Sonali Bendre has become tech savvy thanks to lockdown

Mumbai– Actress Sonali Bendre Behl says the lockdown has given her no alternative but to become tech savvy. She adds that is happy to learn new things during the lockdown, which began in March.

“It is no secret that I am technologically-challenged, but this lockdown has given me no alternative but to get the hang of it! I’ve had to figure out how to log on to zoom calls on my own, how to go LIVE on Instagram etc,” she tweeted on Tuesday.

Also, sharing a brief video that shows her connecting with people online, she wrote: “So here’s me documenting a few lessons I’ve learn this lockdown. Presenting the first post of #MyVirtualDiary!”

Earlier, Sonali had admitted that it is hard not to feel despair and lost amid all the chaos due to the coronavirus crisis, and credited positive and hopeful stories for bringing her out of the darkness.

“When the world as we know it is in chaos, we can’t help but feel despair. I did… I sat with it, I connected with it and I had a conversation with it. But I soon realized if I gave into it… everything would be lost,” Sonali had written on Instagram.

“So I kicked it out the door and put on my cloak of hope because I realised in all that despair, there is always someone somewhere who will give you hope,” she had mentioned.

“Sushant’s family and fans deserve to know the truth. So much has been said, there are so many conspiracy theories, but it is not about who stands on which side anymore, it is about ensuring, that this case reaches a logical conclusion. We must know the truth. #JusticeforSushant,” tweeted Anupam Kher from his verified account on Tuesday.

The veteran actor also posted a video where he speaks in Hindi. His words translate to: “From June 14 till now, after so many ups and downs, where Sushant Singh Rajput’s case has reached, keeping mum on this anymore is like shutting your eyes. I haven’t spoken on this topic till now. But now the situation has become such that without blaming anyone I’d like to say that it is our responsibility to take this to a logical conclusion. He was someone’s son, someone’s brother. As a co-actor, as a human being I feel, he did a very good job as an actor. It is not necessary to criticise anyone at this moment but it is important to find a logical conclusion to his death. It should be found out who is guilty and who is not. There are 50,000 theories and we may or may not agree to them, that’s different, but his family and relatives who are fighting for justice, we should make them feel that we are with them. Keeping your eyes shut is a sign of cowardice and it is not good to be a coward.”
