Shikha Singh, who was last seen in Naagin 6, has been posting about her health issues on social media. The actress revealed that she has been unwell for some time now. When we reached out to Shikha, she said, “It has been a tough phase since the past two months because I have been mostly in bed unable to do anything. Two months ago, I had developed a skin allergy and was diagnosed with an auto-immune condition due to which the doctor put me on medication. But within a day or two, I started getting a lot of acid reflux. The doctors advised another round of tests, but nothing was diagnosed and I was told there is nothing wrong. However, I am unable to eat anything except khichdi or light food.”

Shikha recovered a bit last month and decided to take a short break. She added, “I felt slightly better, so on my birthday on February 7, we went for a holiday to Nairobi. Unfortunately, I fell sick there and had to be hospitalised. Ever since we returned back home, I have been resting. My husband Karan (Shah) is a pilot, so he has to keep travelling.”

She admits that her health issues have affected her mental state. She said, “I feel helpless because doctors can’t figure out what is causing the acid reflux and why I can’t eat regular food. Earlier, I did not want to post about my health issues, but when you live in a big city and feel lonely at home, you want people to reach out to you. My daughter Alayna comes to me everyday and asks, ‘Mumma kya hua hai?’ I see her face and feel so bad. I want to get well soon. I think many people are going through health issues post pandemic and we have to love and support each other.”

Sharing how an actor’s life is not as perfect as it seems on social media, she added, “On social media, an actor only posts about the good life. It is not all about the glitz, glamour and beautiful holidays, we also go through tough times. I wanted people to know about his situation in my life. I hope that the medication works and I recover soon and am able to get back to my regular life.”
