The lockdown phase was difficult for every human being as it felt like we all are being caged inside our homes, which we actually were! Being alone at home during the lockdown was mentally taxing and got the best of so many of us. There were days of frustration, isolation and anxiety, and we all needed someone to guide us and hold on to us. While people living with their families had all the support, there were people living away from their family as well.

Actor and VJ, Anusha Dandekar was one of them, who was locked inside her home alone. In fact, all this had even led to the rumours of her breakup with her long-time boyfriend, Karan Kundra. However, the two later on clarified that they are still very much together. Well, during the testing times, it was Anusha’s elder sister, Shibani Dandekar and her boyfriend, Farhan Akhtar, who ensured that she is hale and hearty.
During the lockdown, Shibani and Farhan were often spotted delivering groceries to Anusha outside her home and chatting with her from their car. All the social distance parameters were considered while taking care of their baby sister. Anusha took to her Instagram handle on June 24, 2020, to thank Shibani and Farhan for taking care of her during the lockdown. Anusha talked about how the couple helped her during the testing times and wrote, “Shibani, I cannot thank F (Farhan) and You enough for the last 3 months, every single day checking to see if I’ve eaten or I need anything, bringing me groceries every 3 days (yes grapes and Coke Zero count hehe) bringing me snacks just to cheer me up... checking to see if the babies needed food. Never letting me go out and always saying you will go instead, even for the smallest things.”
She further added how her elder sister, Shibani turned into a mother for her during the past three months. She wrote, “You turned from big sister to Muma. And in your own tough love way made sure I was only thinking ahead after finding out everything. You protected me and gave me love and strength beyond. I wasn’t alone or stuck because of the two of you and I’m forever grateful to both of you for every single day... every single day! And also the many FaceTime calls, where you both gave me live performances, made my heart happy! Love you both from the bottom of my soul! Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!”
Adding more details in her note, Anusha also thanked her little sister, Apeksha. She added, “Apeksha, Thank you for being my greatest listener and advisor and for letting me call and tell you everything I’m feeling at all times. (Shibani would call it Aaji time hehe) Thankyou for encouraging me to sing and sing my truth! And working with me and all your patience. You gave me so much confidence and you turned from little sister to the best life coach and vocal coach all in one! I love you from the bottom of my soul, Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou. #sistersforlife.” (Also Read: Samantha Akkineni Takes A Journey Down The Memory Lane And Shares A Childhood Picture)
