Bigg Boss 13 contestant and actor Shefali Jariwala has revealed the difficult times she and her husband Parag saw over the past week after his father dies in Ghaziabad on May 25. Her father-in-law was not keeping well and had a heart attack on May 25.

Speaking with Times of India, Shefali said, “It was an extremely stressful time but fortunately the flights had just resumed and we managed to get one out of Mumbai on the 26th and could make it in time for his last rites.” She added the rituals were performed with “just with immediate family for everyone’s safety” because of the coronavirus pandemic. Parag’s elder brother could not make it for the last rites of his father as he lives in Australia and international flights are not operational.

I pray to god it all becomes normal soon... but then wondering , maybe this is the new normal.... and it’s time to accept it ... hope not ! #airportdiaries #socialdistancing #coronapocalypse #besafe #sad #hopeful #travelgram.”
