On 23 March, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day lockdown, until 14 April, to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, which means all of us will be isolating at home for some days to come.

Shaheen Bhatt loves being home and having minimal interaction with other humans, so we assumed this lockdown must be a dream come true for the author. But when we got in touch with Shaheen, she gave us a completely different picture. She says, “I usually spend most of my days trying to get out of plans, avoiding meeting people, do as much as I can not to leave the house but as soon as the option has been taken away from me, suddenly I am completely opposite to my personality. I really want to meet people and I really want to go outside which is really bizarre.”

But what is she doing to keep herself busy? She tells us she’s loving the time she is getting to spend with her sister, Alia Bhatt, who has been working every day and now she loves it that Alia is home.

“Alia is taking a creative writing course to keep herself busy. Yesterday, I taught her how to make pasta. She wants to learn how to cook. She wants to learn something new to cook everyday. I am reading, I am working. I am trying to keep a routine going.”
Shaheen Bhatt, Author

The author of I’ve Never Been Unhappier, Shaheen Bhatt is busy working on her next book right now.
