HYDERABAD: Holi is just around the corner. As we are all getting ready – from choosing those peppy numbers to dance to, the tasty sweet and spicy dishes and ways to safegueard our skin and hair from the harmful chemicals – on screen damsels  too share their tips and memories


Kriti Sanon

The pretty actress of last year’s hit movie Heropanti is all set to celebrate her first Holi in bollywood this year.

Hair and skin care

I ensure that I oil my hair with coconut based hair oil. It takes care of my hair and protects it from the damage of the harsh Holi colours. Additionally, I prefer tying up my hair while playing Holi. Open hair tends to tangle and damage ones hair even more. You can don a fashionable side braid or a side ponytail too.

I also try and moisturise my skin with coconut oil before stepping out as colour doesn’t seep into my skin and it is easier to take off the color after playing Holi

Best memory

I used to celebrate Holi every year with my sister Nupur and all our friends in our colony’s central park. Once we found a broken bath tub on a terrace and filled it up with colour, water and mud and then each person was thrown in turn by turn. We ate pakodas and had thandai and danced on various Holi songs!

Holi plans this year

This year I will be celebrating Holi with my family

Favourite Holi dishes

My favourite delicacy for Holi is gujiya. My mom makes the best gujiyas and I cant wait to eat them

Favourite Holi song

The universal Holi anthem, Rang barse, is my favourite.


Vidya Balan

Best memory

Star colours.jpgMy fondest memory is that of my father filling balloons with water early in the morning. We would go up to the terrace and throw balloons on each other.

Once we were done, the adult Holi would begin that meant rang and mild bhaang and dancing in the building compound. My watchman would also help us with buckets of water from the tanks.

Holi plans this year:

I am hoping to play Holi with friends.

Favourite Holi dishes

Imarti from Sattu in Sindhi society, Chembur

Favourite Holi Song:

Rang barse and Shubha Mudgals Ab ke Saawan.


Deepika Padukone

Hair and skin care:

I usually massage my hair with coconut based hair oil. It not only protects my hair from the harsh color and chemicals but also provides nourishment. Try and cover your hair with a scarf or bandana so the chances of colour entering your scalp are minimal. I moisturise well and use an SPF before I set out to play Holi. This helps me in removing the colour from my skin more easily and protection from the sun.

Best memory

Holi has been one of my favourite festivals since childhood that I used to play after coming back from school with my friends in the building.

Holi plans this year

I am shooting for Tamasha and Bajirao so we may play Holi on the sets. This year will be a working Holi for me.

Favourite Holi dishes

Tangy and Spicy.

So chat may be.

Favourite Holi song

I know they are my own songs but I have to admit that Balam Pichkari and Lahu Muh Lag Gaya (RamLeela) are my current favourtites.
