Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar is currently spending time at home with her family due to coronavirus lockdown. She is making full use of the free time. From learning hydroponics to her workout sessions, Bhumi is keeping her fans entertained. And now the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha actress will be speaking to spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to discuss the need of staying positive amid coronavirus pandemic. 

The chat session will see Bhumi speak on the need to focus on mental health and the social and economic repercussions thereafter.

Bhumi said, “At a time like this, we need to be deeply connected with our inner self, our spiritual side to tide over the difficulties, the anxiousness that we all are facing at various levels. 

“The thought of having a conversation with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, whose pioneering work with Art of Living is an inspiration to so many, stemmed from the feeling of discussing how we can look at this moment and steer ourselves towards positivity.

Bhumi also wants to propagate the idea of sustainable living. She, therefore, plans to request Sri Sri’s guidance to Indians on how to focus on climate justice post coronavirus.

“I will also be discussing climate change with Gurudev and understand his point of view on this burning issue and how we will all need to refocus on this post coronavirus. Through our discussion, I’m sure I will learn how to be a much more conscious citizen of our nation, and I’m hoping many like me will find this session extremely beneficial,” Bhumi concluded.

Last year, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, in collaboration with Bollywood superstar, Sanjay Dutt initiated a #DrugFreeIndia campaign to protect and fight drug abuse amongst the youth.

Bhumi along with Kapil Sharma, Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan, Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Aamir Khan to name a few have joined him for this cause.
