Time passes quickly when you have a child at home: Kapil Sharma talks about his quarantined life


Kapil Sharma has always been a family man. From making his mother a part of his show to spending time with his wife and daughter, Kapil has proved to be a doting husband, son, and father. 

Talking about the 21-day lockdown announced by PM Modi and how he spends his time at home, Kapil said, "I have been home ever since my daughter was born in December. I would step out only to shoot for my show’s episodes. Now, of course, we aren’t shooting, so staying at home hasn’t really been all that different." He is glad to be at home with his three-month-old daughter Anayra and wife Ginni as “time passes quickly when you have a child at home”. Moreover, he has been watching online content, has written a stand-up skit and started reading books that he used to buy at airports but never read.

He said, “I am happy India has a good control on things and I pray that the lockdown works and helps us get rid of the virus. People should follow it strictly but some of them aren’t taking it seriously as they don’t know the gravity of the situation. Only when our PM said so on TV, that many people realised their mistake. We should learn from countries that were prepared and ones that were not about what to do and what not to do.”

The actor-comedian shared, “I have observed that earlier I hardly heard birds chirping, but recently, I was glad to hear a Koyal (bird) singing, and even spotted some sparrows near my house. It felt like kudrat detox kar rahi hai. We have developed a lot but also in that race we took nature for granted.”
