NEWS: Indian actor Mouni Roy has been stranded in the United Arab Emirates for over two months with just four days worth of clothing. This after she missed her chance to return to India before the lockdown was imposed. India’s domestic and international flights were suspended in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus leaving many people just like Roy away from home.
The ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ actor was scheduled to return to India in a couple of days post her work assignment to Abu Dhabi. In an interview with Mid-Day, the actor said, “After the shoot, I decided to stay back in Abu Dhabi for two weeks, as my next project was scheduled to kick off only on April 15.”
“I was possibly ignorant, but I didn’t imagine that the world will shut down. I have been stuck here with four days’ clothes.”
She added that she is staying with a childhood friend. Expressing concern over her family’s safety in Cooch Behar, the former model said, “I have been checking on them every day. I am relieved that my brother is by my mom’s side at this time. My cousins also live close by, that’s an added advantage.”
Although she is grateful that she has a roof over her head and is living with people who she can call family, she is yearning to return to India.
“I have been oscillating between anxiety and calmness. Everybody around the world is going through a hard time.”
“So, I sought solace in the fact that I have a roof over my head and a warm family, away from home. That said, I am eager to return to India.”
Most of us living away from family can resonate with what Mouni is feeling RN. We hope things normalise ASAP and everyone gets to be with their loved ones again.
