Isha, what unique things do you see during this year*s Navratri?
Everywhere I am seeing happy faces, which is a clear sign of end of all the stress and also a Covid free Navratri this year. That, according to me, is the most unique thing that I am seeing during this year*s Navratri?

Are you more of a dandiya person or garba?
Garba definitely! I love how it brings everyone together. I also love dandiya.

Have you ever got hurt while playing Dandiya with sticks?
Yes, many a times. But, it*s a fun experience…so I don*t mind it at all.

Have you learnt dandiya / garba from someone? Or you learnt it seeing others?
Dandiya is quite contagious. Once you see it and the steps get to you, it*s quite easy to pick up and practice with everyone.

Which is your all-time favorite dandiya song from Bollywood?
‘Dholida*
is my ultimate favorite. It really captures the essence of the festival.

Do you follow the colour code for all the nine days?
I try to as much as possible. Everyone uniting in the colors is a sight to see. I simply love the tradition.

What*s your take on accessories? Are you a minimal person or you prefer a ‘quintessential* Navratri make up?
Navratri is all about the accessories. So, I spare nothing (smiles). As for the makeup, I make sure to take it light.
