Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor describes the lockdown phase of last year as one of her crucial phases for self-realisation. It was a period when she could learn to unlearn and redefine the value of zero, she said.

"I think every time we start a film, we start from zero, from 'shunya'. Lockdown was a time for me to understand the value of several things, including self-love, the family and my emotional and spiritual health. I also think that it made me more independent, and things like the power of yoga to develop a focussed mind so that I can choose to be a part of any project film or entrepreneurial venture more fearlessly," Shraddha told.

"As an actress, being a part of show business, we have to look in a certain way and that changes also with every film that we do, every character I play. Recently I invested in a beverage project in which I really do not have to count my calories while having my favourite drinks. In a way, during lockdown, I have understood and redefined the value of 'shunya', and now I know the brand of product or even brand of cinema I would like to associate myself with. It is a learning that has happened through last year," she added.

Shraddha has been around in Bollywood for around a decade, and she has faced success, failure, praise and criticism. Her debut film 'Teen Patti' fared below expectation, her third film 'Aashiqui 2' was a musical superhit, followed by 'Ek Villain'. She has tried dance and action in various films including 'ABCD 2', 'Baaghi', 'Street Dancer 3D', and 'Saaho'.
