The lockdown has created numerous challenges but one of the most notable ones have been the travel restrictions. Many have not been able to return to their homes, since the start of the lockdown on March 25. While youngsters can manage somehow, some of the elderly persons find it hard to deal with the situation.
Kabir Sadanand recently shared that his mother, who is 83 years old, was stuck in Secunderabad. The actor, who has acted in films like Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, Chameli and directed films like Fugly, stated that his mother has been in isolation for 35 days and moreover, she had injured herself now. He tagged Mumbai Police to help him travel to his mother’s place and bring her with him to Mumbai.
He added that his father was a soldier and had fought three wars for the country, even winning the presidential award. The actor-filmmaker also stated that the website to apply for permission was not accepting documents. Kabir tweeted his concerns thrice, first on April 29, but the pleas have gone unanswered.
