Adah Sharma: I have started cooking amid lockdown

Los Angeles– Actress Adah Sharma says she has started to cook amid the lockdown — something she doesn’t really like doing.

“Since there is a lockdown, there is no shoot but then there is cooking and cleaning stuff that I probably wouldn’t do usually. I don’t really like cooking but I love to eat so I have started cooking. We don’t have households, its just my mom and me. I am playing the piano and have been training in all the stuff that I anyway did but now there is little more time,” Adah told IANS.

Adah says the only silver lining she sees during the lockdown is that the “environment is being happier”.

“I see these videos of peacocks and other animals being happy. I think that is the only silver lining that we have. Other than that I am the kind of person who wants to spend time with people I love, I anyway do. So, I don’t need a lockdown as an excuse and if I want to avoid people then I do,” she added.

Adah made her Bollywood debut in 2009 with the horror film “1920” . She was then seen in films like “Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke”, the “Commando” franchise, and “Bypass Road”, and will next be seen in “Man To Man”.

The film revolves around actor Naveen Kasturia’s character falling in love with and marrying Sharma’s character, only to realise she was biologically a man who became a woman after surgery.

A regular Thursday morning turned one of shock as the nation woke up to the news of Rishi Kapoor’s death after a two-year-long battle with leukemia. And during such difficult time, Alia has been seen standing like a pillar with the Kapoor family.

From attending the funeral rites of Rishi Kapoor to consoling her good friend Ranbir and his mother Neetu Kapoor, Alia is surely acting as a major source of strength for them.

She even took out a moment to mourn the demise of Rishi Kapoor on social media. She posted an emotional note for him, saying he brought goodness in her life.

“What can I say. About this beautiful man… who brought soo much love and goodness into my life. Today, everyone speaks of the legend that is Rishi Kapoor… and though I’ve known him like that all my life… for the past two years I’ve known him as a friend, a fellow Chinese food lover, a total cinema lover, a fighter, a leader, a beautiful storyteller, an extremely passionate tweeter and a father!”

Alia has shared that she has received immense love from Rishi Kapoor over past two years.

“In these past two years the love I have received from him is like a warm hug that I will always cherish! I thank the universe for giving me this opportunity to know him… today probably most of us can say he is like family – because that’s how he made you feel! Love you, Rishi Uncle! Will miss you forever! Thank you for being you,” Alia penned.
