Star Plus popular show Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin‘s two main characters Virat and Pakhi aka Neil Bhatt and Aishwarya Sharma had recently diagnosed with Covid-19. Now after nearly 18 days, Neil and Aishwarya, who are dating each other in real life, has tested negative for COVID-19. Now, in an interaction with Times Of India, the couple has talked about their quarantine period and also opened up about how their bond matured more over the past few days.
Speaking about how did their quarantine period went? Aishwarya said, “It was quite boring for me. I was sitting at home doing nothing, just taking care of myself. Main chaar deewari mein qaid ho gayi thi akele. I stay alone at home. Thankfully, most part of the day, Neil and I were on video calls on.”
Neil said, “For me this quarantine period was not about chilling. I did’t want to watch any films or web series. I was doing several breathing exercises daily. I was back on track after three days only but I was still not taking it lightly. More so because mentally I am more like an army person. I followed my regimen diligently.”
However, they both were there for each other as a couple in these tough times. Aishwarya quoted saying, “I actually had a very strong support system all this while. Neil was there to guide me about what to do and what not to do. Neil physically na ho ke bhi mere saath hamesha tha.”
While Neil said, “I am really happy that Aishwarya is saying this and acknowledges this. I love her even more for this. I was just there for her, at all times, all these days. She was all alone at home. Had I not tested positive, I would have gone to her house to give whatever she required, perhaps. The least I could do for her was to be in touch with her continuously.”
Speaking about what was the first thing they both did on meeting each other after testing negative for virus? Aishwarya said, “After my test came out negative, I came straight to the set and hugged Neil for at least six-seven minutes. It was a long hug. I was so happy and emotional to see him.”
While Neil said, “The realization that our bond has grown stronger over these few days happened when we met each other for the first time after the quarantine. I came on the set first and then she came. That hug made us realize that we were growing closer to each other during this time.”
