Rakshabandhan is one of the rare special occasions that celebrate the beautiful bond between a brother and sister. Needless to say, the festival is special for many celebrities and recently they were seen talking about the significance of it as they discussed their relationship with their respective siblings. They also talk about being emotionally dependent on their siblings and the best thing about having one.
Rakshabandhan Special: TV actors speak about their bond with their siblings
1. Sudhanshu Pandey
I don’t have a real sister, so like every year I wait for the Rakhi from my cousins and once they arrive, I would tie the Rakhi on my hand and my wife does the needful. She ties rakhi on my hands and on my boys. The significance of Rakshabandhan is that you know you have a sister, who cares for you and you know that you have a sibling who has your back. It’s a beautiful feeling. I have an older brother and cousin sisters and my relationship with them is fantastic. We have family groups where we chit chat and sometimes we poke one another. Being emotionally dependent on your siblings is very natural. The best thing about having a brother and sister is that you have one other, taking care of each other unconditionally.
2. Sudha Chandran
I come from a South Indian family and we don’t have Rakshabandhan because we have another festival where we pray for our brothers. I eagerly look forward to it now because I am married in a Punjabi family and for them this festival is of huge significance. Rakshabandhan has always been very special to me because I don’t think I need an occasion to talk about my brothers and sisters. Every day they are in my prayers because they mean a lot to me. We are related by blood. I being the eldest sibling in my family the responsibility is now on my shoulder as when the previous generation leaves you and you take care of the next generation then. It’s very difficult for me to explain in words what it means to me. It’s a beautiful relation that I have with my brothers and sisters though they all are my first cousins. On this day, I remember I lost my closest cousin at a very young age and I was emotionally dependent on him, and was very attached to him. We also grew up together. He was my mama’s son. He almost spent his entire life with us and I always used to fight with my mom that he is more important to her than me because my mother loved him so much. Unfortunately we lost him and that was a very big setback in my life. Every Rakshabandhan I think about him and pray that wherever he is, may god bless him with happiness.
3. Himanshu Malhotra
My sister Dharti has strictly told me to stay at home as she will be visiting me to tie the rakhi. Even my sister Pooja has sent a Rakhi for me and my brother Mohit. Raksha Bandhan is about developing and enhancing the bond. Sisters are beautiful as they take care of you in every aspect. Whenever my sister and I meet, we go to Iskon, have some food and spend time with each other. She is very precious to me. My sister Pooja also always stayed in touch with me. It’s a loving and caring bond. My sisters are simple and pure.
4. Mohit Malhotra
This Rakshabandhan, my sister has sent me Rakhi since I would not be able to go to Delhi because of my shoots and other commitments, so we will celebrate over a zoom call. I love all the Indian festivals but Rakshabandhan is one such festival where we get to revive our relationship with our sister and take a vow to protect her, no matter what. These traditions have an essence and it brings more closeness among the families. I share a very good bond with my sister. We are very close and share a lot of things about each other’s lives. The best thing about her is that she is all ears and always gives me better advice on what I should do. She always supports and cares for me. I think family is one thing that you always need to have, they are your strong support and I am lucky to have a family who always stood by me. You feel stronger when you know your family is always backing you.
5. Rajiv Adatia
I am celebrating Rakshabandhan in Shirdi this year, and we are celebrating it with Baba in Shirdi. This festival to me is very special because it’s been a bond between a brother and sister, which stays for a lifetime. My sister Deepa is in London, and obviously, I miss her a lot this year. My favorite memory of my sister is when we were kids. She has always been very caring to me; she just looks after me and I look after her. We had a lot of fun together when we were young, and she now has two children who are like my children.
6. Mohammad Nazim
I am celebrating Rakshabandhan this year with my sister Jyoti Mukherjee. It should be celebrated every day because a sister should be protected by her brother every day. So, just giving this daylight about the importance of sisters we have in our lives but otherwise, as a brother, I protect my sister every day. My best memory with her has been when we were shooting for Tera Mera Saath Rahe we use to have our lunch together and have a lot of fun on sets and that used to feel like family and she used to get food for us.
