Her family is in Pune and she shares how her parents worried a lot about her while she was recovering in Mumbai.
She says, “I live alone in Mumbai, my parents keep visiting me regularly from Pune, so I have never felt lonely. I tested positive almost a month back and I was happy that I was in Mumbai and not in Pune. I battled it out all alone. Thankfully, I have great neighbours and friends, who regularly kept checking on me and sent me homemade food. I was feeling so weak that I was sleeping most of the time. I did not make a social media post because I did not feel the need. I find a lot of negativity on social media and so kept away from it while I was recovering from the virus.”
Vahbiz feels that living alone makes you stronger. She says, “I have a good set of friends but at the end of the day, when you have faced tough times, you learn to face life’s battles. The pandemic has been tough for all and I have not stepped out of my home at all.”
Vahbiz’s brother and grandmother who is 88 years old, were also infected in Pune. “They are fine now. I am proud of my grandmother who fought it and has recovered totally,” she says. Vahbiz was last seen in the TV show Bahu Hamari Rajnikant.
