The Covid has played havoc with human contact even between individuals who are so close to one another as to be considered inseparable.
Legendary real-life couple Hema Malini and Dharmendra have stayed apart for more than a year. As soon as Covid raised its ugly head Dharamji locked himself away in his farmhouse outside Mumbai far away from the madding crowd.
Says Hemaji, “It is best for his safety. Right now we would rather think about his health than about spending time together. We are going through the worst crisis that mankind has faced in a hundred years. If we must save civilization we must be strong , even if it means making big sacrifices.”
Actor Tanuj Virwani completely understands where Hemaji is coming from. “My Mom is in Poland with her sister .She had flown there with her dog before the pandemic. Now post Covid she cannot fly back as pets are not allowed to travel.I miss her. But now’s the time to do whatever is required to free the world from this Covid curse.”
