Television actors reveals their plans for Christmas

Television actors reveals their plans for Christmas

Bijal Joshi from ‘Ladies Special’

“I have plans to celebrate Christmas this year with under-privileged kids. I will spend the day with them and be there Santa and give them gifts, chocolates and study materials like books, pens etc. This year Christmas is more special for me because my new show ‘Ladies Special’ is  going good and getting immense love from the audience. One of my fond memories of Christmas is that once I had dressed up like Santa and met few kids and danced with them. It was one of the best Christmas celebrations of my life.”

Sneha Wagh from ‘Chandragupta Maurya’

“This year I am shooting far away from Mumbai in Umargaon for my show Chandragupta Maurya. I will be celebrating Christmas onset with my cast.  I have lots of fond memories of Christmas. I have done my schooling from a convent school and there every year in Christmas someone would dress-up like Santa and comed to wish us. We used to sing Christmas songs and celebrate on a large scale. Even this year in Mumbai my friends are hosting Christmas party but due to my work schedule I won’t be able to make it. I am enjoying the chilled weather of Umargaon.”

Abeer Soofi from ‘Mere Sai’

“ Festivals have always been more about partying with friends and family. Since I’ve been working on this show, “Mere Sai”, there are no party plans due to my busy schedule. So, this year I will be celebrating with my co-stars from “Mere Sai” Drisha, Rakshit and Karishma and make everyone’s day special on the sets. I remember this one incident where one of my friends wanted to propose a Christian girl and for that he desperately waited for Christmas as he thought that would be the best day to propose her. And we planned a plot for him to propose this girl but my friend got beaten up by the girl badly. And that was the best Christmas memory I ever had. We tease our friend till date about this funny incident.”

Neelu Vaghela from ‘Main Maayke Chali Jaungi Tum Dekhate Rahiyo’

“After passing out from school, we never really celebrated Christmas but the best part of Christmas is seeing my children happy and excited for it. I dress up as a Santa for my kids, buy them gifts and keep them under their pillow. They somewhat in their heart know that the real person behind this masked Santa is me, but still get excited about it every time. So, my Christmas every year is all about my kids’ happiness and their excitement and joy for the festival.”

Paridhi Sharma from ‘Patiala Babes’

“The year is about to end and here comes the festive season again. Christmas and New Year is round the corner. With Christmas, comes home the Christmas cakes and gifts from friends and family. I’m excited to buy little caps and red and white dress for my son and see my little boy dress up as a Santa.”

Namish Taneja from Main Maayke Chali Jaungi Tum Dekhate Rahiyo

“Thinking of Christmas, I always remember my friends as since my school days, we have been partying every Christmas. I remember Choreographing for my college fests for the Christmas functions and those days were full of fun. But now the time has changed and we all are busy with work and hence Christmas will be all about work this year.”

Mohit Malhotra a.k.a Akarsh Sharma from Daayan

“My Christmas wish is for everyone to be blessed abundantly, especially those who are in need of blessings in the form of good health of mind and body, blessings for youth in terms of success with maybe their jobs or studies, and for the less fortunate. For myself, I would only wish for my new show Daayan to receive lots of love and good wishes. If I had a chance, I’d be a secret Santa for my brother Himanshu Malhotra who’s also an actor and I will gift him the new Sony alpha 7 since he has started this new initiative share and grow to help people around with his YouTube Channel. So, it would be very useful to capture his talks and lessons that he imparts. My favourite Christmas memory as a kid was playing secret Santa with my family where my parents would bring all the gifts and they were hidden in house and we had to find them so me and brother would compete to find the biggest gift wrapped and claim the right on it, I miss that the most!”

Tinaa Dattaa a.k.a Jhanvi Morya of Daayan

“I believe my gift from Santa came in quite early this year. I began shooting for my show Daayan just before Christmas ended and I think that’s the best gift I could have got on this occasion. With the onset of the new year I hope the show does tremendously well with viewers in the coming year. Although I don’t celebrate Christmas now, I have some priceless memories of celebrating it as a kid. I used to always play Mother Mary’s character in plays organized on Christmas. It was the one day I would look forward to because we went back home taking many goodies from my teachers who would dress as Santa. If I had the chance to be a secret Santa to someone, it would most probably be my dearest friend Ishita Ganguly. I share a close bong bond with her and the best gift I could gift her as Santa would be a delicious homemade ‘Macher Jhol’. It’s a mutual favourite and nothing makes the day better than indulging in authentic Bengali food in Mumbai.”

