The 'Musafir' actress spoke about how the second wave has been affecting kids and shared that even if they're asymptomatic, they should still isolate themselves.

"This is the time to be smart and focus on what helps . Not negative . Not fearful . Just be alert to protect yourself and others. We have to be mindful of this . It is the only way . I will continue to make my happy content because positivity is my biggest strength right now Stay strong . Stay safe," Sameera concluded.
