“My heroes were cricketers, film stars, other athletes until last year, but when I see doctors and nurses working without a break, day and night, I feel there is nobody doing more heroic work than them. Hence I say that my definition of the word heroes has changed.”
Recently he went to a hospital with a relative and witnessed how they worked in the current times.
“I saw a doctor busy trying to save the patients. At one point, because of fatigue, she even collapsed in front of me. But with help from her colleagues, she was back on her feet in no time and started working again. The way they are helping people not only physically but emotionally as well, even after so much pressure, is commendable. I don’t think anyone can do a job like them. So many of them haven’t been going back to their homes for 3 to 4 days at a stretch,” he shares.
Currently, the actor is in his hometown spending time with his family.
“I am in Chandigarh right now. The shoots stalled in Mumbai and thus I thought rather than living alone I can go and live with my parents. Probably in the first or second week of June when things might look better, I will return to Mumbai. Above everything else my health is important and I cannot risk it,” says the actor.
