stay home & .... finish a book 📖😇

A post shared by Alia ☀️ (@aliaabhatt) on

While it is not known what book she was reading, the paperback was open on a chapter that read 'The Indefinable Nitin Sawhney.'

Alia is not the only star who is reading books while in a self-imposed isolation to combat the dreaded COVID-19 . Kareena Kapoor Khan, who debuted on Instagram earlier this month, posted an image of her husband Saif Ali Khan sitting in their cozy study and reading a book.

From Twinkle Khanna sharing how she and Akshay Kumar are utilising the time at home by spending it with the family to Katrina Kaif posting about learning home workouts, stars have taken different routes to stave off boredom.

Shooting for Alia’s next film Gangubai Kathiawadi has been stopped due to the coronavirus outbreak. She has a number of projects lined up for the year, including Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra opposite Ranbir Kapoor.

Known to be an avid reader, the actor has shared images of her book collection on Instagram in the past.
