Payal Rajput is glad that she has successfully navigated the initial tough phases of the lockdown. The Venky Mama actress reveals that she was in Mumbai during the first three phases of the lockdown. She reached her hometown, Delhi, on June 12.
“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,” she shares. “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.”
The actress has signed a new music video in Punjabi, and says 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.
Shooting in the new normal will be challenging, she feels. “Wearing masks, gloves and sanitising frequently is very annoying, but we need to do those things to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread,” the RDX Love actress adds.
For Payal, staging a comeback to Punjabi cinema is like a homecoming. “It’s a romantic music video and will serve as a drive to take up more films there,” she says. The actress will be seen in the Telugu remake of Kannada film, Kalratri. “I instantly connected to the script; this is the kind of role the audience would love to see me in,”she signs off....
