How will these Bollywood, TV actors celebrate HoliMarch 10th, 2009 - 7:20 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 10 (IANS) Even though superstar Amitabh Bachchan is not celebrating Holi in remembrance of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack victims, most TV and film celebrities plan to enjoy the festival of colours with their family and friends.
While some actors like Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan and Salman Khan are busy working on their projects, many feel the festival has given them a much-needed break.
Neha Dhupia: I will be celebrating Holi in Goa with my friends and family. This is the second time that I will be enjoying the festival at my house in Goa.
Sanjay Suri: I have always liked playing Holi, but this time it will be a close family affair because my son is very young. He is just about two years old and I don’t want that he gets hurt in any way. So we will just use some dry colours this year - nothing more than that.
Divya Dutta: As of now I am shooting in Rajasthan. Holi here is a big festival and is celebrated with fervour. So for me, it will be Holi in Rajasthani style this year.
Purab Kohli: I am playing Holi at my friend’s place with a few friends and then I have a flight to catch to Dubai in the afternoon. I believe in playing a safe Holi and only play with Gulaal and clean water.
Anjana Sukhani: I have a Holi appearance at the Country Club in Mumbai. From there I will head to the Zoom Holi party where the entire “Jashn” team will be. “Jashn” is my film with the Bhatts and will celebrate Holi with them and my family there.
Ronit Roy: I will be doing puja and then shooting throughout the day. I have to shoot if my audience need to be entertained. I have been doing this for the last eight years now, so it’s like a routine.
Hiten Tejwani: If something nice is happening in my building, then we will celebrate Holi there. Otherwise we will be going to some friends’ place. I prefer playing Holi with natural colours or Gulaal and not pucca (dark) colours because I am an actor and need to use colours that come off easily.
Sudha Chandran: I don’t play Holi but it’s a holiday and a welcome break for me which I will use to chill out. I don’t generally get offs so this holiday will be good.
Panchi Bora: I am scared to play Holi but I believe in celebrating the festival with god. That’s why I will do puja and apply some colour just for the occasion.
