Shikha Malhotra, who was seen in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Fan, has joined a BMC-run hospital to assist doctors fighting coronavirus. She has a nursing degree from Delhi.
Bollywood’s contribution to coronavirus has been restricted to mostly home videos, urging fans to wash their hands or keep their health in check by exercising routinely. Yes, Akshay Kumar has made a generous donation of Rs 25 crore to the PM’s Care Fund and others are likely to follow suit. Yet one actress stands out from the rest – she has decided to fight against Covid-19 from the frontline.
Shikha Malhotra has gone above and beyond, donning the white coat she had left to pursue her acting career. Malhotra, who was seen in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Fan, joined the BMC-run Hinduhrudaysamrat Balasaheb Thackeray Trauma Centre in Mumbai’s Jogeshwari on Friday as a volunteer nurse. She has a degree in nursing from Delhi’s Vardhman Mahavir Medical College and Safdarjung Hospital.
