BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Ranchi Diaries actor Soundarya Sharma is currently stuck in USA amidst the global coornavirus pandemic. Since there are no operational flights, she has to stay back there.
She approached the Indian Embassy there and Ministry of External Affairs for assistance to evacuate them safely back to India. More than 400 Indians, including students, share a similar fate.
“These are challenging times for everyone, but my heart goes to hundreds of students including other fellow Indians who are stuck here, without proper accommodation and resources. I have been writing to the Indian Embassy and the Ministry of External Affairs for evacuation assistance however there has been no positive response nor any assistance to Indians who have been unable to meet their ends here,” she said, reports IANS.
In Los Angeles to attend an acting course at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, she could not get out in time. “I would humbly request the Indian Embassy and the MEA for a stimulus package for all those students and fellow Indians who are stuck here to help overcome this situation and hopefully arrange an evacuation flight back to India,” she said.
