This Rakshabandhan, television actors talk about their sibling bond.
Neha Kaul: After my accident, I don’t think I would be able to go to Delhi and tie rakhi, so I have already sent them. This one year, I was shooting outdoors and I could not tie rakhi and I was missing my family. Just then my nani called and I started crying. I still remember that year clearly. I have 5 cousin brothers. They are all so hard working and loving. They have always taught me how to stay motivated in difficult times which is what keeps me going.
Ayush Anand: I am shooting this year for my show Perfect Pati. I am from Delhi and my family is in Delhi, however, this time I cannot take a break as the show is in the pre-production phase. Usually, we celebrate Rakhi in Delhi at my place. I don’t have a biological sister but having said that, I have many cousin sisters who are no less than a mother to me. Rakhi is extremely special to me because I genuinely feel a deep connection with all my sisters as I have grown up in their laps. I can share so many things with them which I can’t even share with my mother.
Geetanjali Singh’s Rakhi disaster!
Geetanjali Singh: It’s Rakshabandhan and I have made besan ladoo for my brother and got him a gift, but, I think will be out of town for my film promotions, so I’ll miss him. I can never forget when my brother tried to give me a nice haircut. It was such a disaster that my mother started crying once she saw me. It was the Raksha Bandhan day. The best thing about him is that he knows me more than I know about myself. I learned unconditional love from him and the kind of respect he gives to everyone especially women is remarkable. He treats my sister-in-law like a queen always. And I just love this quality about him.
Hetal Puniwala: I am very excited about Rakhi. This year, I am going to Surat to meet my sister for Rakhi and I want to give her a surprise. My sister is joyful and caring. She is an excellent cook and a great fashion designer. Her dressing sense is wonderful.
Pooja Banerjee loves her siblings!
Pooja Banerjee: I have two brothers and lots of cousin brothers. Rakhi is the day when it dawns me that I should be thankful towards my brothers, since they are ones who are always taken granted for. We never acknowledge the love that they silently keep showering on us sisters and of course in their own unique way.
Sneha Wagh: I have a younger sister and we don’t have a brother. When we were kids, she used to tie me rakhi.
