“I just post about my quarantine life."
Actress Pooja Hegde has revealed that she is not ‘preaching’ during the lockdown because a lot of that is “out there already.”
Currently, India is on nationwide lockdown till May 3, 2020. Life as we know it has come to a standstill.
For the Indian film industry, productions have been put on pause. Without a doubt, this is a difficult time.
Pooja has revealed how she is coping with the current pandemic situation. She said:
“I was very positive in the beginning and just enjoying the fact that I was at home. Now, it’s slowly starting to build up.
“I’m a workaholic, you spend so much time travelling and working, you begin to miss it.
“The way I’m dealing with it is taking it one day at a time and not thinking when this will end.”
Pooja began 2020, on a positive note with the success of her Telugu film, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
The 29-year-old actress was also roped in to star in Salman Khan’s film, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali (KEKD).
Unfortunately, due to the deadly virus and the nationwide lockdown, the schedule for the shooting of the film has been halted. Pooja said:
“I have two more big news coming up but they’ve been paused because of the situation.
“I’m waiting for the announcement. Now that Ala (2020) is on a streaming platform with subtitles, it’s reaching out to a lot more people.
“KEKD, of course, is going to be my first Hindi massive film. I personally know how many people wanted to do it, I am happy I was chosen.
“I am thrilled and excited for work to start again.”
Pooja Hegde further added:
“All films are on hold, not just mine. It’s not like main kaam nahi kar rahi hoon aur baai kar rahe hain, we are all in the same boat.
“That anxiety is not there, otherwise I can be a very anxious person. I have a film with Akhil Akkieneni, Most Eligible Bachelor, which has been stalled.
“There were a couple of narrations also set to happen but they haven’t yet.”
During the lockdown, many Bollywood celebrities have been regularly posting fitness videos on social media.
Pooja explains why she has refrained from doing the same, she said:
“I don’t think I’m an expert on fitness, so I don’t want to just post something or do any live session because I don’t know if I am qualified enough.
“There are enough workout videos out there, which is why I haven’t put up any.”
Instead, of posting workout videos, Pooja has been sharing what she has been doing with her large fan following. She said:
“I post what I am doing like I did yoga recently, so I posted a picture. I am also not preaching because a lot of (that is) out there already.
“I just post about my quarantine life, or cooking or when I am reading something.”
