“My doctors told me not to go to a place where there is a lot of noise as it might affect the senses. I was also told that I shouldn’t go to a crowded place where I might get pushed,” says Hrithik. “These are valid concerns but I feel that nothing can harm you when you are giving love. I felt completely protected.”
Hrithik, who spent about an hour at the function, insists “when someone does something great for others, it’s always wonderful to be a part of it and contribute.” Apparently, the mandal that organised the Dahi Handi, which Hrithik visited, has donated part of the prize money to an NGO supporting tribal girls suffering from starvation.
“The euphoria was so overwhelming that I just went with the flow. The energy out there was incredible. And it was also for a social cause supporting tribal girls which is also why I chose to go. I can’t believe that I jumped and danced, even though I’m not allowed to right now,” says Hrithik.
