Festivals are a doorway to happiness which are celebrated in unison regardless of the caste, creed, community. The joyous festival of Navratri has arrived. Navratri is a festival of the Goddess Nav Durga, which is celebrated by serving the goddesses for 9 days with love in the house and seeking blessings for a brighter future. It is also celebrated with the traditional dance form of the festival known as 'Garba and Dandiya'. On this auspicious festival we got in touch with a few of celebs of the television industry to share their way of celebrating this festival.
Here is what they have to say…
Sumona Chakravarti- Every year my family and I go to pandals for Darshan and have bhog which is been offered to Ma
Durga. This year too I'll be with my family from the 20th to 24th. I feel that these four days will pass so quickly.
Also, I'm very excited as I will be
appearing for a Dandiya event in Rajkot on 19th.
Rupali Ganguly- Like always this year also I'll celebrate Durga Puja with my family & close friends. We will go Pandal hopping & eat some really delicious sweets.
Aamir Ali Malik- I am traveling to a couple of cities with my wife Sanjeeda for Navratri. I like the fun and celebration which happens during the festive season. I am glad to be traveling and performing as well.
Rishika Mihani- Every year I fast for nine
days. In short I become a 'fruitarian'. As a ritual I pray twice a day and will also
be going out with friends to play Garba. This year I have bought two
Chaniya Cholis and traditional jewelery to go with it too.
Aamna Shariff -Navratris are the best 9 days of a year. Since it is a festival of
colors, celebrations, God and galore.. I like this festival a lot. There are
lights and decorations all over. Everything is so soothing & divine. Like
every year, this year too I'm traveling
to different cities to perform Danidiya -
Raas and Garba.
Madhura Naik: Navratri for me is all about dancing in circles, letting my hair down, wearing Indian ghagra choli and yes totally forgot, if some guys try to act sleazy, I don't forget to hit them with the Dandiyas in the hand pretending you lost control while dancing (laughs).
Prinal Oberoi: I am shooting in Gujarat this Navratri. Undoubtedly as we all know Navratri in Gujarat is awesomely celebrated. Too excited (smiles).
