The self-isolation interval in the course of the coronavirus outbreak has given many actors an opportunity to attach with their hobbies and pursuits, and Aparshakti Khurana is taking advantage of it. Besides music, which he calls his “lifelong passion”, he has taken to writing poems once more, and even penned an unique piece for HT readers on the present scenario.
Talking in regards to the poem titled Sawaal, he says, “When you’re spending time with yourself, many questions pop up. These are my questions. Where are we all headed? We were wasting time on frivolous materialistic things. And we didn’t give respect to our mothers, as well as Mother Earth! I think it has to come back to us. We’re now getting to spend time with our families. I’m sure we’ll start taking care of everything in an appropriate way, when we come out of it.”
The 32-year-old is in Mumbai at present, and through the previous couple of days, he has been calling up all his associates. “Be it [friends] from school or college, relatives, my parents or in-laws… I’ve been talking to them. In the rat race, we miss out on time with our loved ones. This is how I’m making the most of it,” he says.
Professional commitments have been affected, for positive, Khurana says, however provides, “It’s all for our safety. What really made me happy recently was the Instagram antakshari, which I started with my friend, singer Jonita Gandhi. That was a very warm moment, the fraternity coming together as a family.”
