Kirti Kulhari who is currently in Chandigarh with her parents recalled how she rushed to be with them when she understood the gravity of the situation. In an interview, the 34-year-old actor shared that only after her sister, who is a doctor in the Indian Army told her about the severity of the pandemic.
Kirti revealed that her sister and brother-in-law are both doctors and in the beginning, they didn't take many things seriously. In fact, when Kirti and her husband were planning to visit her parents in Chandigarh, her sister stopped them.
