However, there are a few things that bothered Karanveer.
” No social distancing while seated in the flight… no food, just water on board, that too one needs to go the galley (so don’t press any bells),” he pointed out.
“Ove head cabins function, contrary to popular belief — soothing symphony music playing in the flight (something like titanic before it sank) — unrecoverable air hostess as they looked like doctors and nurses from an ICU,” Karanveer quipped.
The actor also thanked all the staff members for “taking care and doing their job so diligently”.
He also mentioned about the changes in exit.
“After the captain’s announcement on landing, that we will exit row wise, so ‘please remain seated’ no one got up — ok, except one uncle — who I scared by my triceps. By the way lots of flights (were) cancelled at both the airports (Delhi and Mumbai), so just please do a web check in before,” Karanveer shared.
“Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata” fame actor Rohan Mehra is also back with his family in Amritsar, and that too after six months.

He posted a few pictures on Instagram, showing how followed safety measures. He is seen wearing a mask under a face shield.
He shared a picture of his house too, on reaching home.
“Finally home… after 6 months,” he captioned the image.
