On Lohri, celebs go down memory lane and recollect fond memories of the festival


Lohri is here, bringing with it joy and hope. The turn of season is celebrated by different names — Bihu, Makar Sankranti and Pongal—in different parts of the country, all signifying the harvest season and to be grateful to bountiful earth. Here are celebs sharing some fond memories, and how they are celebrating Lohri in 2022.

Family time

Lohri always meant family time for me, but, of course, once you start working you miss these things. Lohri always brings back memories of Chandigarh. All my relatives would gather together, we would dance all night and gorge on some yummy delicacies. This festival is all about positivity. This year I will be celebrating in Mumbai. —Angad Hasija, Actor

Happy vibes

I miss Kolkata during this time of the year. Lohri means happiness and prosperity to me. Since I tested positive for Covid and am still recovering from it, I will be celebrating it with my wife Ripci and my furry baby Leo. A small celebration of just the three of us because we are still in isolation. —Sharad Malhotra, Actor

Low-key affair

Makar Sankranti will mostly be low-key this year, just like the past two years. Although it is such an important festival, I will avoid going over or inviting people to my house this time. My fondest memory of this festival is when my entire family would sit together around a bonfire and celebrate for long. —Geetanjali Tikekar, Actress

Positive note

My fondest memories from childhood include flying kites with my friends and having til ke laddoos. This festive season, we have to think positive and quit all negativity. —Aditya Deshmukh, Actress

Stay safe

It’s my first Lohri without my mother, and it’s indeed going to be very difficult. Home it is for me, given the circumstances. I wish my well-wishers a very happy and joyous Lohri. Stay safe, stay blessed, and I hope everyone has a great year ahead!” —Shaalien Malhotra, Actress

Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif

Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif, who got married in December last year, will be celebrating their first Lohri this season.
