Ravi Bhatia: I play the guitar as a form of mindful escapism


Mumbai, June 11 : Actor Ravi Bhatia, who is currently seen in the series "Shukla The Tiger", says lockdown has given him a chance to reconnect with his passion for music. He says music helps him unwind like nothing else. "I see playing the guitar as a form of mindful escapism, a way to create space between me and my mind. Guitar-playing is beneficial to your overall well-being and mental health in other ways, too, including helping one to develop a greater sense of personal achievement," the actor tells IANS. Ravi says with time he couldn't manage his schedule and had to step away from his passion for music for a while. "Since childhood, I used to love posing with Guitar. During my teenage years, it became a trend among friends to have jam sessions and play the guitar. That is when I learnt to play the guitar," he recalls. He adds: "But with professional commitments and a busy schedule I lost my interest. Now, we are mostly free during lockdown. I am practicing it daily for an hour. I am thoroughly enjoying it." The actor, known for featuring in television shows like "Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se" and "Ishq Subhan Allah", will next be seen in upcoming series "Margaon: The Closed File" which also stars Zeenat Aman. /IANS
