Akshay Kumar in his recent interview has compared the current lockdown situation to the Salman Khan hosted reality show, Bigg Boss. In the interview on Home Talkies segment on Radio Nasha, Akshay said, “Ye bahut zaruri hai ki hum sab ghar pe rahein. Thoda time bita lete hain chote chote video bana lete hain. Apka phone ane ke pehle mai ek video call pe tha ek director aur writer ke saath. Hum video call pe puri script padh rahe hote hain, Kisi ko bulate nahi, kisi ko mai bulata nahi, kyuni aa nahi sakte. Ana hi nahi chahiye (It is essential that we stay at home. I spend some time making short videos that I upload on social media. Just before you called, I was on a video call with my director and writer and we were reading entire script on video calls. I don’t call anyone, no one can come and should come given the outbreak)”.
Akshay further said that “The discussion that happens during a personal meeting can never happen over video calls but we must best use of technology. Have you watched that game, Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss? I feel God is Bigg Boss right now he wants us all to stay inside our houses. The winner is that person who will stay at home. Spend time with your wife and kids, stay hygienic. I can only say that stay at home and pay attention to your health. People can neglect health at such times”.
