The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill and many nations are trying their best to combat this virus. While the government has taken up strict measures to battle the deadly virus, many could be seen breaking the law. Several Bollywood celebrities are spreading awareness about security measures and they also highlight that if anyone is seen breaking the safety protocols strict punishment would be taken by officials.
However, Mission Mangal star Kirti Kulhari reportedly drove overnight to be with her parents.
In an interaction with Hindustan Times, she justified her actions and said that it was only when her sister - a doctor in the Indian Army - explained about the pandemic that she and her husband, Saahil Sehgal, understood the severity of the situation. In fact, that’s when Kulhari decided to travel overnight and be with her parents.
“My sister and brother-in-law are doctors posted in Chandigarh. We get a lot of information from them, but my husband and I didn’t take many things seriously. We were supposed to go to Chandigarh, but my sister stopped us,” said the actor, explaining how the reality hit her.
Kulhari’s sister is a pathologist and her brother-in-law is a pediatric anesthetist. The actor shares that while both are working continuously, they are following safety protocols. But the family is still worried. “My sister is shuffling between work and home, but my jiju goes to work every day. They’ve actually controlled the OPD (Out Patient Department) in the hospital to avoid crowding. They are planning out things well,” added Kulhari.
Meanwhile, amid quarantine Kirti is keeping herself occupied by exploring her culinary skills, and she plans to share her dishes on social media, too.
