It’s been a year since the first 21 days of lockdown was announced in India last year amid the COVID-19 crisis worldwide. Since then, life has definitely not been the same. A lot of things changed in the way we have been leading our lives. Now, a year later, the country is seeing a surge in the number of cases once again, leading to a partial lockdown in states like Maharashtra.

Reflecting on the year gone by, a few celebrities share how the pandemic brought about some major lifestyle changes for them and more.

Paramavatar Sri Krishna actor, Prateik Chaudhary says, “I learnt to eat home-cooked food more, do different workout at home. I feel I have become more reserved as a person. These days I go out less, don’t party much or waste time unnecessarily and try to be more productive by using my time wisely. Basically, I like the person I have become.”

CID, Santoshi Maa actor, Micckie Dudaaney says, “One of the major changes that I have implemented because of Corona is that I’ve started eating home food more of home food. I have also started working out at home to stay fit. It also made me realise that you don’t need 100 people to celebrate any occasion you just need your family and close friends to make merry.”

CID and Jag Janani Maa Vaishnodevi actor, Hrishikesh Pandey says, “I also started cooking and doing all other household chores on my own. In fact I have done all these in the past so it did not bother me much. What it made me value more is time. So I started working harder realising how we need to earn well. At the same time, it’s important to disconnect from your work once you come back home and chill. Everything in life is important is what I have learnt.”

Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain actor, Saurabh Kaushik says, “We should always live in the present and don’t think of the future and give much more importance to savings are the things I have learnt. And having that me-time is also important. During the lockdown I have been alone in my apartment that was the toughest time for me. But it made me stronger. Such tough times make you realise how important your family is and who are true friends. It also made me realise how important it is to maintain your finances and be prepared for difficult days.”

Well, these sure are some very important changes and lessons that the pandemic has brought with it. I’m sure all of us have our own versions of this!

Here’s hoping we all fight this uncertain and grave situation together by staying safe, indoors and healthy. And until then, make the most out of the situation and stay happy.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed lives in a way we never imagined and the second wave in India has led the government to impose restrictions in some parts of the country. As a result, many film production houses have pushed the release dates and one such movie that has been affected is Simon McQuoid’s much-awaited action-fantasy film, ‘Mortal Kombat’.

Earlier, Mortal Kombat was slated to hit the theatres in India on 16th April and due to the lockdown protocols in some states, the release date has now been pushed to 23rd April. The movie will release in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu across cinemas in India. The video game franchise-inspired film has an international star cast which includes Joe taslim, Jessica McNamee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Sisi Stringer, Lewis Tan, Ludi Lin, Mehcad Brooks and Josh Lawson.

In this movie, MMA fighter Cole Young will seek out for Earth’s greatest champions to fight against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. The plot sure seems very interesting and I’m sure all fans are super excited to watch it on the big screen this month, of course, with all safety precautions in place.

href=”author/showbiz-intern”>Showbiz Intern , 06 Apr 2021Aadil Khan (Source: Instagram| @ aadilkhanitis)

When was the last time you promised yourself that you will start working out from tomorrow? In my case, I don’t have a track of how many times I said that to myself, but of late I’ve been making some progress. Sticking to fitness goals is difficult and we often tend to give up halfway. But again, it’s not impossible. Special Ops 1.5 actor, Aadil Khan underwent a major body transformation in just 4 months! Can you believe it? I have massive respect for him because I know that kind of dedication requires loads of motivation.

The actor who made his big-screen debut in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s romantic drama movie Shikara, took to his social media to share a before and after picture of his fitness transformation, and the post stirred a buzz amongst his fans because that physical change was truly praiseworthy. Along with the photo, the actor shared a very inspiring message on the highs and lows of his fitness journey. The pandemic had taken a toll on his mental health but eventually, he managed to push himself out of that phase and focused all his energy on his transforming himself and giving a complete 180-degree turn to his physical and mental health. Aadil also shared that his father, Zafar Ullah Khan played a major role in keeping him motivated throughout his journey.

Speaking of his body transformation, the actor shares-

In my profession, I am my own tool.. which means I need to be physically and mentally fit. Also it means that I can’t let my dreams die. I can’t give up, and I have to keep the grip strong. The whole year was a write-off and then gradually things started opening up… I am proud of myself, that I could hit back.. I am in the best shape of my life, physically and mentally.

Such an inspiring and motivating story, don’t you think? Like I said, sticking to fitness goals is not easy but it’s not impossible too. Hard work and determination always bear the best fruits and all you got to do is just get started and stop waiting for the right time because the time is going to be right only when you decide to get going. Aadil Khan will next be seen in Special Ops 1.5 and I’m looking forward to seeing him in it.
