Be it making gujiya, attending Holi bashes, or celebrating it with kids, these television actors are planning to enjoy the festival in full glory

Vahbiz Dorabjee: Holi reminds actor Vahbiz Dorabjee of colours and happiness. “I never make any specific plans as there is already so much celebration around you. I might attend some Holi bashes with my family this year,” she says.

Shashank Vyas: Work is keeping actor Shashank Vyas busy this year. “I won’t be playing Holi this year. But I love sweets, so I will make sure I relish some today. I remember my best Holi was the time I had bhang in school. I slept for two days straight, obviously that was the last time I had bhang,” he laughs.

Arjun Bijlani: This Holi is extra special for Arjun for this is his first Holi with his son. “This Holi is my son Ayaan’s first Holi, so my wife Neha and I are very excited. We will not play with water or any dangerous colours. Holi reminds me of sweets, and I love eating sweets which I will have to refrain from this time, because I am on a diet,” he says.

Rashami Desai: Rashami, who is currently shooting abroad, says that she is missing the celebrations back home. “I am shooting in Indonesia. I am missing all the colours and celebration, especially the gujiyas made by my mom. I still remember how we would celebrate Holi as kids and throw water on each other. I miss those days,” she says.
