There is a painter in an actor

To make quarantine time fun and productive many actors have picked up their brushes and painted the canvas. Janhvi Kapoor uploaded a picture captioned “Self isolation productivity #ilovepineapple #stayhomestaysafe #fightcorona”.

This is not all, Gully Boy fame Siddhant Chaturvedi painted as well and shared his work captioned “Before this, life never stood still. After him, it never will. #LoveInQuarantine #Painting #quarantine #MyNotes #MyBrush”.

So far Corona has taught us to slow down a bit in life, revive our hobbies, spend time with family, maintain good hygiene and of course doing chores on your own. But wasn’t that how we started?
