Here’s how our much loved tv actor Pankit Thakker who is famous for his holi escapades from his popular show Dill Mill Gayye feels about the colorful festival.
As a kid, I was majorly into Holi. I’ve had real fun during Holi all the years that I was growing up… I’ve had my share of Holis on and off-screen too ! During my teenage, we had grand celebrations that lasted from the morning till the evening with people from our entire building coming together to celebrate the occasion and dancing on Rang Barse from Silsila sung by Amitabh Bachchan (a song written by his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan).
Holi has been very memorable all through the years, and Dill Mill Gayye made it even more special.
Over a period of time, Holi has become too messy. These days I attend the festival once in a while, I don’t actually play with colours but I like applying a bit of colour as a shagun.
I feel people tend to go overboard with the Holi celebrations, the way it is played these days. I would only urge people to keep a safe distance from others and make sure that they don’t invade others’ spaces – and enjoy and make sure that the colors they use are organic !
Wishing everyone a very happy and fun-filled Holi !
