Kareena Kapoor Khan: I stopped playing Holi since my grandfather (Raj Kapoor) died.
Arjun Kapoor: I never play Holi as I am allergic to colours available in the market. However, I remember the one time I was invited for a Holi party to Amitabh Bachchan's house. I went in wearing formal clothes — a white shirt, jeans and a new pair of shoes — thinking that it's going to be a formal event with only a teeka being applied on my forehead. But the moment I entered, Sikander (Kher) and Abhishek dumped me in a pool of mud.

Sushant Singh Rajput: I have very fond memories of Holi. My mother use to prepare so many delicacies and I used to play dirty Holi with my friends without getting scared of spoiling my clothes. In those days Holi was how happiness would look like, it was amazing, it still is.
The trio tells us what each colour means to them
Kareena: Jai Hind, Jai Maharashtra
Kareena: Falling sick
Arjun: Forest and nature
Kareena: Like me...hot
Arjun: School house colour
Sushant: Sun, power
Kareena: Black makes me look thin, green makes you look fat. I love black
Sushant: Reminds me of my dozens of black shirts and T-Shirts
