Shefali Shah and filmmaker husband Vipul Shah stepped out of their Andheri home to buy groceries and essentials. The Delhi Crime actor shared her experience on social media.

"Every single store had a line which was as big as the one outside Siddhivinayak. So we found a smaller store that had a line as big as the one outside Babulnath temple. I stood in the line maintaining a seven-feet distance. The man behind me had no interest in keeping a distance. I told him to back off. He kept arguing. Finally, I scared him saying that you could get it from me if I have it (sic)." Bet that worked.

Andheri K ward where we stay is the 2nd highest covid positive area in Bombay. It’s under a complete lockdown. Only on Monday between 9am to 5pm we can go out and buy groceries, vegetables, fruit, bread, eggs and essentials. The necessities. That's exactly what we did today. Vipul drove me and we went with our masks and gloves and sanitizer to look for stuff. Every single store had a line which was as big as the line outside siddhivinayak. So we found a smaller store that had a line as big as the one outside babulnath temple. I Stood in the line maintaining a minimum of 7ft distance. He stayed in the car (no need for 2 of us to be out). The man behind me had no interest in keeping afar and was standing lesser than 5 feet away. I told him to back off but to no avail. I did a namaste and begged him to move behind. He kept arguing god knows about what. Finally I Scared him saying that you could get it from me if I have it. That worked. I stood outside the store gave our order and bags and got groceries, fruits and vegetables whatever was necessary for us and for my parents. Which we dropped off outside their building on our way back home. The highlight of today were two special things I got. Shrikhand (for us and my parents) and mehendi cones(for mom and me (she loves to put mehendi.) It was easily the most fruitful journey of togetherness of our lives. (After the time we went for my deliveries.) #LifeInTheTimesOfCorona #OneDayAtaTime #LoveinTheTimesOfCorona #CoronaDiaries #LivingWithCOVID19 #Mumbai #Essential
