Due to the rise in covid cases, the Maharashtra government has announced that films, TV serials will be halted in the state. Actress Monika Chauhan who is presently seen in Dangal TV’s show Ranju Ki Betiyaan alongside popular actors Reena Kapoor, Roopal Tyagi, Ayub Khan, Deepshikha Nagpal shares that she will miss meditating with her co-actors and that practicing yoga has helped her beat the fear of coronavirus.
Sharing more about Monika says, “My days are well planned from morning to evening. I try to wake up two hours before my call time. It’s my morning ritual to get up early and set an hour for myself where I like to do yoga and meditation. I have been following this routine before I came into the entertainment industry and I intend to continue it now with shoots halted as well. It’s like a stress breaker for me as I cannot function properly without it and a quality time with myself that wakes me fresh and keeps me hydrated. Meditation and yoga are what kept me calm and distressed during the lockdown and even now with cases rising.”
She also adds, “Like my co-actors, even I live separate from my family. I do my chores and prepare my meals. I’m not a foody person. I love to be fit. I keep my food light and my dishes are inspired by fitness and I always prefer homemade food as that’s what usually benefits and reflects you and your health.”
Yoga has indeed helped people gain a positive emotional state and strength during these difficult times. Ranju Ki Betiyaan is a heart touching story of a single mother Ranju and her struggles of raising 4 daughters in a patriarchal society. It delves into the various societal issues faced by single mothers, and will witness Ranju empowering herself to raise her four daughters single-handedly to help them achieve their dreams.
