Lohri marks the beginning of the harvest season. The festival is also celebrated to pay respect for making the harvest possible. Lohri night is considered to be the longest night of the year, hence it is also called winter solstice.
Angad Haseja, The one who is currently seen in Ziddi Dil Mane Na says, Lohri always meant family time for me, but of course once you start working you remember these things. You give up some happiness to get success. Lohri always brings back memories of Chandigarh for me. All my relatives would gather together and we would dance the whole night and enjoy some delicious delicacies. For me this festival is about positivity, vibrancy and hope for a better tomorrow. This year I will celebrate it in Mumbai. Since I have just started working on a show, I will celebrate it with my co-stars. A video call back home would help me celebrate it virtually with them.
Sharad Malhotra Baxi, currently seen as Jagabandhu in Rebel, shares that I miss Kolkata at this time of year. I think Kolkata is a city that celebrates every festival with great enthusiasm and I miss the vibrancy of the city. The festival of Lohri means happiness and prosperity to me. Since I have tested positive for COVID and am still recovering from it, I will be celebrating it with my wife Ripsy and our lovely baby Leo. A small celebration for the three of us as we are still in isolation. Happy Lohri to all, but while celebrating don’t forget that we are still in the middle of a COVID war, so wear a mask, maintain social distance and follow all safety protocols.
