Question: How are you going to celebrate Holi this year?

Answer: This year, I have a shift one night before Holi. As I am hosting an award function so, I would be probably waking up very late on the day of Holi.

After that, in the evening, I will celebrate a little ceremonial Holi with my little baby because I want to introduce him to Holi and tell him the concept of the festival. However, he is already playing with water guns and water-filled balloons, so he knows something about the festival.

So, I am going to spend time with my baby only in the one little evening that I have with him.

Answer: I remember, on every Holi, my mother used to make Kanji drink (It is a probiotic drink made from black carrots). Along with that, she also used to make Hare Chane ki Barfi (Green Chickpea Barfi) and Gujiya.

On this occasion, people from our whole colony used to come to meet us and celebrate the festival. But I was very afraid of Holi, to an extent that I used to hide in my room as I didn't like to play with colours.

I have played Holi once in my entire life. But yes, I will always cherish these memories.

Question: What is your favourite Holi dish?

Answer: I love Hare Chane Ki Barfi (Green Chickpea Barfi) which my mother makes. It is very delicious and one of my favourite Holi dishes.

Question: Which is your favourite Holi song?

Answer: My favourite Holi song is 'Rang Barse Bhige Chunar Wali' from Amitabh Bachchan's film Silsila. I think this song is iconic and evergreen. Also, it imbibes the whole spirit of Holi be it the masti (fun) or the love for the festival.
