After testing negative, in an interview Aftab Shivdasani talks about how 2020 was an year which taught us the value of work and freedom. He says – “For me, personally, the year was eventful as my wife and I became parents. And, yes, I had Covid but 2020 taught me to value health and life. Now, that the vaccine is out, it is still early days. Never in the history of mankind has a vaccine been invented so soon- in nine months. Usually, it takes years to make. I am not in a hurry to get the vaccine. Moreover, my body is still producing anti-bodies, so I am relatively safe,”
Aftab Shivdasani further adds “I am looking at a few films and web shows next. A lot of things are going to get better in 2021. This year taught us to value one’s work and freedom which we were denied. I shot in between the pandemic and that was an experience too. There aren’t a lot of shoots happening as people are taking it slow. It is still early days. Though the precautions are being taken at shoot, there are cases of people testing positive every few days and not just actors but technicians, sportsmen, politicians etc. We are not out of the woods yet.
He says – “The pandemic is still on. Covid-19 is dangerous as many people have suffered a lot due to it. In the industry, there is a certain amount of scepticism but people also realize that this is our livelihood and we have to work. They are going about with certain precaution protocols in place.”
Aftab is looking forward to celebrate Christmas in London.
