It has been 4 months since the Coronavirus lockdown began, Payal Rajput is glad to successfully navigate the initial tough phases of the lockdown. The actress spent the three phases of the lockdown in Mumbai, later she flew back to her hometown, Delhi, on June 12.
Speaking to a leading daily about her lockdown experience, she said, “The lockdown has taught so many things to so many people. I was stuck in my apartment in Mumbai for more than two months; there was no maid, so I did all the chores on my own and that is something I had never done before in my life. During that period, I realised the significance of being content and grateful with what we have in life. After I came to Delhi I am being pampered by my parents (smiles). So it just goes to show that family is our real strength during these testing times(sic.)”
The actress said she will start shooting next month. “We have to start somewhere; we can’t get into a shell. I have been getting offers, but was hesitant to take them up fearing the Coronavirus spread. But now I have taken up one project. I need to build immunity whilst taking all the precautionary measures, she elaborates (sic.)”
Payal also said shooting with all COVID-19 regulations will be challenging. She said wearing masks, gloves and sanitising frequently is very annoying, but we need to do those things to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread.
On the work front, Payal Rajput will be making her debut in Tamil with a film titled Angel, along with actor Udhayanidhi Stalin and directed by K. S. Adhiyaman. The actress will also be seen in the Telugu remake of the Kannada film, Kalratri.
