Actors work out at home, eat healthy during Covid-19 scare

 

Due to the deadly Covid-19 scare, gyms are shut. Here is how these actors are making sure to be in shape.

Sanjay Gagnani: Fitness-wise, yes, if one sits at home, one would gain weight. But there are people who don’t go to gyms even when gyms are open. So it all depends on you. For example, my inspiration is Akshay Kumar and he doesn’t go to the gym. He does free weight exercises. He uses his own body weight to work out. There are many other ways for us to workout without any type of equipment at home like dancing, climbing stairs, free weights, etc. One can even watch some YouTube videos to workout at home. And when it comes to diet, I read somewhere that one should increase the intake of vitamin C. So, I have been consuming a lot of sweet lime, fresh Lime water, oranges, etc because it somehow helps to fight the virus.

Sanjay Gandhi: I think this is the best time to be with yourself. Know yourself better. This bad phase will also go, life is full of phases. I can eat well at home, spend some good time with my family. I am listening to good music, watching the best cinema. And to be fit, my funda is eating well, go for a long walk and sleep well.

Shweta Rohira: I will be practicing yoga and controlling the diet so that while binge-watching I don’t do a lot of binge eating I will also make sure I am having lots of warm water to keep myself hydrated and would advise everyone to do so as water is the best cleanser for us.

Vijayendra Kumeria: I have planned my workout routine already. I’ll make the most out of the precautionary holidays and will do functional trainer and yoga as well… my diet is usually healthy so that’s not my worry at all… I will also binge as I will have time to burn the calories too.

Dipna Patel: I’m used to exercising and doing my dance practice at home. I will continue with that. The best thing to do right now is to use your personal car if you have to go out at all. People need to understand that we ourselves are carriers of this virus. So, if we move around less, it will definitely make a difference. Let’s not wait for the cases to reach 500 from 38. Precaution is better than cure. I hope people understand this underrated statement fast. And there is no cure at all yet in this case. Home-cooked food is the best food. So veggies, fruits, dal, soups, etc is what I’ll be cooking. I’m not much of a gym person. Bodyweight exercises, dancing and breathing yoga exercises is what works for me. Yes, I have a lot of books that I want to read. So I’m happy I will be able to do that.

Aparna Dixit: My fitness funda is to eat right and healthy and do yoga! Also, meditate to be at peace in these tough times. I am having fewer carbs, only good carbs, and more protein-rich foods. You should practice yoga poses and do exercises like squats, planks, pushups, and crunches at home to maintain your body. Try doing it with your family members, it will keep everyone healthy and also will be fun.

Ridheema Tiwari: Fitness is a 60% diet and 40% activity. I maintain a balanced diet and a favorable combination of weight training, mixed martial arts, yoga and Pranayam. I have early dinners, which is mostly soups and salads. Lunch is staple veggies, dal, rice, roti and lots of fruits and vegetable juices, smoothies as breakfast. For snacking, I have fig, walnuts, roasted chana, bhel or Khakhra  and sprouts. The issue of gaining weight sitting at home is every actor’s concern. I am training with my husband Jaskaran at home where we have created a small space for some warm sessions, kickboxing, stretches, weights, and yoga.

Sharad Malhotra:  Gyms are shut due to the global threat of Coronavirus and the best way to keep fit is by following my daily routine of cardiovascular exercises i.e running, brisk walking, skipping, stretching, spot jogging along with some basic pushups and sit-ups too. A restricted diet is also very helpful and recommended during such times of crisis.

Kunal Thakur: I am doing all my workouts at home. Even in my building, it is made sure that everything is sanitized every single day. Cleanliness is maintained at a top-notch level. But as people are freaking out, cleanliness is given more priority and everything is disinfected. I am continuing my fitness regimes at my house. The gym, clubhouse and swimming pool etc are kept closed in my building. I work out a little bit in my balcony. I am doing stretches, core movement exercises, handstands, leg stands, leg lifts etc. As part of my diet, I have basic routine food like oats with no added sugar, healthy fruits and healthy food.

