On the occasion of Janmashtami, we asked the top Television actors about what the importance of Lord Krishna and Janmashtami in their lives.
I like to see decorated Jhakis on Janmashtami. The feeling of the festival is serene. I do have friends who are a firm believer of it. I like to go to Iskon temple no this occasion. I enjoy the prasad which is usually halwa on this day at Iskon temple. I like to hear dahi handi songs too.
I have never broke any matka but it will be exciting to try once. Hopefully one day I might get a chance. I have seen many breaking the dahi handi and its a tough job. It needs a lot of balance, practice and concentration. I have always been fond of Janmashtami as I am bhakt of Lord Krishna and have played Krishna in Suryaputra Karn and that really changed my life. I am at more peace with myself.
Dahi Handi is always fun. I have broken it a couple of times. I was like Kanahiya in my hometown Jaipur. I have been to Mathura too which is lord Krishna's birthplace. I have always liked to visit Krishna Temple. Lord Krishna has always intrigued me as a God. I would one day like to play Lord Krishna in a show or a film.
My family is an ardent follower of Lord Krishna. In fact, my mum has adopted Krishna as her own son and at home, he is taken care of just like a member of the family. I don't call myself a devotee but yes I definitely follow and observe this festival as he is considered family for us. The festival is celebrated lavishly at home with 56 kinds of Bhog and Krishna is dressed up in yellow. There is a cradle made for him with flowers and all day Bhajans are played for him. As a child I remember the excitement of the festival, I used to stay up till 12am for Janamashtami and once in a while we used to visit ISKCON temple in Delhi which used to be decked up so beautifully with flowers on this special day.
I got the offer of playing Lord Krishna recently in a TV show. This will be the first time I will be playing God and then the first time I will be seen clean shaven. Playing Lord Krishna and that too I will be seen during Janmashtami was a strong reason for me to take the role. I am Lord Krishna believer. I like his persona and aura.
