Saif Ali Khan reveals his concern for migrants during lockdown as well as how he is connecting with his son Taimur Ali Khan on a whole new level.
Like everything else, movie shoot schedules also have been indefinitely postponed and celebrities are spending quality time at home. In a recent interview, ‘Sacred Games’ actor Saif Ali Khan weighed in on the migrant exodus, the things he’s been doing during the lockdown and the way forward for the country.
Hindustan Times quoted him saying, “First of all, we are really privileged, so every time someone asks me if I am okay in a lockdown, I start worrying about what migrant workers are going through. So me sitting and telling you how I can chill it feels a little hollow.”
DNA India quoted him adding, “But I think at a time like this and at all times beauty is where it always was in great books, great music, great conversations, good thoughts, and good meals. I practice the guitar, I want to be a better guitar player. I might polish up a language like French. There are so many things to do. I am also learning to cook, and spending time with my son.”
“We have all been home and some people are finding it harder than others, financially, emotionally. But the point is we should be prepping for the spike in cases, so I hope that’s happening. Because I think at some point we are all going to have to go out and probably risk getting there or some people who can afford it will have to lock themselves up for a year, those are the two choices I can see. I hope the government is preparing.”
He wasn’t sure if movie shoots would resume unless health concerns were addressed. Let’s hope things start getting back to normal (or the new normal) soon.
