National Crush and the very handsome, Vicky Kaushal, has now shared his experience of the happening festival Ganesh Chaturthi. The actor loves the sociable nature of Indians, especially during festivals. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Vicky Kaushal shared his experience of the festival over the years.
Vicky Kaushal Shares His Favourite Memory:
The favourite memory reminisced by the actor is from his childhood. He said, “As a child, I spent a number of my formative years at our house in Amboli (Andheri-East), which was a Marathi-dominated locality. So, while growing up, Ganpati was the most important festive period for us. Also, Ganpati always meant the start of the long festive period. I remember the first day of the festival would be very hectic as you have to go for darshan at everyone’s house. Later, when we moved to Lokhandwala, all the building kids would get together and get Ganpati idol. I have experienced everything – right from getting the Ganpati, and then doing visarjan including dancing on the roads. Those days and get-togethers were a lot of fun.”
The actor also said that over the years he has realized that being eco-friendly and curbing noise-pollution is more important. He added, “From inside, I am still as kicked about Ganpati as I used to be as a kid.”
Vicky also brought forth the happy-go-lucky nature of Indians during festivals. He said, “By nature, Indians are very ‘social’ people – regardless of festivals or not. Humein bas milne-julne ka mauka chahiye. And what better occasion than a festival for having such special rendezvous? But this year, unfortunately, the pandemic affects the exact same ethos, of people getting together. As a result, I am sure it will be a comparatively smaller affair with social distancing measures etc.”
