Speaking to Pinkvilla, he said that it is important to stay home and follow the government rules and take the opportunity to spend more time with your family. He was quoted as saying, “I am trying to tell them that I know you are getting bored and it is frustrating to be at home, but this is something we have to do for ourselves, our family and the society at large. The entire world is suffering because of coronavirus. The condition is bad in our country and one needs to understand that when the Government has come down to take such major steps, things might get pretty bad. Let’s not break this chain of self-quarantine and not think of small things like ‘oh I am bored so I must go out’ because you never know who picks it up since it is an airborne disease. Let’s help everyone and stay home. Give your family more time.”



Talking about Bigg Boss again been re-telecasted on television, he said, “I am also at home. I am spending great quality time with my family and watching together, just being together, chilling, having fun. I did watch my entry yesterday. I did not get an opportunity to watch while I was inside or even after coming out but now I can catch up and honestly, I am glued to it.”

He concluded by saying, “It is a Bigg Boss house but the only thing I want to tell people is that you are lucky you get to be a part of Bigg Boss like this because you are around people where you are loved. Over there, it is with strangers. So make use of this better Bigg Boss version.”
