Actor Aayush Sharma, along with his wife Arpita Khan, kids Ahil and Ayat, is in Panvel with Salman Khan. In a new interview to Times of India, Aayush mentioned that they had come to spend the weekend but have stayed put for a month now.
Speaking about how the are spending time while in quarantine, he was quoted as saying, “Just enjoying nature in Panvel. We came by chance to the farm for a weekend and now we’re here for a month, but we’re enjoying here.” Talking about how he was teaching his son how to do farming he, said: “I grew up in Himachal, I used to spend a lot of time doing these things. I think it’s a very fatherly thing to do with your kids. In Mumbai, you don’t really get the chance to do these things. I thought it is a good way to bond with Ahil and how basic farming happens. We plucked tomatoes, tired to make tomato soup. I taught him that farming isn’t that easy, but it’s still fun.”
Talking about how his daughter is reacting to the new setting, he observed, “She’s still rather young but she’s started to react to people and associating to people. Luckily I have a lot of time to spend with my family owing to the quarantine. We take her out for strolls and she gets very fascinated by nature around. I’m just trying to fulfil my fatherly duties.”
