Accept it or not, wearing masks- face protectors, maintaining social distancing from people, staying indoors, avoiding gathering at public places, in short, not having a happening social life like before is the new normal in today's times - blame it on the Coronavirus pandemic. Well, flights have resumed operation after a long lockdown but with all the safety precautions. Among many others, Bigg Boss 13 fame Shefali Jariwala was the latest celebrity to board a flight amid the pandemic and her experience was quite a forgetful one, at least that's what her Instagram post hinted at. The Kaanta Laga girl sad how it was saddening to a happening airport like that of Mumbai so deserted.
The picture shared by Shefali Jariwala sees her clad in a face mask and protector. The next snaps see people maintaining distance while queuing and the Mumbai airport looking like never before. "One of the busiest airports in the world #mumbaiairport , never looked so deserted before...lifeless I can say... this has been such a saddening travel experience... no hugs, no kisses, no enthusiasm... only fear. I pray to god it all becomes normal soon... but then wondering , maybe this is the new normal.... and it’s time to accept it... hope not ! #airportdiaries #socialdistancing #coronapocalypse #besafe #sad #hopeful #travelgram," read her caption.
Further, in a conversation with HT, the actor admitted to sensing fear in the air and that she hopes to see the situation normalising soon.
Check out her post below:
"There were very few people, and to enter the airport itself, our temperatures were checked, we had to have the safe status on the Aarogya Setu app. There was social distancing everywhere, our IDs were checked from a distance, there were hand sanitisers everywhere. There was no taxi service available when we landed in Delhi. The sentiments were low, and it was depressing. The airport is always full of enthusiasm, but there wasn’t any. It should be better now, however,” said Shefali to the portal.
