Celebs share their favorite holiday destination in India:
Yes, we travel a lot even for work and pleasure. There are places in India that are very beautiful. Our country is extremely exotic and beautiful and as far as places are concerned Gujarat, Kerala, and Rajasthan are so beautiful. But my favorite destination is of course Goa because I love beaches and I just love to go there and relax. Places in Rajasthan and Gujarat have a history behind and it makes the place so beautiful not only in a scenic way but the back story makes it so much more interesting. The nearest place to Mumbai, which I generally admire and go for a two-three days break is Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar, which is like a mini hill station, very close to Mumbai, where you can get all the relaxation and all the fun. It’s a quick getaway from your routine.
My favorite destination would be Jammu and Kashmir because I feel that this is a destination that can beat any foreign country. Gulmarg is so beautiful, I have been there twice and t is not wrong to call it the Switzerland of India. Second would be Kerala, the beaches there are so beautiful and you won’t feel that you are in India.
There are so many hidden treasures in India there are some places you wouldn’t have even heard of but it will come as a total surprise to you. I went to Manali, Himachal Pradesh, during winters for a small holiday, and it was a delight to see those snow-clad mountains. I even did some skiing. Being a celebrity, you get to travel around the world, but I would give up on any trip abroad for Manali. It was like the mountains were calling me. Also, since I live in Mumbai the chilly weather of Manali gave a very different feel.
The beauty of India is unparalleled. That’s why it is rightly said “Saare jahaan se acha Hindustan Hamara”. From Kashmir to Gujarat, Kanyakumari, and the Northeast, there are such beautiful places that can make you fall in love with them. Having said that, I don’t have a particular city that I love, but given an option, I would like to visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar again and again. I first went there with my family and it was a different experience and feeling that I cannot express in words.
There is no other country as well as India. People who travel abroad for vacation, they should travel in their own country first. When I visited Africa and did the jungle safari then I did not see any tigers but when I visited the Ranthambore National Park I saw tigers. When I was shooting for the film ‘Pataakha‘; I needed to lose weight, and I used to go for a walk from Mount Abu to Guru Shikhar. There is one big bell, and it is said that by ringing that bell all your wishes will come true. It is my favorite destination, and I can go there as many times as I can.
I had a ball of a time when I visited Malaysia. It was a beautiful experience. But having said that, there is no denying that our country is no less than any foreign destination. There are such heavenly and majestic places that you need a moment to let it all sink in. But since I am a beach baby my favorite destination in India would be Goa. There is something about the atmosphere which gives you a very chilled-out vibe, and without any fear of being judged, you can just unwind yourself. Moreover, watching the sunrise and sunset gives you inner peace.
