Bollywood singer Neeti Mohan had jetted off to Australia with her family for a fun trip but soon it took an ugly turn due to the outbreak of Coronavirus. They had to rush back and Neeti describes it as the scariest experience of her life.
Neeti was accompanied by her husband Nihaar Pandya and sisters Mukti and Shakti Mohan. They all had to rush back to India before the lockdown began.
Recalling her experience Neeti told Hindustan Times, “It was just the onset [of the pandemic], but the numbers suddenly increased. When we heard that actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, who were also in Australia, had contracted coronavirus, it was alarming. They were shooting in the same country, and I got an anxiety attack thinking if someone of that league can get it, we might also get affected. Our parents also called us and asked us to return immediately.”
Neeti was supposed to be returning from the trip on 17 March but had to rush back on 12 March itself via Singapore and Dubai. She said that experience was scary as these were highly affected areas. “When we reached the airport to board our flight, it was all deserted. When we landed, there were very few people and we got through the immigration process very quickly, with proper check-ups,” she shared.
The singer is currently in self-isolation with her family in their farmhouse in Pune. The family plans to stay in Pune until April 14, when the nationwide lockdown is scheduled to be lifted.
