Keerti Nagpure: I have a younger brother who lives in Pune with my parents, and I am really close to him. As I am the elder one, and currently working, I am the one who gets a gift for him. Bhai Dooj is the special time when we both stop fighting and spend some quality time with each other. (As told to Kavita Awaasthi)

Disha Vakani: For me, every day is Bhai Dooj. This year, we are going out of town; the trip will be a surprise for my brother, Mayur. I remember the first gift I gave him — two packets of shaving foam. He was thrilled to receive it. This year, I will gift him T-shirts, a cap and a watch. He is very fond of those things.

Shruti Seth: I have fond memories of celebrating Bhai Dooj with all my cousins during my childhood. All the sisters used to gather and perform the tilak ceremony together and receive lots of presents. As we grew up, all my cousins moved to different cities, so it’s just me and my brother Rishabh celebrating the festival now. This year, we will be celebrating Bhai Dooj at my parents’ house, and I will make sure I extract money from him. (As told to Kavita Awaasthi)

Archana Puran Singh: My younger brother, Sandeep, stays in Dehradun. He is my closest sibling. As a kid, he would strongly protest the brother-sister festivals as they involved brothers giving money to sisters. I remember he would sulk, wouldn’t let us do the puja and always ask, ‘Why do I have to always give her money? Why don’t the girls give their brothers money?’ As I was always protective of my baby bro, I would do away with the Rakhi and Bhai Dooj rituals, just to see him smile. (As told to Kavita Awaasthi)

Stars from small screen open up about their plans for Bhai Dooj and share their fondest memories of the festival. Sangeeta Ghosh: For us, Bhai Dooj is such as a very big festival, just like Raksha Bandhan. As kids, we would wait for the festival because we were greedy for gifts. Now I miss spending time with my brother on the day. Since he is settled in Kuwait, we make sure that we chat via Skype and send gifts to each other.(As told to Kavita Awaasthi)
