Rakhi is a festival celebrated all over India. Falaq Naaz too is excited to celebrate with her brother Sheezan Khan. She talks about her plans.
“He is my younger brother, and our bond is very strong. We are very close with each other. I always say my mom is my backbone and Sheezan is my heart. I believe a good bond with siblings is a must. They are the ones with whom you can fight, cry, and share everything. And the best thing about him is that he is a very good listener, won’t judge you, tries to help you by finding a solution, and also never leaves anyone’s side. Our common areas of interest are music and travelling,” she says.
Talking about Raksha Bandhan this year, she adds,
“Just like every year, we will tie rakhi to our brothers, and I have been telling Sheezan to bring me something good as a gift (laughs) and then just spend a fun, peaceful day with them. I have one memory that I remember, once I got so busy on Raksha Bandhan that I didn’t have time to tie a rakhi, and Sheezan was waiting the whole day for me. So he got very upset because I came home late, and then I tied him a rakhi. But now I make sure to keep my time for them and celebrate it with them only.”
Falaq truly believes that life is all about loving your family.
“I think without family, the individual has no base. No matter how many friends you have or wherever you go, your family will understand you the way no one else can,” she says.
The actor shares a friendly relationship with her mother.
“She has always been very supportive, and I think that’s why we’re here. All I can talk about this journey is because of my mom. So the mother-daughter bond that we share is a bond of friendship, and that is very beautiful. If your best friend becomes your mother, then the meaning of life would be so beautiful. I have that level of bond with my mom, and I share everything with her. Whenever Sheezan or I face anything, both of us ultimately go to her and share it with her, and even today we take permission from her before we go out somewhere or whenever we plan to buy something expensive. I think it’s very important. For all the children to understand that if your parents are inside the house, then take permission from them. They are important to us and must be given importance too. That’s what I believe in, and that’s what I follow,” she ends.
