The year 2020 has not been a pleasant one for everyone in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Actor Aparshakti Khurana, who has been shooting in Chandigarh amid the new normal, loved spending time with his family and loved ones during the lockdown. Though he made the most of his free time, he cannot wait to get back on the sets and watch films in a theatre. In an exclusive interview with ETimes, Aparshakti opened up about the highest and lowest moments of 2020, things he is looking forward to in the New Year and more! Excerpts:
Describe 2020 in one sentence
A summer vacation that’s just not ending. Huh!
If you had to say something to this year, what would that be?
I would thank this year for being kind to me and my loved ones and that I wished it was the same for everyone.
What is your highest and lowest moment of 2020?
Highest would be spending quality time with loved ones. The lowest would be NOT BEING ON A FILM SET!
Favourite look of 2020
Beyonce in Sidhartha Tytler outfit
Favourite film of 2020
I loved watching ‘Ludo’!
Favourite OTT show of 2020
There were some that I really liked. But if I have to choose one, it would be ‘Scam 1992’ and ‘A Suitable Boy’.
Talent you acquired in 2020
2020 allowed me to slow down and learn how to cook and stay fitter from inside.
One holiday destination you missed in 2020
London is my favourite destination and I really missed going there. Lowkey, I hope London missed having me, too.
Biggest regret/missed something in 2020
I really don’t regret anything but I did miss going to the theatres. Watching a movie in a theatre is an experience that 2020 deprived me/us of.
Resolution for 2021
I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions.
One film you are looking forward to in 2021?
There are a few – ‘Helmet’ for obvious reasons, ‘Maidaan’, ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Fast and Furious 9’
If Genie grants you three wishes – what would you ask for?
The first would definitely be to eradicate Coronavirus.
