It’s heartening to see some celebrities using their platform for the greater good
With coronavirus making sure to keep everyone locked inside their safe sanctuaries, more and more people are finding it hard to look for entertainment within the confines of their home.
COVID-19 also does not discriminate between celebrities and the general public which means they’re under lock-down as well, and in true celeb fashion, many have taken to social media to document their quarantine shenanigans.
Here’s how celebs are using their down time – some are quite creative while others are wasting time (like many of us), while many other have valuable advice.
Maya Ali decided to spread a much-needed message – how to clean your house! The actor filmed a time lapse of herself scrubbing away at major points of contact in her home. “Let’s start from our home,” she wrote and this is one message we all need to put in effect immediately!
Ayeza Khan may not have been the ‘ideal’ mother in Meray Paas Tum Ho but in real life, she’s just that and much more as illustrated by her mini advise series on Instagram featuring her little one, Hoorain Taimoor.
That’s not all. She even took the time out to pen down a message on how to take care of your little ones during this time. “Your children need atleast 10 to 13 hours of sleep. A regular bedtime routine encourages good sleep patterns. A routine of bath and story before bedtime can signal their brain that its time to sleep,” she wrote.
Ali Zafar turned to holding a live session to impart awareness about coronavirus. He titled the video ‘How to Fight Coronavirus.’
Newly wed Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly also made sure to be on top of their quarantine game – both of them posted pictures on their Instagrams with a lengthy caption on how you can stay safe. “The solution is simple. Stay home. Wash your hands. For 20 seconds! Keep your distance from others as much as possible,” they wrote.
Hania Aamir also chimed in with valuable advice, albeit in a more fun way – someone has to keep the spark alive during trying times! Here are some highlights from her message:
“Logon se door rahain. Yeh wala mera favourite hai. (Stay away from people – this one’s my favourite.)”
“Hand shake jhappi pappi se parhaiz karain (Avoid hand shakes, kisses and hugs.)”
“Jo shoday bache hain jinko lagta hai kai unko kuch nahi hoga woh baaz ajaen. (To the kids who think they won’t be affected, stop it.)
It’s pretty heartening to see some celebrities using their platform for the greater good! While others are making the most of their time just living out their down time and bonding over it, and we’re not mad about it! Case in point: Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain.
Iqra shared an adorable video of her husband braiding her hair at home – sometimes, it really is the simple things that can put a smile on our faces!
Here’s hoping that you’re keeping safe and healthy. Stay home, stay safe and practice healthy isolation!
