Adish Vaidya (Vikram Saran in Pushpa Impossible)
“Dussehra is always celebrated with great fervor. Dussehra is considered to be an auspicious time in Maharashtra to start and buy new things. Another popular custom in Maharashtra is to exchange bidi leaves with their friends and family. These leaves represent gold and are called Aptyaachi Paan. We make delicacies at home and that is how I celebrate Dussehra every year with my family. This festival brings a lot of positivity and good vibes.
Garima Parihar (Dipti in Pushpa Impossible)
“On this day we get a chance to spend most of the time with our family as we are not shooting. I love how beautifully everybody takes effort to create effigies of Raavan. I love visiting melas and especially I love watching large effigies of Raavan, eating ladoos, badam halwa and many more sweets.This festival signifies the power of good over evil, no matter what the situations are, always choose to be a good soul, I deeply believe in good deeds, if somebody has to fear, fear God as that will never let you do anything bad. Do good and you shall see good. You attract what you give out. Happy Dussehra!
Vishal Karwal (Lord Vishnu in Dharm Yoddha Garud)
“I have very fond memories of Dussehra. I used to live in a very small town. We celebrated this festival every year with great joy and fervor. I would get together with my friends, and we used to walk for two kms to see the effigy burn. It used to be quite a joyous day as a kid! Also, there used to be plenty of delicacies, especially sweets to gorge on. I believe that bad things always have an end and that good always triumphs over evil. This festival is a celebration of truth’s victory.”
Parul as Kadru(Dharm Yoddha Garud)
“Dussehra is a reminder for everyone that good will always prevail and triumph over bad and evil. There is always the hope that justice will prevail and all things bad will perish while the good will thrive. I think Dussehra is the perfect example of this faith as it is believed that on this day Lord Rama killed the demon king Raavan, and rescued his abducted wife, Sita. As kids, we used to roam around in our town from one pandal to another and enjoy the festive atmosphere.”
Sumeet Raghavan (Rajesh in Wagle Ki Duniya)
“Dussehra is one of the major festivals of India. It is celebrated throughout the country with great zeal and enthusiasm. The thought behind Dussehra is very strong and holds a lot of meaning even in contemporary scenarios. Good always triumphs over evil. The essence of the festival is that an individual is on the right path as long as he adheres to his core morals and values, and this is what I believe in. Let this festival bring more joy, happiness and positive vibes into everyone’s life.”
