Lockdown 1 was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in March. We are now in lockdown 3 and it is likely to extend further. The number of patients testing positive for the novel coronavirus is not going down and in order to flatten the curve, the government may introduce stricter laws and measures in the next lockdown announcement. Many people are stranded away from home and Uttaran fame Tina Datta is one of them. The Daayan actress was visiting her friends, Aashka Goradia and Brent Goble who are in Goa. She revealed how lockdown was suddenly introduced and hence she got stuck there. Also Read – Best Dressed: Surbhi Jyoti, Aditi Bhatia’s summer style statements are noteworthy
“Since January, every month, I attend Aashka and Brent’s yoga workshop. I had come here on March 13 or 14 and was supposed to return on March 22. But by then, the situation across India had worsened. My parent called me and asked me to come to Kolkata. But, I didn’t want to put their lives at risk, as we live in a joint family and going there would have been risky for my grandmother, uncle and father. So, I decided to stay here as Aashu (Aashka Goradia) treats me like a sister,” Tina told IndiaToday.in.

She is very caring. We even share the same birthday. Even our natures are quite similar, which is why we connect easily. Whenever I miss my family, she motivates me and sometimes even gets me chocolates to lift my mood. I am lucky to be with her during the lockdown.” Also Read – Saumya Tandon, Tina Datta, Shubhangi Atre – TV actresses who love the rainy season
