Beating the heat

It's that time of the year again, when the temperature is soaring and people are going on a summer holiday. Tellywood stars are no different and many of them are preparing to head out with family and friends. Screen decided to catch with up a few of them and quiz them about their travel itinerary...

Anuj Saxena

Apart from the Mumbai heat, the need to take a break from back-breaking, 12-20 hour shifts, seems to be the main reason for TV stars to head out of town. Pooja Bedi says that a break is essential to recharge her batteries. Mukul Dev feels that after working non-stop for months, one needs to unwind and chill. Europe seems to be the most preferred destination for our TV stars. Pooja and her kids are planning to spend some time with Kabir Bedi in London and watch his new show The Far Pavilions. Mukul too has family and friends in Old Blighty' so he will halt there first. Apart from England, Scotland too is known for its historical sites that Mukul plans to visit next. According to him, there is one place there, where you are allowed to travel only by oxen.

Next step for Mukul and Pooja is continental Europe, while Mukul plans to enjoy the beaches of the south of France (Monaco, Niece etc), Pooja has her eyes set on beautiful Italy. Mukul says he will travel across Europe by road and rail, to awe at its scenic beauty. Pooja loves Italy, because of its rich culture and heritage. She wants her kids to see the different monuments (castles of Tuscany) and architectural wonders (The Piazza del Campo, a medieval square, Siena) of that land. Anuj Saxena loves to visit the Big Apple, for that city has so much to offer in terms of musical plays (Broadway), tourism (Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, Longest underwater vehicle tunnel in North America) and nightlife (Latin Quarter club). Apart from New York, the Kkusum star also likes San Francisco, an exotic city. The vibrancy at the casinos of Las Vegas left him stumped, people were gambling away till the wee hour of the morning. Kim Jagtiani would love to go the Lakshadweep Island to enjoy underwater sports, i.e diving, snorkeling etc. Mukul being an outdoor person would do the same at the different European beaches. Pooja will soon be off to river rafting in Rishikesh. Anuj reminisced about the good days, when Pahalgam and Gulmarg in Kashmir, were tourist hot stops.

When asked about Africa, Kim says she really wants to go on a Kenyan Safari and enjoy the wildlife. But she has a word of warning, when traveling around the dark continent, please make sure you are in a group, for many a times, solo tourists are mobbed and robbed.

Newly weds Varun Badola and Rajeshwari have just returned from a fun vacation, on the Gold coast of Australia, where they enjoyed the beaches, as well as the water sports. Pooja says although the best romantic place is in your lovers arms, she would recommend Mauritius for an ideal romantic getaway. Goa in India seems to be the most popular holiday jaunt; Pooja, Mukul and Rajeshwari, all often head to this former Portuguese colony, when they have a short break. Pooja's kids just love Goa. Apart from Goa, the Bedi family heads further south to God's own country, Kerala, for its famed backwaters, plantations and spices. Anuj loves to go for mountain climbing in the Himalayas. His dream is to climb the Grand Canyon (U.S.A.) Another reason why stars choose to holiday abroad is that they can travel freely without the fear of being mobbed by fans. But Pooja and Mukul say that that is not possible in some parts of England (Southhall Middlsex.) Pooja says vacation give you a chance to savior different kind of cuisines (Continental, Oceanic), she doesn't dig with people who say, we only like Indian food. Kim likes all types of cuisines, except having Lizards and sea food, in her Chinese soup.

Rajeshwari loves to go shopping on her vacations, first she buys stuff what she really wants, then comes, what is beautiful. However she is a smart shopper, who knows when to draw a line. Mukul has been given a big shopping list by his wife (she cannot accompany him this time due to a busy schedule). Pooja does not go shopping when she goes on relaxing vacations. Rather she prefers specific shopping trips to Dubai, and Paris, the fashion capital of the world, where she shops to her heart's satisfaction. After all, she needs new designer outfits for her hectic social and party life.
