The actor shared that he has always learnt the technique of maintaining a calm exterior through the toughest of times from his mother.
This ‘Mothers Day’ Shantanu opened up on his mother’s traits coming in handy for him through the challenging phase that his Covid scare proved to be.
“My mom has had health issues in the past and inspite of those conditions I have seen her taking care of herself and us with a smile on her face at all times. So, I have grown up watching her fight and actually overcome those matters related to her health for good in a very strong manner. Over the years I picked up my mom’s spirit to fight health related issues.
Shantanu also spoke about following his mother’s teachings which helped him build his mental strength in many ways. He said, “The way she has uplifted not only her physical strength but her mental strength as well in challenging times made me adapt to the thought that if you make yourself believe you are fit and healthy, then your body will feel and react in the same way. These traits of being mentally strong, calm and composed and fighting through all that’s pulling me down are exactly what helped me strengthen my recent fight with Covid.”
