  • Amid coronavirus outbreak, Mouni Roy unleashed her inner artist as she took to painting during the home lockdown. She took to her Instagram to share her work and wrote, "SHIVOHAM SHIVASWAROOPOHAM Well, they are ready. The joy of getting back to something you loved doing as a little girl, unmatched! Drawing sir used to come home every Sunday & it used to be a 3 hour class, sometimes by yourself, sometimes with other students and friends, depending on how it needed to be done that particular week ... In Cooch Behar we didn't have much , in every way, specially not much to entertain ourselves, so we danced & played outdoors picking up fallen branches making wooden muddy houses, painted & did pottery & made puppets and on a half day at school went to the Durga Protima makers parlour right opposite Baba’s office and sat watched clayed our hands & made little murtis of our own. Basically very primal & Very HAPPY! Going back to the basics , shall we? @anusoru thank you for asking me to paint after almost a decade, felt really good; the one in the middle s "Shiv ji meditating in the jungle," it's time for mine now, TATA [sic]."

  • Soha Ali Khan took to painting by sharing a message for everyone to stay home and stay safe amid the lockdown. She shared this picture on Instagram and wrote, "Lockdown day 1 - time to explore new hobbies #stayhome #staysafe [sic]."

While many decided to self-pamper and cook, a few took up sketching and painting. Salman Khan shared a video during her lockdown period, and it took the internet by storm.

  • Ananya Panday and Rhysa Panday, the Panday sisters too opted to paint and spend some quality time with each other.
