Shikha served as a nurse and not charged even a penny for it, just to give her service to the needy in the Balasaheb Thackeray Hospital. According to a report in Navbharat times, Shikha is a Bsc (Hons) in nursing. The actress after the pandemic broke in the country applied in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Cooper Hospital and Balasaheb Thackeray Hospital who welcomed her to serve.
Talking about the situation, she had said, “It did not strike me initially when the Prime Minister gave a call for Janata Curfew. It was only after the PM announced the 21-day lockdown to contain the virus, that I realised the enormity of the situation. I realised everything is not normal when the country was going for 21-days of lockdown. That means, patients will keep coming and there will be a shortage of nurses at hospitals.”
