Swara Bhasker, who has been living in Mumbai alone with her five pets, travelled back home, after learning that her mother suffered a fracture. According to reports, the actress’ mother Ira Bhaskar, a professor, fell down and fractured her shoulder last week. Swara travelled 1400 kms by road to Delhi, with her fives pets and her cook, to take care of her mother, in the last two days.
Swara Bhasker had requested for special permission to travel amid the nationwide lockdown, as soon as she found out that her mother had suffered a serious injury. “I was very concerned when I learnt about my mother’s fall and the fracture to the right arm. My first impulse was to rush to Delhi….to look after my mom…but that was not possible due to the lockdown,” Swara said.

“So as soon as the process opened up, I applied for permission and travelled by road from Mumbai to Delhi. It was a very long journey, two days by road with an overnight halt. I had a safe journey albeit long and I’m very grateful to have been allowed to travel and to now be here with my mom.. if only to help her comb her hair and change clothes! I’ve gone through the necessary self-isolation and home quarantine protocols,” a report in Free Press Journal quoted the actress as saying.
Swara Travelled Two Days By Road
Swara reportedly stayed in Udaipur overnight after a 14-hour drive from Mumbai, and next day continued driving for 10 hours before reaching home in Delhi. Another report in TOI revealed that Swara had not informed her parents about the move.

“I didn’t tell my parents as I knew they’d be worried and so when I arrived in Delhi, they were both taken totally by surprise. I am so glad to be with them and be able to help my mom a bit. I’m useless in the kitchen but I help my mother to comb her hair and change clothes,” said the Veere Di Wedding actress.
