Turns out the bizarre lifestyle of self-quarantine that was being filmed a year ago, is actually a lifestyle of the world in 2020!
While last year people wondered how can one survive this, the audience can connect the dots of this eery coincidence. House Arrest, stars Ali Fazal and Shriya Palgaonkar released on 15th November 2019. This was pretty much the time when the coronavirus breakout must have occurred in Wuhan!
Shriya took it to Instagram to share this spooky coincidence and writes to the makers, “Quite bizarre to think that last year this time we were filming House Arrest. Clearly you guys saw it coming @samitbasu @ghoshshashanka @netflix_in 🤭🙃. I hope everyone is still being patient and doing their duty of staying indoors. I say duty because we truly can’t be selfish here. The house arrest must carry on until further notice. I’ve been binge-watching and binging 😅��And you? #HouseArrest #Netflixoriginal #Throwback #reelandreal #quarantine”.
