The COVID-19 cases in India have crossed the 10 lakhs mark. And while the government is still advising to take proper precautionary and safety measures, many are still not following social-distancing. Actor Kettan Singh says people who are not following or maintaining social-distancing are stupid. “It is stupid that people still don’t realise how important social-distancing is, despite so many warnings. This is the only thing that can defeat Coronavirus. I don’t know what are they thinking but I would like to publicly say that these people are really stupid to not maintain social distancing,” he said.
Kettan says he has always been a cleanliness freak
He also feels that people are not that scared of Corona-virus now as they were earlier and added, “At least be cautious when you step out and take precautions that are needed. But right now, looking at the way people are stepping out, it feels that they just don’t care.”And what precautions is he taking? “I am doing the basics. I always carry a sanitizer, I always have my mask on and I even carry an extra mask. I always carry food and water from my home, and I carry two sanitizers one I keep in my pocket which is like a spray, and the other one is the normal dispenser sanitizer that I keep in my car.
“If I have to go to a place and I see there are like seven to eight people, I don’t get out of my car, until and unless the person who has called me tells me that we are clear now and that I can come. Because I live with my mother, and she is above sixty, so I make sure I don’t go outside and carry the virus inside my house. So, I take little extra precautions,” he said.The Coronavirus pandemic has increased the workload in every house because it is advisable to clean anything and everything that comes from outside. Kettan says he has always been a cleanliness freak and believes that it is a good change.
“I work out, I sing and I also play guitar a lot” kettan
“I don’t know about others, but I am anyways a cleanliness freak. It is a good thing that people have realised this because many of my friends live so un-hygienically, I don’t know how they are living in the current situation. I hope this positive change of cleanliness has affected them too. It’s high time that we all became cleanliness freaks,” he said.The “Jigariyaa” actor Kettan feels that the audience’s taste must have changed after being locked inside their houses for over three months and added, “I think the taste has definitely changed with television channel going completely mythological now. People are watching mythology like anything. The stupidity that comes along with a different kind of content can also be seen in the desperation of the current shows to come back on-air. It has really taken back the creativity they could have had.”
He further added, “But I see seriously cannot comment on the kind of content that is being churned out now, but definitely the audience’s taste has changed. They might have got bored of watching the same thing from the past three months. I can’t watch a series because they have many parts and they are too slow so I prefer watching movies.”What are you doing to keep your mind at peace? “I work out, I sing and I also play guitar a lot. So working out and playing a lot of music and singing keeps me at peace,” Kettan concluded.
