Popular faces from the television industry spill the beans about their favourite holi memories and how they are celebrating the festival of colours this year
Avika Gor aka Roli of 'Sasuraal Simar Ka': Holi is the time to reach out to people not just with artificial colors but also with the colors of joy and affection. It is the time to express positivity and happiness through different colours.
Dipika Samson aka Simar of 'Sasuraal Simar Ka': We follow the traditional way of celebrating Holi at home by lighting the Holika a day prior to other rituals. The next day is grand celebrations followed by a family lunch so I’m really excited to be with family and meet all my cousins after really long. To all my fans - have a happy and a safe Holi.
Kavita Kaushik aka Chandramukhi Chautala from 'FIR': Holi is one festival that has to be celebrated with gusto. I have been the most rowdiest amongst all my friends and family while playing Holi. I would chase people and throw them in tanks filled with colored water. I believe this is the only festival where people can forget all their animosities and grudges & become friends again.
Ali Asgar aka Juju from 'Jeannie Aur Juju': Most of us actors are busy all the time and rarely get leisure time to spend with our families. Holi is one occasion where I always stay at home with my family and spend time meeting friends and other extended family members and exchange pleasantries.
Shefali Sharma aka Bani of 'Bani - Ishq Da Kalma': Holi is one of the most special festivals in my life. It signifies love and affection towards loved ones and that is the message that I wish to spread to my fans and viewers as well. I hope everyone has a Holi which is filled with happy moments and colourful memories which they will be able to cherish forever.
Neha Bagga aka Rajji of 'Bani - Ishq Da Kalma': This Holi I wish my viewers and their family members all the bright hues of life. Life is full of colors. May this Holi festival everyone adds more colors in their lives, and enjoy them at the brightest shade.
Adhvik Mahajan aka Soham of 'Bani - Ishq Da Kalma': Holi has traditionally been celebrated in high spirit without any distinction of cast, creed, color or race. It is one occasion when sprinkling colored powder ('gulal') or colored water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination. Wishing everyone a very Happy Holi.
Gaurav Chaudhary aka Parmeet of 'Bani - Ishq Da Kalma': The festival of Holi can be regarded as a celebration of the colors of unity and brotherhood - an opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in pure fun. I have numerous memories of celebrating Holi with my family and friends back home in Delhi. Luckily, I have found a wonderful family here on sets of Bani as well and I look forward celebrate with them this year. Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Holi.
Manish Raisinghani aka Siddhant of 'Sasuraal Simar Ka': Holi has always been a special festival for me and I have so many fun-filled memories associated with it. For me it is a symbol of love and togetherness. As always, this year too I plan to keep it safe and enjoy without harming anyone. Here's wishing everyone happy and safe holi.
Rajesh Kumar aka Dara Koyla from 'Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh': Holi reminds me of my Delhi university days. My friends would always be busy planning the entire celebration weeks before the festival. One fear that always gripped me was that the exams would happen around the same time and falling sick was not an option. Nevertheless, I always had immense fun playing Holi with all my friends every year.
Dheeraj Dhoopar aka Prem of 'Sasuraal Simar Ka': I am not a Holi person but I land up playing with eco/herbal colours and would advise everyone the same. Have a fun day with all your loved ones, Happy Holi.
