What do you do when life throws lemons on you? No, you don't throw it back, you pick those lemons and make some lemonade for yourself and relax for a while. How? Well, let's understand. This unexpected global pandemic has brought all of us on backfoot since we're all lockdown in our homes, without having the option of going out. Now, quarantined in our homes, what we can do is, either we can curse everything around us and wait impatiently for the lockdown to get over, or we can use this time productively and do something good for ourselves and our loved ones. Food for thoughts? (Recommended Read: Shahid Kapoor Posts Photo Of Doting Wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor's Delicious Banoffee Pie On Instagram)
Anyway, this lockdown has proved to be a boon to those working couples, who hardly got any time to spend with each other, due to their hectic schedule. Now, since they're spending 24 hours together, they're exploring new sides of their partners, that they had never known before. Even celebrity couples are no different. One such celebrity is, Shakti-Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki fame, Rubina Dilaik. Following the new lockdown, she had an Instagram live chat session with ETimes TV and spilt some tea about her quarantine. Scroll further to know more!
In an Instagram live chat with ETimes TV, Rubina candidly spoke about her life and her relationship with her husband, Abhinav. She talked about learning new things about herself. In her words, "This period has been an intimate time with myself. I am really working towards getting to know myself and my relationship with Abhinav. I am giving my home a touch of my own. Can’t tell you how time flies away. I have been busier than ever. I used to think that shooting for 10-12 hours and then travelling for 3-4 hours is too much. But now I feel managing household duties are more difficult. Now I realise how grateful we should be to our mothers and our house-helps. This period has been an eye-opener." We absolutely agree with you. (Also Read: Karan Johar's Kids, Yash And Roohi Johar Troll His Dancing Skills And He Is Now Talentless Mr Johar)
On the question of how Rubina and her husband, Abhinav plan their holidays and who takes the charge, Rubina said, "I would take all credit to all our activities together. But when it comes to photography and film making, I would give Abhinav the entire credit. Most of the times, I surprise him with our travel destinations. I just let him know a few days or a few months in advance to keep himself free. Now, he is so used to my surprises, he has given me an ultimatum to discuss the places with him. I had planned our anniversary travel too but now that has gone for a toss. We had discovered long back, when we were dating that we are two different personalities. Talking about travelling, he is adventurous and I am an exotic traveller. So, we have to find our mutual grounds. I pick up the best resorts and scenic side and he picks up the activities."
Since this quarantine is making us spend a lot of time with our significant half, we're exploring new dimensions of our relations with them, which we had never known before. Rubina is no exception to this. She said, "Change is the only constant. We all change as per time and relationship also change and you need to adapt. You need to grow together. We have seen each other grow as a person and also acknowledged it. You need to embrace it. If you say that ‘I love you like the way I used to love 5-6 years back’ then you are heading for a doomsday. Either you or your partner will change and you won’t be able to relate to them. You have to let the other person change and evolve. Be the wind beneath each other’s wings. It’s not ‘Rabb Ne Bana Di Jodi’ and ‘Happily ever after’. You have to keep the passion and spark constant and that requires work."
