Soundarya Sharma, who's currently studying acting in LA, is stuck there because of the coronavirus outbreak and cannot step out of her apartment.
When we spoke to the actress, told us that she is unable to come back home, and her flights have been cancelled thrice, without any refund.
"We are in a state of lockdown. I go out early morning to get my groceries, but the stores are a few miles away. They're also mostly empty, and even basics like potatoes, salt, lentils etc aren’t available. I don’t even have a mask as it's out of stock and not even available online. I've also seen people fighting over toilet paper and sanitisers. I can’t even travel back home because of travel restrictions, and already, three of my flights have been cancelled without refund. My parents are extremely worried for me," she rues.
Soundarya's troubles, however, aren't limited to the lockdown.
She shares, "I rented an apartment here, obviously on contract, and now I need to vacate it. I don’t know where to go in such a situation. Though I have requested the owner to take note of the current situation, he has further bookings and moreover, people here are very practical."
She urges people to listen to experts and the government, who are doing an amazing job during such a troubling time.
Talking about how she's dealing with the situation, Soundarya tells us, "I'm trying to keep myself engaged in this house-arrest situation. I’m using the time to rejuvenate myself, read, watch movies and cook. I hope that things come back to normalcy soon. I’m praying that we come out of this, and for that I urge everyone to listen to experts and the government, who are doing an amazing job during such a troubling time."
