Actress Aanushka Ramesh Who has done a Punjabi film titled Canada Di Flight is currently doing her debut Hindi film titled Mangal Ho. The film stars Sanjay Mishra, Anu Kapoor, Vrijesh Hirjee and Mukesh Bhatt. The film is being directed by Prithwish Chakraborty who is also playing the male lead in the film. Navratri is a time for being spiritual, taking time off to be with family and friends, and having a blast. And the beautiful actress Aanushka Ramesh is planning to do just that. When asked what was the best thing she liked about navratri, Aanushka got nostalgic and said,
“Navratri has always been a special festival for us. Being a Punjabi, it’s one of the most awaited festivals, as we strongly believe in Mata. My mom would fast for Navratri and during the last day, we would have a small Pooja where little kids were invited and small ritual was done. After that yummy Prasad was distributed. I still remember the halwa that was made then. It was the tastiest I’ve ever had. As kids, we would play play dandiya and garba in our society and I remember it would be super exciting. I would look forward to it every year. I loved the idea of playing dandiya where you keep moving in a circle and playing with people, some of whom might be complete strangers !”
So, does the pretty Punjabi lass will go out during navratri this year too?
“I will be celebrating navratri in Mumbai itself. Now we don’t really play dandiya, but it’s all about the spirit of the festival and the energy. But if I do, I plan to dance on the song Dhol Baje from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. I think it’s the perfect Navratri song with its high energy and amazing beats!”
Well, we hope you have a splendid time this navratri, Aanushka!
