Shikha Malhotra has worked in several films such as Fan and Running Shaadi. Shikha is a qualified nursing officer and volunteered her services during the pandemic for seven months before getting the virus herself. During her time as a frontline warrior, the actress took care of many coronavirus patients. Recognising her services, she has been awarded with Vagdhara Nav Ratna Samman by Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari at a recent ceremony in Mumbai.
Expressing her joy, Shikha said, “I am very grateful to the Vagdhara Judicial Selection Committee, who has made me proud with this honour. Along with being an actress, I had a higher education in nursing. It was my privilege to do something for the country during the time of the global epidemic. I want to thank my parents and fans.”
