BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Bollywood veteran Dharmendra is enjoying fresh air and clear skies that the lockdown has resulted in. The 84-year-old actor firmly believes that the suffering caused by coronavirus is a direct result of human actions.
“It is a very tight slap on our face from mother earth. We need to love and nurture nature. The virus has come because of us and we are suffering because of our own actions,” said the Sholay actor to PTI.
He further added, “I hope people understand and cut down on a lot of unessential things and not become greedy and be happy with what they have. Less is always good. Simplicity should be the way of life. Everyone must follow this. This is a lesson for life.”
However, he is quite happy with the state of nature especially. He said, “Due to lockdown there is no pollution, there is so much fresh air, the sky is so clear, everything looks beautiful. I am so happy to see this time it reminds me of the time that we lived back then. We all should take lockdown positively.”
He is content living in his farmhouse. He said, “I am living life like this and I am very happy about it. I come to the city when there is work and when not I am happy here in my farmhouse. I am born to give happiness, entertain and inspire everyone.”
