Actor Arjun Rampal and his model girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades are at his second home in Karjat amid the coronavirus lockdown. The couple decided to stay back in the town with their baby son for his safety.

Arjun told Mid-day that they decided against travelling during lockdown. “We decided to stay back for my son’s safety. While he is too young now, this will be a story to tell him when he grows older. Besides, Mumbai is just a few hours away, and hence, easily accessible in case of an emergency,” he said.

Karjat has not registered any cases of Covid-19 so far, which makes Arjun confident about his decision. “Since there are no cases here, we are secure. We have an open space and [are enjoying] being amid nature instead of confined to an apartment,” he said. Arjun added that he is keeping in touch with his two daughters Myra and Mahikaa over phone calls.

The video also showed Gabriella lounging on the couch, annoyed by Arjun’s camera.
