Actor Madhuri Dixit and her family returned to Mumbai on Monday after holidaying in the Maldives amid rising Covid-19 cases back home. On Sunday, she had shared a video after snorkelling session in the tropical nation.
Madhuri and her husband, Dr Shriram Nene, left for the island destination, shortly after it was reported that 18 crew members on the dance reality show Dance Deewane, on which Madhuri appears as one of the judges, had tested positive for Covid-19.
In an Instagram video on Sunday, the actor said that she had recently returned from a snorkelling session, and had a ‘mask face’ because of the marks that her gear had left on her face. She said, “I hope everybody in Mumbai is doing well. Stay safe, sanitise, do not meet to many people, wear your masks… and, you know, do well.”
Madhuri also posted pictures of her ‘cheat meal’, which included a pizza, a burger, and a side of fries. “Sunday mood,” she wrote on the post, shared on Instagram Stories.
Madhuri has been sharing regular updates from the Maldives. Over the weekend, she took in the ‘magnificence of mother nature’ as she posed for a photo. Previously, she’d shared pictures of a romantic candlelit dinner with Dr Nene, and of her speedboat ride.
