It’s amazing to see how non dancers also bring out the best of their dancing potential during Navratri” – Srishty Rode

0

The festival of Navratri is all about colours, dandiya, garba, togetherness and positive vibes, and while the pandemic has restricted the physical celebrations this year, lots of memories from the vibrant festival are being remembered through tons of throwbacks!

Being an absolute dance lover, actress Srishty Rode is missing Navratri celebrations quite a lot! Srishty is missing dressing up and going to all the dandiya and garba events around the city, which she would thoroughly enjoy to the fullest!

Speaking about her cherished Navratri memories, Srishty shares,”Navratri is such a fun and vibrant festival and one which has always brought with it amazing vibes every single year. Navratri radiates positivity, lots of light, love and togetherness among people, and while celebrations are going to be at a halt this year, the spirit is still very much alive. I am someone who loves dancing and in the past have attended a lot of dandiya and garba nights with my friends, which I am sadly going to miss attending this year. I just love observing how people get into the spirit of dancing so whole heartedly and with full zest while playing dandiya and garba! It’s amazing to see how non dancers also bring out the best of their dancing potential during Navratri, because of their love and passion for the festival which is beautiful to watch! I am also missing dressing up in that typical traditional attire when going for these events, as that was something I really enjoyed doing, and pray and hope that next year gives us all the chance to celebrate Navratri in full spirit.”

We will be shooting across Lucknow, including at heritage structures like palaces and colleges,” informs director Milap Zaveri, who is all praise for the Uttar Pradesh government. “Some of the live locations will be completely sealed off, so crowd gazers cannot sneak in.

      ‘I WAS BULLIED A LOT AS A KID’ – ACTOR TARUN KHANNA

      0

      Mumbai, 19th October, 2020:

      Bullying is one of the worst things that could happen to any child. It destroys their confidence, makes them afraid all the time, and overall makes their lives miserable. However, there are a few who faced such hardships bravely while growing up and are showing the bullies who’s boss! One such actor is Tarun Khanna currently seen as Lord Shiva on Dangal TV’s Devi Adi Parashakti.

      Not many know that Tarun was bullied as a child but eventually overcame the experience, instead became stronger and rose to an amazing height in his career. The actor mentions, “I had to face a lot of bullying as a child. While growing up, I was very weak and always mocked at by peers for falling ill frequently. However, this never stopped me from focusing on the problem I had. I decided to become fit and stronger. I made a resolution that I will work hard & value my physical & mental fitness.”

      Tarun is often called as television’s Lord Shiva as he’s portrayed the character for more than 7 times. The actor adds, “Playing Lord Shiva requires adequate physique and mental firmness. One needs to be disciplined & poised in real life to get into the skin of Mahadev. Nothing should affect my positivity and I achieved this through yoga and just 30-45 minutes of exercising every day. I can in fact say that playing such a divine character has always helped me.”

      Well, Tarun’s success story shows that nothing stops an individual from being the amazing person one is meant to be.
