The Kaanta Laga girl says, “Parag is shooting for two shows, one in Baroda and another in Agra. I am in a constant state of fear for Parag and his health. He is also stressed, but whenever he sneezes or coughs, I hit the panic button. I can’t ask him to stop working because the show must go on. I check on him constantly and always remind him to use sanitiser and wear a mask.”
Shefali, who says that it’s important to focus on mental health and talk about it in the current situation, posts messages encouraging people to think positive on social media. Talking about the things that she finds solace in, Shefali shares, “When restrictions were lifted, Parag and I went camping and hiking, which gave us a lot of joy. I have created a small garden in my balcony, and tending to the plants gives me a lot of joy. Just going back to basics has brought a certain sense of calm in my life. In fact, today, rather than the treadmill, I prefer walking on green grass.”
Times have changed and so have people’s way of living. Said Shefali in an earlier interview with us, “The one thing I have realised in the past one year is that we are all somewhere getting back to our roots. We have simplified our lives now and many of us have opted for minimal living. That gives me a lot of peace. Now I am fine with not buying an expensive dress and using that money to fulfill someone’s basic needs.
