Actress Priya Banerjee who will be shortly seen in Vikram Bhatt’s Twisted 3 purchased a treadmill amidst of Corona Virus. Obeying PM Narendra Modi’s decision Priya said Yes to the Lockdown but no to stopping her from working out , she even shared her views on the current situation going in the world.
Priya said “Well it’s really sad with whatever is happening around the world but it’s not shocking as we should have seen this coming. We have really put our environment through extremes and I guess it’s just taking a break at the moment and resetting itself. The only precaution I believe we can all take is by staying at home maintaining social distancing and self isolation. That is the need of the hour and we must take this seriously.
She shared how she has been taking precautions “Well I’ve not stepped out for almost 13 days now and last night prime minister of India announced another 21 days lockdown nationwide which is brilliant I feel. I’ve been basically avoiding human contact. Which is what we all need to do”
Travelling is a day to day job for an actor hence Priya is not really used to staying at home , here is how she is spending the quarantine period “It’s quite an experience, I mean it’s making me quite restless as I’m not really used to staying home for these many days at a stretch even though I absolutely love being home but this time the situation is different. But I’m looking forward to lots of reading watching shows, cooking and working out.
Talking about her decision to purchase a treadmill Priya said “So basically I was at the gym and somebody sent me a link that the gyms are going to be shut so I spoke to my Gym owner and he said yes it’s going to be shut from midnight till 31st March and then I felt that the situation was going to bad and I just assumed that it can be longer than 31st March. I even thought that sometimes I am shooting till late night and I am pretty exhausted so it gets difficult for me to go to the gym to workout so it’s always nice to have a treadmill at home. I do enjoy running a lot so I just thought why not just get a treadmill. So it’s always good to be good working out at home rather than travelling to the gym .So that was the whole idea which went on to my head within an hour. So I went on internet and ordered a mini cute looking treadmill which is fold-able as well I can take it to places even if I am travelling or shifting to another place in future. So I think that was a good idea because now I can do push ups , sit ups , abs workout and even run which is great. I am not really worried about gym opening anymore I can quarantined for like ever (laughs). I’m glad I bought it.”
She even shared how she stocked all the food items as soon as she got to know about the lock down ” I’ve stocked up for almost a few weeks also I believe our basic amenities will be available in stores still just for limited hours during the day. So I believe the government will be taking care of all that.”
Priya ended up giving a message to all the people around the world, she said “Just requesting each and everyone of you to stay home. That’s the only way we can stop this. We’re in this together and we will come out of it stronger as a race. Just be compassionate and kind and let’s beat this virus.”
