It's hard to find someone who belongs to Delhi and isn't proud of it. Singer Akriti Kakar is no exception. The artiste, known for hits such as Saturday Saturday (Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya, 2014) and Iski Uski (2 States), says she is a Delhiite at heart. "I am from Rajinder Nagar and had to shift to Mumbai for work but I just love Delhi and I'm a pure Dilliwaali at heart. Whenever I am in the Capital, visiting places like Khan Market, Dilli Haat, Rajouri Garden with my school friends is a must," says Akriti.

"I love to pick up handicrafts and other things from cottage industries and for that, I think Delhi Haat is just the right place. Also, the food one gets from various states across India is amazing," says the 28-year-old. Akriti adds, "My extended family members also live in Delhi, so it's always good to be back to the place where I spent my childhood."
