Aashka Goradia said, “Holi for me is not just a festival of colours but it goes beyond that. It is the time where we must let bygones be bygones and embrace each other with love and compassion. It is the season of spreading smiles. Also I would like to urge all my fans who will be playing Holi to be a little considerate and to not waste water. Let us conserve water and play a safe and dry Holi.”

Aashka Goradia

Disha Vakani who plays Daya Jethalal Gada said, “This year too like every year I will be playing Holi with eco friendly colours. I will be making lots of sweets and special snacks. So this year I will be celebrating Holi in my own special way.”

Disha Vakani

Supriya Pilgaonkar aka Ishwari of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi says, “Holi is all about an array of colours and water and personally I’m very fond of the festival as it is said Holi takes away all the negative energy. As a Maharashtrian there are special dishes prepared at my home such as Puran Poli, Katachi Aamti, Phirni and many more which adds to the excitement of this colourful festival. This year on Holi, my family and I will play a dry Holi. As a message to all my fans have a happy and safe Holi and avoid playing with water. Remember the best colours you can apply on someone are the colours of laughter and love..!!”

Shaheer Sheikh aka Dev of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi says, “When I was a kid, me and my friends used to go to the terrace with water balloons. We used to wait for the people to come on the street so that we can throw balloons at them. This year I don’t have anything special planned for Holi because I usually do not play it. Till now, I have celebrated this festival only on sets, so probably this year also I will be playing with colours only while shooting.”

Shaheer Sheikh

Nikita Dutta aka Suman of Ek Duje Ke Vaaste said, “I am very fond of colours and holi is one such festival where you get to play with colours. I have some extremely fond memories of Holi, back as a kid it was all about behaving like it’s a war, being a sniper while targeting people with water balloons and water shooters! As of now, I am really hoping for an off on Holi as a break from the hectic schedule. Will make sure I’ll cheat a bit and treat myself to some gujiyas. Wishing all my fans a colourful and safe Holi…!”

Nikita Dutta

Namik Paul aka Shravan of Ek Duje Ke Vaaste said, “My best Holi was last year as I celebrated it first time after 15 years and it was awesome! For me Holi is that special occasion which you enjoy with your friends the most, so I’m going to be with the same group of people as last year. But the childhood memory of the festival which I have is our whole lane having one big Holi celebration, where all the adults and kids would be jumping into each other’s homes and ninja attacking people with colours. This was followed by exchanging gifts in the evening.”

Namik Paul

Gautami Kapoor aka Simran Gupta of Parvarrish Season 2 said, “Holi is a festival of colours which brings people of all cast, creed and culture together to spread happiness and joy. However, my humble request is that kindly be aware of the water crises and let’s be conscious and not waste water!! Instead let’s work towards conserving water and celebrate Holi this year with dry and eco-friendly colours. A message to all my fans: Wishing you all a Happy and Safe Holi.”

Gautami Kapoor

Vinay Jain aka Raj Gupta of Parvarrish Season 2 said, “Holi is one festival I really look forward to especially the frenzied dancing part. It is worth all the body pain one has to deal with for the next few days!”

Every year I and my friends, gather at my place and kick start the celebration by splashing colours and water balloons on each other. However, this year I have promised myself that I will not waste water and instead play Holi with organic colours only. I wish everybody a happy and safe Holi! Also try to save water and play Holi only with organic Colours..!”

Ishant Bhanushali

Mugdha Chaphekar who plays Anisha in Sahib, Biwi Aur Boss said, “I don’t celebrate Holi. Since childhood, I didn’t like the wastage of water that happens during the festival. However, knowingly unknowingly, I am happy I never wasted water as now water shortage has become a serious problem. I have played Holi only for the camera for my shows as it was unavoidable. But yes, I do love to eat Puranpoli which is a speciality in Maharashtra. I like to celebrate Holi by eating sweets and knowing the importance of the festival. I would want to request each and every one that please play dry Holi and don’t waste even a drop of water. This step might save a lot of lives.”