Yukti Kapoor a.k.a Agni from Agnifera

“My only wish is to get ample of holidays from my busy schedule of shoots for my show Agnifera, so that I can travel the world. I miss traveling, learning new culture, meeting new people that is something that makes me the happiest. As a kid I was a total Santa believer and I would think that the story of Santa leaving you gifts stuffed in stockings were true, so I would keep socks outside my door but to my disappointment would wake to nothing but those socks lying outside my door. When my parents saw how sad I was they got me something special and ever since then this became a tradition every year of receiving gifts from my parents like a little girl (laughs). If I had a chance of being a secret Santa to someone it would definitely be for my friend Madirakshi, and I would gift her a kitten as she loves pets.”

Karan Godwani a.k.a Kishan from Agnifera

“My Christmas wish from Santa this year is nothing to do with materialistic things. It’s more of a spiritual gift. .and that’s happiness, peace and harmony for me and all my loved ones. If I had a chance to be a secret Santa for someone in the industry I think it wouldn’t be for just one person but for all my actor friends. I would gift them all something small and pretty depending on their likes, because this season is all about love and giving. My fondest memories of Christmas have definitely been as a kid when we would get all excited to celebrate the festival in school. With carol singing, the lights and the crib everything was so beautiful and everyone would be at their happiest best”

Ishita Ganguly a.k.a Rani Padmini from Vikram Betaal Ki Rahasya Gaatha

“Santa has been very kind to me this year and it has been a fruitful journey for me. If I have to wish for something then I would wish to be a part of good projects and work with great people from the industry. I wish that I get to learn new things in the coming year. I also wish that I keep my family happy and laughing always. During my childhood, my father would become our secret Santa. He would quietly keep the gifts under the Christmas tree and I would wake up in the morning and be all excited to run open what he has gifted me. But at that age, I really believed that Santa existed but only at the age of 11 I realised it was my DAD. If had to be someone’s secret Santa then it would first be my mother and I would like to gift her temple jewellery. And if it has to be from the industry it would be two of my very close friends Tina Dutta and Sreejita De. I would like to gift Tina a cool funky bag that she would be able to carry with her everywhere she goes and for Sreejita, I would like to gift her a pretty dress for her petite frame.”

Shubhangi Atre a.k.a Angoori Bhabhi Ghar Par Hain

“Christmas has always been a special festival for me since childhood and all the memories that I have are related to me celebrating it in school with friends and teachers. As a kid I honestly believed that Santa existed and since my parents knew about this faith of mine, they would always get me a small gift and say it was from Santa. Surely those are the fond memories of my childhood celebration of this festivity. If I had a chance to be someone’s secret Santa, I would love to plan surprises for a few unfortunate orphanage kids. It’s something I usually do during Diwali and would like to extend that gesture on Christmas as well. 2018 has been a tremendously wonderful year and my only wish from Santa would be to keep the surprises and love coming in abundance. I wish that the success that I have received on the professional front keeps growing and people keep loving Angoori bhabhi as the year passes by.”

Sheban Azim from Tujhse Hai Raabta

 Most of the time, I have always been with my friends on Christmas. Usually, there used to be an event in our neighbourhood where my friends and I would celebrate. When I was in school, only Christians used to celebrate Christmas but nowadays everyone celebrates it. This is the time when we have family gatherings or get-togethers. I remember decorating a Christmas tree in school time. We used to make a group and decide that who will gift what to whom.

Reem Shaikh from Tujhse Hai Raabta

My fondest Christmas memories would be going to Mount Mary church almost every Christmas on the 24th of December. That is a very sweet memory.

Poorva Gokhale from Tujhse Hai Raabta

 My fondest memories of Christmas are from school. I am from a convent school and there used to be a huge Christmas celebration. The preparations used to start a week before and we would help everyone decorate the school and even the church used to be decorated. 25th December used to be holiday but on 24th there used to be this Christmas celebration where we used to have a special program. We sang Christmas carols and had a lot of fun.

Rajeshwari Datta from Tujhse Hai Raabta

I have a lot of Christmas memories. I celebrate Christmas every year but the ones I celebrated in school were amazing. I studied in a convent school and the atmosphere during Christmas is very different. I still remember that time. We used to decorate the Christmas tree then we used to perform Christmas carols, which used to be so much fun.  We used to even light candles at church and then we used to have dance performances.

Priya Shinde from Tujhse Hai Raabta

Last year's Christmas was the best Christmas for me and my family as we went to Lonavala. We stayed in a bungalow where we played many games, chess, carom and pool. We enjoyed a lot there. 

Anuj Khurana from Tujhse Hai Raabta

I remember that when we were kids, my sister and I used to put socks at night and when we used to wake up, we used to get those socks full of candies, chocolates and everything which we used to like. That tradition is still going on, still my sister keeps a sock on the 24th. Let my mom be with her or not and my mom makes sure that she gives goodies to her on the 25th of December. So, my mom is our Santa Claus.
