         Happy Dussehra                  
 

Dussehra or Vijayadashami the festival is celebrated throughout the country and the underlying tradition and mode of celebration vary vastly by region. However, all festivities celebrate the victory of the forces of Good over Evil. While in the East, people have the traditional Durga Puja, up north people commemorate the victory of Lord Rama over the demon Ravana. The day is considered as an auspicious day to begin new ventures in life.

In memory of Lord Ramas victory, people burn Ravana effigies, where in huge melas or fetes are organized. The Ramlila - an abridged dramatization of the Ramayana - is enacted with much public fervor. 

 

On this day of Victory of Truth ,we asked some of the television actors about their plans for this Dussehra....

Amrapali Gupta:

Character you like the most from Ramayan:
I like Hanumanji's character the most.

If given a chance, which character you would want to portray on screen from Ramayan and why:
I would love to play Sita. The main reason is that she is wife of Lord Ram and secondly Hanumanji is her big devotee.

Your plans for Dussehra this year:
I will be shooting all day, so no great plans this year. But, maybe after the shoot I'll visit the mandir with my brother and then we will go out for dinner.

 
 

Siddharth Shukla:

Character you like the most from Ramayan:
Ram is my favorite character in Ramayan.

If given a chance, which character you would want to portray on screen from Ramayan and why:
I would love to play Hanuman because he has lots to do.

Your plans for Dussehra this year:
I don't know whether I'm shooting tomorrow or not. If not, then there will be a puja at my place and after that will go and play dandiya in my colony.
 

 

Sukriti Khandpal:

Character you like the most from Ramayan:
My favorite character from Ramayan is Hanuman.

If given a chance, which character you would want to portray on screen from Ramayan and why:
I would love to play the character of Sita as she is a dedicated wife and very pretty.

Your plans for Dussehra this year:
I have just returned from Kolkata and am planning to have a small get together at my place.

 
 

Yuvraj Malhotra:

Character you like the most from Ramayan:
Ram is my favorite.

If given a chance, which character you would want to portray on screen from Ramayan and why:
I would love to play Ramji, but I will never take my wife to the jungle for 14 years and will never keep her away from me.

Your plans for Dussehra this year:
I will bring an effigy of Ravana and burn it on the sets... (laughs). Playing the lead in the show leaves me with very little time for myself. So I will have a working Dussehra this year.

 
 

Shaleen Bhanot:

Character you like the most from Ramayan: 
I love Ram as my very close friend Gurmeet Chaudhury plays Ram in NDTV Imagine's Ramayan.

If given a chance, which character you would want to portray on screen from Ramayan and why:
I will not play any character because I think to play such a character we need to be so pure and in this Kalyug no one is so pure to play such a role. Each and every character in Ramayan is very difficult to play and has a lot of responsibilities. 

Your plans for Dussehra this year: 
It's going to be a working day for me. But I have been performing puja daily for all these 9 days and have been observing a fast too.  

 
Happy Dussehra to all the Readers of Tellybuzz!
