Coronavirus outbreak: Stranded in UK, Mahika Sharma feels 'lonely and caged'
The actor is best known for her roles in TV shows such as FIR and Ramayan: Sabke Jeevan Ka Aadhar
Actor Mahika Sharma has been in self-quarantine all alone in the United Kingdom following the coronavirus outbreak that has led to nationwide lockdowns all over the world.
"Even if India is in a 21-day lockdown, the air and the environment in the country pamper everyone of us. It feels good to be surrounded by your own people. It keeps you relaxed and boosts energy. However, in a foreign country, it is extremely disturbing. You feel very weird and uncomfortable," Mahika said, opening up on how she is coping all alone in an alien country in the time of crisis."I feel awkward about returning to India because people will not like coming close to me. They will think I'm carrying the virus. I'm not able to understand what is happening all around. I feel lonely and caged," added the actor, best known for her roles in TV shows such as FIR and Ramayan: Sabke Jeevan Ka Aadhar.
On her biggest problem with staying all by herself in London, Mahika revealed, "I'm really fond of Indian food but here I need to rely on salads, fruits, and juices, and I'm badly missing home food."
The former Miss Teen Northeast added, "These days are a nightmare and it is not a good feeling. I'm sacred. However, I am healthy, although reading and hearing about the virus constantly is disturbing me."
Mahika said she is trusting in her faith to get her through this. "I'm chanting mantras and offering prayers from the Internet in the hope that things will change soon."
