“Sankrati also brings with it some delicious winter sweets such as ’til ke laddu’, revadi, peanut and sev chapda, and Kheech (a dessert made from milk and boiled wheat). These sweets taste best in this weather and have health benefits too. As I am in Mumbai now, my mom has already sent me my treat. I just love to eat mom’s handmade food,” he provides.
The actor reveals how kite-flying helped him professionally.
He says: “It’s that time of the year again when we all can shout and say, ‘Kai Po Che!’ Especially only a game we can enjoy easily maintaining social distancing and other Covid-19 protocols. I enjoy those breezy winter mornings with clear skies that remind us of one of the fondest memories of our childhood and that is flying kites. I never knew the game would help me in my profession too.
“Kite-flying made performing simpler for me because it wanted a lot of confidence, focus and ability to do two issues collectively. Similarly as an actor it has made it simpler for me to behave whereas delivering dialogues. With Makar Sankranti round, it’s time to rekindle these recollections and bond with mates, household and to not overlook the meals.”
