Black Friday is the name given to the day after Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the onset of the Christmas shopping season. On Black Friday, the majority of retailers open at the wee hours and offer promotional sales to usher in the holiday shopping season. Americans queue in as early as 3am as on Black Friday they get expensive commodities at highly discounted rates. We asked TV actors what they would want to buy at a discount for which they would be willing to stand from 3am in the line for five hours or more….
Shubhangi Atre Poorey: I would like
to buy a whole range of Mac cosmetics and Q5 Audi ... my dream SUV
Aastha Chaudhary: Wish we have something like Black Friday
Shopping Day in India because a day that supports heavy discounts is just
awesome, being a crazy shopaholic I would love to buy everything I like
–dresses, bags, makeup, shoes and gadgets. However since it would be very
crowded everywhere so I'll prefer online shopping (if they have the same deals)
rather than dealing with long checkouts and hassle at the store.
Muskaan Mihani: I would be glad if this day is celebrated in India too. I would definitely go and buy a SUV car for myself.
Ashiesh Roy: If this day was celebrated in India, I would buy a whole lot of food, chocolates, clothes and shoes, and donate them to orphanages all over the city.
Krystle Dsouza: Right now I would stand in line to get a discount on a nice car like an Audi or BMW.
Rupal Patel: Books
Rithvik Dhanjani: I am crazy about clothes from Zara , I would like to buy the whole of Zara's look book collection even before it launched and that too at a discount, wahhaa…I am a Sindhi after all
Mahesh Shetty: A nice juicy ready to eat turkey and i-phone 5
Ranvijay Singh: Air Jordan shoes
Arti Puri: I can't stand in line to buy anything as I love online shopping.
