"Individual gain or loss is not my concern.”
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has candidly spoken about the impact of the Coronavirus as she refers to it as a “potential bio war.”
Undeniably, the Coronavirus has wreaked havoc across the world and has forced countries to go on lockdown.
Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi issued a nationwide lockdown for a period of 21 days.
During the lockdown, Kangana is residing in her hometown Manali and gave her view of the current situation.
Due to the Coronavirus, the Indian film industry has come to a standstill. Kangana was asked how the film industry is helping battle the Coronavirus. She said:
“We all are doing our bit and also donating for this. Our huge concern for the economy has landed us all in the situation where we are with no concern for human well being and this could also be a potential bio war where countries are trying to get down each other’s economies.
“We have to reflect as to where we have landed as people, as a nation and why are we letting our greed, our senses guide us and not our consciousness.”
Kangana continued to mention the detrimental effect the lockdown will have on the developing economy. She said:
“If this lockdown goes on for 21 days we will be two years behind economically but if it goes beyond 21 days it is going to be a disastrous situation for our nation because we are developing one.”
Kangana was further asked about how the delay of her upcoming films has impacted her. She explained:
“Right now we only exist as people here. I’ve stopped to see myself as an actor and like I said we should be ready for almost anything, we should be prepared to rise above individual concerns.”
Kangana further added that everything is dependant on when the Coronavirus matter is resolved. She said:
“So my films are like everything else it’s just stuck and I don’t know where we will land it depends on when we come out of it.”
“That is the reason I want more people to understand the seriousness of the situation. Right now, individual gain or loss is not my concern.”
Unfortunately, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic life as we know, has come to a standstill. Daily life has ceased to exist as people must stay at home to save lives.
We hope matters are resolved as soon as possible.
