The Coronavirus outbreak has been wreaking havoc globally. Amid COVID-19 scare, PM Narendra Modi called for a complete nationwide lockdown for the next 21 days. Actress Kangana Ranaut who is currently in Manali, her hometown spoke about the ongoing situation in a recent interview. Since everything is in lockdown the film industry too has been affected too by the coronavirus. When asked about how the industry is trying to help their daily wage workers to cope up with the loss.
To which she said- "We all are doing our bit and also donating for this. Our huge concern for the economy has landed us all in the situation where we are with no concern for human well being and this could also be a potential bio war where countries are trying to get down each other's economies. We have to reflect as to where we have landed as people, as a nation and why are we letting our greed, our senses guide us and not our consciousness."
She further added, "if this lockdown goes on for 21 days we will be two years behind economically, but if it goes beyond 21 days it is going to be a disastrous situation for our nation because we are a developing one."
When asked about the losses she faced on the personal front with her films delayed Kangana said, “Right now we only exist as people here. I’ve stopped to see myself as an actor and like I said we should be ready for almost anything, we should be prepared to rise above individual concerns. So my films are also like everything else it’s just stuck and I don’t know where we will land it depends on when we come out of it. That is the reason I want more people to understand the seriousness of the situation. Right now individual gain or loss is not my concern.”
