Lockdown, Coronavirus And More
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|April 2020
The only way to get past the quarantine is to stay calm & stay positive

We are facing one of the biggest problems ever. The Coronavirus pandemic has got the entire country on a standstill. Bollywood has also been majorly affected too. Shootings, events have been cancelled and all your favourite stars are at home too, just like you. We caught up with the feisty and fearless Neha Dhupia for a small chat on the current situation and the multi-faceted woman, while being super concerned about the pandemic and it’s effects, is spending happy quality time with her husband and actor Angad Bedi and their bundle of joy, Mehr. Read on to know more about the life in the quarantine time at the Bedi-Dhupia household...

What is the first thing you plan to do once the lockdown is over?

Just focus on the simple pleasures in life. Take my daughter to the park or maybe just a swim, we are craving for park time and pool time. We hope this ends soon but I hope it ends at the right time. Even if it means we need to stay in for more time for everyone to stay safe, I’m up for it.

What’s your favourite pastime while you’re at home?

Favourite past-time is to do things together for Meher as parents and watch shows when she is asleep or just catch up on reading or like you know check what’s going on online and discuss about it and spend little bit of time in the kitchen because I’m trying to work on my skill sets there, because it’s a little bit weak.

If you had to give the name of three dishes that can be cooked quickly during the lockdown, what would they be?

Gluten-free pancakes, gluten-free cookies, beet yogurt and a little cooking for my daughter. That goes without saying.
