With travel restrictions in Mumbai being eased and domestic air services having resumed, many TV celebrities are headed to their hometowns to be with their families.

Among those arriving in Delhi from Mumbai is TV actor Karanveer Mehra. After reaching his home in the National Capital Region (NCR), Karanveer shared his experience of boarding a flight amidst the health scare.

"Mumbai airport had thermal screening and a self declaration of good health on the Indigo app. Arogya Setu app is a must, which should say you are in good health. Self boarding passes from kiosks, 7kg-hand baggage to be carried in the craft, 8 and above to be checked it, proper social distancing, followed even while waiting for the flight and while boarding (with) 5-6 feet gap maintained. PPE kits given by staff at boarding gates (shield and cloves)," he wrote.

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.

"Over 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.

Taking to social media, Rohan shared that he did not fly back by a direct flight. From Mumbai, he had to fly in to Delhi first and then he boarded another flight to Amritsar from Delhi.
