Speaking of his Covid-19 battle, Angad called it a ‘challenging time’ and shared that explaining to her daughter the reason behind his absence was the biggest challenge. He told  Hindustan Times in an interview:

“It was difficult to be away from them and be in two different places in the same city. Mehr is just two and a half, and she doesn’t understand why her father cannot come and see her. These are emotions that just break you.”

He also shared a heartwarming conversation with his daughter Mehr as he asked him why he was not meeting her.

“She doesn’t get it. There were a couple of times where she would ask, ‘Papa, why are you not coming to see me?’ I’d say that I’m not feeling too well, but the minute I said that, she’d be like, ‘But I’ve also been unwell in the past, and been with you’. Such innocent questions that a child always has... it was difficult for her and very difficult for me.”

However, Angad says that his time in isolation helped him to introspect and called it a ‘life-changing experience’.

The 38 year old actor, who is still feeling a “little weak” after his Covid battle urges all citizens to get vaccinated.
