Amid the lockdown and Coronavirus crisis, the celebration of Indian festival Akshay Tritya was largely subdued. The occasion is typically observed by purchasing some gold, as it is considered auspicious. However, ‘Ramayana’ actress Mahika Sharma found a new way to mark the occasion. As she is stuck in UK due to lockdown, she decided to help some people back home. She adopted two families from the streets of Mumbai, who do not have shelter and access to medical care during this crisis.

Speaking about the same, the F.I.R actress said, “Buying gold or jewellery has been a ritual from years to celebrate Akshaya Tritiya. But this year with the time and scenario around, I have tried helping the people in need. I’m stuck in London, but I got to know from my acquaintances, that two families in Mumbai are badly affected and are in need of shelter, medical treatment. After getting the facts verified, I decided to take care of these families for a year.” The television actress has arranged for accommodation in the city, funds for their medical treatment and food for the coming year.

The former beauty Queen ‘Miss Teen Northeast’ will be next seen in a Bollywood movie along with adult film star Danny D, who is set to make his debut on the silver screen soon.

We hope that Mahika is safe and sound and is able to soon return back to her home in India after the lockdown gets over.
