In a video posted on MG Motor India’s social handles, Benedict Cumberbatch spoke about how he’s been thinking about India. The actor has been observing social distancing and is staying indoors during the lockdown in the UK. He also spoke about separation being hard from families, elders, friends, and loved ones under these circumstances, especially given the conditions in India. But it’s important that we follow all the norms because we are all in this together. He further said that he is thinking about India and his fans here, and hopes to speak again during happier times.

With a few more days left for the 21-day lockdown to end, it’s important that we do not lose focus and continue to observe all the rules and step out only when necessary. Benedict is also doing the same and the video was made by him while staying indoors.


On the work front, the actor is gearing up to reprise his role as Dr. Steven Strange in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness for Marvel Studios. He will also play the character in Disney’s streaming service-based show WandaVision that will be a lead-in for the second installment of the Dr. Strange movie. Some of the other projects that Cumberbatch has been working on include Prisoner 760, The Power of the Dog, Ironbark and Louis Wain.  The actor was working on a couple of projects before the lockdown was imposed in the UK.
