Exclusive! Vinay Anand: 'Celebrities find it difficult to maintain social distancing because we can't deny fans to click selfies'

Govinda’s nephew Vinay Anand, who is currently active in the Bhojpuri cinema, shared his experience working post lockdown. After starting his acting career with the Bollywood film ‘Lo Main Aagaya’, he stepped into Bhojpuri industry and delivered several blockbuster movies.

In an exclusive interview with ETimes, Vinay shared his experience working post lockdown and said, “Yes, I have resumed work but I think we should not start shooting now because still the virus has not ended. Earlier, I used to shoot with so many people but now I only have 10 people on set. As with the new rules, 90 percent of things have changed post lockdown. We shot with the minimum crew for the safety of everyone.. Those who are educated are sincerely following the rules.”

The actor further added, “Many people, who come close to click pictures, should understand that if it can happen to Ashwariya Rai Bacchan it can happen to anyone. Celebrities find it difficult to maintain social distancing because we can’t deny fans to click selfies as they get offended. The best thing to follow social distancing is to do Namaskar from a long distance. It is very difficult for me tomaintain a social distance because I am a very friendly person and used to hug every person but now I do namaste.”

Vinay is best known for his performances in the Bollywood movies such as ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’, ‘Sautela’, ‘Jahan Jaaeyega Hamen Paaeyega’ and ‘Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiyaa’.
