Actress Shikha Malhotra, who worked with Sanjay Mishra in "Kaanchli Life in a Slough", is currently working as a volunteer at a hospital in Mumbai to fight against coronavirus. Her work was being appreciated by the country however, the film fraternity was quite about the same. And voila! Actress Katrina Kaif took to her social media handle to praise her selfless efforts and called her a 'real life hero.' It was definitely a cherry on the top moment for Shikha for whom her tiredness vanished as soon as she came to know about the same.
Katrina in her Insta story shared a picture of Shikha and tagged her along with the caption, "Shikha Malhotra is a real hero." Shikha revealed that when she returned home tired from her long duty and checked her phone, she saw the tag of Katrina and read her message and completely forgot her tiredness. She immediately thanked her and said that it was an emotional moment for her because appreciation from the film fraternity has always been a matter of pride for me.
Have a look at Katrina's post here:
