The lockdown brings out the reflective side in Lillete Dubey

With a career spanning over two decades, Lillete Dubey has firmly established herself as one of the finest thespians and artistes in the country. And, today, for the first time in her career, like many others, the actor finds herself in a state of pause, and a much needed one. “One of the great revelations for me,” she says, “is that all these days I have been a social dinosaur. I have always believed that your work is your calling card. But at the same time, now I have also realised the importance of professional and personal, need to communicate with people.”

Dubey has utilised this time to pursue a more reflective way of living. “I am not on social media, so I haven’t been venting out my feelings on an individual level,” Says the most effective Exotic Marigold Hotel actor, adding that a good deal of people are doing this, which is fair enough. “I am not making any judgements. But I found that people went two ways, either they went inwards, a little reflective, and loved and enjoyed and valued the time that they got with themselves. And many went outwards, to connect with people. I went the former way, and the only time I went out was for an digital event to support theatre where I was joined by Ira (Dubey; daughter),” concludes the actor.

Although the actor affirms the fact that people will hesitate to get back to the theatres, she feels that OTT might only be a feasible option for many. “Maybe, we are entering an era were digital is going to become far more important, though I will never believe that we’ll replace theatre and films, they should co-exist. Human interaction is a very important part in being human,” says the Lunchbox actor.
