Television actress, Shrenu Parikh, who is known for her portrayal in serial, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? was in USA, when the outbreak of coronavirus happened. The actress came back and like a responsible citizen, post her screening at the airport, she went self-quarantined at home. The actress recently revealed that BMC has been calling her every day to check, whether she is showing any symptoms or not.
In a chat with PinkVilla, Shrenu said, "Firstly, I came back to Mumbai just in time thinking or assuming something like a lockdown will happen as my brother works in airlines and he knew the situation. All airlines started cancelling their flights one after the other, at the airport, we were checked and asked not to step out of the house for at least 14 days. We were told that the symptoms may not show immediately, so we had to stay home. So, I came back home to my house in Mumbai and have been indoors ever since. My parents reside in Gujarat wanted me to come home but I wanted to keep them safe too."
The 30-year-old actress further added, "So I am here, following self home quarantine rules. Not meeting people and washing my hands frequently. Sterilizing the door and gas knobs with disinfectant tissues every 3 hours and eating lots of homemade remedial items. I get a call from the BMC officials everyday asking how am I and what are my symptoms. It is quite scary as I don't know what will happen. I am half way through my quarantine period but can’t enjoy this time as I am in constant pressure thinking “what if....”Friends and people say enjoy this time and watch tv but that’s not true... when you know the symptoms can kick in anytime. All I am happy about is I’ve been responsible and at least, I’ve done my bit by taking care of others."
