The situation out there is bad. Whenever my parents call me, I get scared what would be the news. I hope this covid battle ends super soon and please take care, everyone."
Recently, Nikki gave a reply to a user who had taken a dig at her for calling out celebs vacationing and sharing pictures from exotic locales in the middle of a pandemic. The user had shared some pictures of Nikki being spotted at the airport and having her coffee indirectly labelling her as a hypocrite. However, Nikki Tamboli shut down the user by stating that she had gone for her shoot and not for a holiday, unlike some other celebs.
