Festival means taking in a first day first show'
The effervescent Sai Dhanshika joins Deccan Chronicle in wishing our readers a very happy and safe Deepavali, even as she posed for a special photo shoot.
“Deepavali is a festival I always look forward to. I like to experience the true spirit of the festive season - be it the buzz on the roads, the vibrant new clothes we wear and the beautiful fireworks,” she says.
The first thing she would do on the festive occasion is to visit the Sai temple and offer her prayers.
True to her image of a ‘bold’ actress who is into self-defence techniques and does her stunts without a body double, the Kabali girl says, “Right from my childhood, I am not afraid of 10000 wallas or any of those atom bomb fire crackers. I also love those special wheels, which rise rapidly in the air while emitting a spray of sparks and disperse into the air colourfully. Since the court has fixed the timing for 2 hours to burst firecrackers during Deepavali, I want to stick to that. My friends and close cousins would gather at home and we would celebrate in a gala manner.”
She goes on to say, “Yet another thing, which comes to my mind when you say Deepavali, is catching up with Deepavali releases. I have never missed any of Thalaivar’s (Superstar Rajinikanth) Deepavali movies. This year, I have planned to watch Vijjay sir’s Sarkar FDFS (smiles).”
On the work front, the actress has her kitty full with half a dozen movies, a bilingual titled Mela directed by Kiran, Iruttu by Dhorai, Udgarsha by Sunil Kumar Desai, Kitna by Samuthirakani and Kuzhalee by Ramana.