Parull Chaudhry: We are limited to our homes. I have always worked out at home and so I am going to continue to do that. I am a yoga person so all I need is a mat. I also have some basic gym equipment at home. As far as diet is concerned, I eat very simple homemade food and drink as much water as possible. Also, I am having lots of vitamin C foods like fresh lime juice, oranges and Vitamin C tablets. I am going to take care of myself and maintain my diet, home and workout routine by staying at home.

Himanshu Malhotra: My fitness funda is going to be is Pranayam, Hathoyoga and Surya Namaskar at home as I do yoga in the morning. This has also been recommended by my nutritionist as well as my doctor that it is the best thing that one can do after waking up. I generally take a walk at the beachside but since coronavirus has come, I am walking in my building as its usually vacant at 5:30 in the morning. Walking is very essential as it keeps our weight and food in check and also keeps us healthy as the heart rate is constantly moving at a rapid pace. As we are home and are eating home-cooked food, we will be able to digest everything properly. I am enjoying home-cooked food completely as it is nutritious, delicious and beneficial and I feel my body will get enough rest which is needed.

HUL’s decision to remove ‘fair’ is a welcome but not the ultimate victory: Mou Das

HUL’s decision to remove ‘fair’ is a welcome but not the ultimate victory: Mou Das

The brutal killing of George Floyd in the US once again sparked the debate about colourism and racism. Soon Johnson and Johnson announced that it would stop the production of two of its creams, and Hindustan Unilever Limited quickly followed suit and issued a statement saying they will remove the word “fair” from its popular product “Fair & Lovely”.

Sharing her views on this, producer Mou Das said, “I believe humanity continues to perpetuate in discrimination and violence in small and large scale contexts. ‘Colour and Races’ have waged the worst forms of war, not just against nations but also against humanity.”

“Unless people are stopped from being stigmatized in the world arena by their races and colours, even the next generation will be as much as a victim of these discriminations,” she added.

Mou says she doesn’t blame any particular race and added that we all are victims of our situatedness.

She further said, “All our claims are through our experiences. A girl must not be judged by her appearance, or by the colour of her eyes or of skin or hair. Intrinsic qualities must define an individual. Marriage portfolios are a representation of exactly the conservative mental frame. The multi-billion cosmetic industry runs luring girls to buy magical lotions and potions to improve their skin tone.”

“Now if suddenly no one desires to improve their skin colour what will happen to this Big Game? So definitely not everyone will desire for a world where women will realise their identity beyond their physical features. Hindustan Unilever Limited’s decision to remove the word ‘fair’ from the most popular beauty product is definitely welcome but not the ultimate victory,” she added.

Mou concluded by making a very valid point and said, “Only when everyone realises that beauty is but skin deep and makes conscious decision to go beyond mediocrity to search their true selves, only when the world rises to humanity above all ‘isms’ can we create the utopian world of our dreams.”

Rightly said Mou. We couldn’t agree more.

When we actors come on the sets, they check our body temperature, oxygen level, and they sanitize every room and the entire set two-three times a day. So this is an appreciation video to thank all you guys for being extra careful and doing their extra bit and following all the protocols. We actors want to thank the entire crew, the production, and the producer. Inshallah, this virus will go away soon from the world, and we can get back to the normal shooting but till then we will fight this out. God Bless.”

Shivangi, in her video said, “As you all know we have resumed shooting for our show YRKKH. I am making this video from the set itself, I am in my makeup room. I just want to thank Rajan sir, our producer, and Director’s Kut Production house for taking such utmost care not only for us but for the entire crew. We have thermal and pulse checking, the entire set is sanitized in every three to four hours, makeup rooms are so clean and it is also sanitized every three hours. We have been given personal makeup kit. And in every room, there is a sanitizer bottle, disinfectant sprays, we have been given personal chair with our names labelled. The set is super clean, the toilets are very clean and there are dustbins everywhere, everyone wears mask and face shield, all the protocols are being followed properly. We all are taking all the safety measures and I just want to thank Rajan sir for making us feel super safe and secure.”
