The gorgeous Shama Sikander was supposed to get hitched to beau James Milliron in September. They got engaged in 2016 after dating for a year. She told The Times Of India, "We had planned a destination wedding in September-end and almost everything, including the venue, was finalised. We were all set to zero in on a date when the pandemic hit. Both our families had started preparing for the big day. James’ family doesn’t travel and so, his parents don’t even have a passport. We had asked them to initiate the paperwork and get their passports made. However, the plan is on hold for now, as I don’t think it will be safe to travel around that time."
As of now, they have put thoughts about the wedding on the backburner. She says that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed their outlook towards life. Shama told the paper, "Also, COVID-19 has changed our ideas about everything in life. We are just trying to help those around us to get through this tough time. And, that has definitely brought more joy to us. The wedding will happen whenever it has to."
James Milliron, a businessman deals in Internet marketing. He offers solutions in various sectors like retail and tech. His parents are in the US and the couple are worried for them. Shama said, "James is with me in Mumbai, and his parents are alone there. We are worried about them, as they are old and his father was unwell around four months ago. We are constantly in touch with them."
The actress says she has started meditating more during this lockdown and is glad to have him by her side. "It can take a toll on you emotionally. I am glad that James is with me during this crisis. Besides spending quality time with each other, I am also learning to adapt to a different and a new way of life," she concluded.
