Rajesh Khattar’s wife Vandana Sajnani reveals they have used all their savings during the COVID; says, ‘Bahut dhakka laga hai’
Amidst the Covid-19 induced lockdown everyone’s finances were severely hit. The actor couple, Rajesh Khattar and Vandana Sajnani recently opened up about the hard times they have been facing amidst the pandemic. Over the last couple of years, from struggling to find proper medical treatment for their family to paying for the hospitalization, the couple has gone through a lot. And the lack of work during the pandemic has only added to their woes.
Speaking to Quint, Vandana revealed that last year during the lockdown she was handling her newborn son and dealing with postpartum depression. “Last time, I was in the hospital, I really didn’t know what was happening out there. I had a postpartum depression in May last year, when the lockdown was at its peak. In fact, from then till now it’s been only hospitalisations,” said the Dil Dhadakne Do actress.
She further continued, “Here we’re talking of loads of savings, as actors… loads of savings gone down only in hospitalisations for the whole of last year. Kaam bilkul nahi hua, aur jitni savings thi almost woh bhi hospitalisations mein aur iss do saal ke lockdown mein chali gayi (there was no work, and almost all our savings were used up during these two years of lockdown and hospitalisations). Iss baar bahut dhakka laga hai (We’ve suffered this time).”
Apart from their son being admitted to the ICU for a few months soon after his birth, Rajesh and his father were also hospitalised recently. When Rajesh’s father passed away, the actor had to directly go from the hospital to perform the last rites. The actress also shared that since her son’s birth, she has only worked in one ad.
Rajesh is Ishaan Khatter’s father. He lost his father on April 18. Rajesh welcomed his first child with his wife Vandana after 11 years of marriage. The couple experienced several failed pregnancies and surrogacies before welcoming their child into the world.
