Work keeps TV actors away from Janmashtami
Mumbai: Be it any festival, small screen actors hardly get time to celebrate it with their family and friends, because of a hectic schedule. Janmashtami, being celebrated Wednesday, will also see actresses Esha Kansara and Shrenu Parikh spending time facing camera.
Esha, who plays Kittu in 'Ek Nanad Ki Khushiyon Ki Chaabi...Meri Bhabhi', said: Being a Gujarati, Janmashtami is a grand festival for me. Also I was born on this day, so I always celebrate the festival with my family. But this time due to my hectic work schedule, I won't be able to go to my hometown.
Shrenu, seen as Astha in 'Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon...Ek Baar Phir', said: In my city (Vadodara) on Janmashtami we all fast. The best part is that people play 'teenpatti'. Earlier, I didn't get to play and now I don't get time to play. This Janmashtami, I will be shooting and, therefore, may not be able to participate in the rituals that will be performed at home.
Meanwhile, Kanchi Kaul, seen as Shraddha in '...Meri Bhabhi', is hoping to take time out to enjoy her favourite festival.
"When I was in college, breaking 'dahi handi' was awesome. Going out on the streets, breaking the 'handi' with my friends and even falling down from the pyramid was the fun part. It is one of my favourite festivals and even this year if I get some free time from my shooting schedule. I will make it a point to go and watch the 'dahi handi' festival with my friends," she said.
Devoleena Bhattacharjee is also a follower of Lord Krishna and follows his teachings in real life too.
Seen as Gopi Bahu in 'Saath Nibhaana Saathiya', she celebrates Janmashtami with gusto.
"I am Lord Krishna's biggest bhakt (devotee) and follow his teachings in real life as well. Just like Krishna loves makkhan (butter) and mishri (crystal sugar), I too enjoy it. Besides, I love singing to hymns while performing the puja and I love the Janamashtami celebrations around the city," she said in a statement.
