‘Badhaai Ho’ fame actress Sanya Malhotra shares that for her the COVID-19 pandemic came with a reminder to draw boundaries between her personal life and professional life, The actress reveals this is what she intends to carry forward.
She said, “It was during the first lockdown when I realised that I need to have some good healthy boundaries with my work, which I didn’t have before. Also, mentally my work is my work, not my personal life.”
The actor further added, “Sometimes you mix your work and your personal life. But that doesn’t work for me at all. When it comes to having a fear of losing myself, I don’t have that fear just because I have a very strong boundary when it comes to work and my personal life.”
The 29-year-old continued, “I’ll never lose myself in the glitzy world of Bollywood. That’ll never ever happen. My work is my work and personally I’m very different,” while she gave credit to her family and friends for being her anchor, and helping her.
Malhotra shared, “The second wave was really emotionally heavy for me and my family. I was in Mumbai, and my family was in Delhi, we were going through a very rough time. The one lesson that I’ve learned, personally, is to honour all my emotions. Since I was alone, with too much happening at my place, I was trying to suppress all my negative emotions to put forward a strong face. But I realised that you need to respect all our emotions.”
