BOLLYWOOD: Style diva Sonam Kapoor is in sync with her sensibilities as an actor and enjoys the universe that’s hers to keep as a wife. But the quarantine has now also exposed her to her own privilege, which she talked about in her latest interview with Filmfare.
Starting off with a discussion about her routine during lockdown, the actor revealed that she doesn’t mind doing the same things every day. “It keeps me sane,” she said. “My husband wakes up at 5:30 am and I wake up between 6:30 – 8 am. I have jeera pani and two glasses of hot water with lemon.” Her day is then followed up by coffee, a 40-minute walk on the treadmill, suryanamaskars (sun salutations) and cooking.
Not only does Kapoor exercise extensively and regularly but also only knows how to cook vegetarian meals. “My specialties include Sindhi kadi, aloo tuk and South Indian curry, since I love South Indian food,” she revealed.
The Veere Di Wedding star then discussed the things she realised in quarantine which she wouldn’t have otherwise. “You realise how privileged you are,” she confessed. “You understand how good a life you lead as compared to others. I’ve only been grateful this whole time as opposed to being frustrated that I’m stuck at home.”
After deep contemplation, Kapoor further relayed that although everyone is dealing with the same storm, their struggles are different. “We’re all in the same storm but in different boats. I’m grateful that mine is comfortable, nice and warm and has enough food.”
