Sharad Kelkar is all set to be seen as a military officer in tomorrow’s release Bhuj: The Pride Of India, which also features Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Nora Fatehi and Ammy Virk in the lead. The actor is currently busy in the promotions of the film, however, before that, he recently took a trip to Kashmir.
Speaking about the trip, Sharad informs, “It was a short family trip that was long overdue. Normally, we would go out on a holiday at least once abroad and twice within India, in a year. But because of covid we couldn’t go anywhere since January last year. I was also shooting in different places, including out of India this second time. My daughter’s school is also about to start and since a family holiday was due, we took off to Kashmir.”
Mesmerised by the beauty of the place, often referred to as 'heaven on earth', Sharad can’t stop raving about Kashmir. “I feel that nothing is more beautiful than Kashmir on the whole planet and we don’t respect that. I want to make a request that all the money we spend on overseas locations for holidays, come to Kashmir rather. Kashmiris need tourism there. Whatever money you are spending outside, spend it here and it would be much more fulfilling,” he insists.
Sharad further goes on to celebrate the beauty of the place. “The beauty of Kashmir is unreal. It’s something else. I have gone to so many countries but the place that I saw this time, Pahalgam, there is nothing like it in the whole world. I would request everyone that if you are doing two international holidays a year and have money to spend, please come to Kashmir. They need us and are looking forward to the tourists. They don’t want international travellers but Indians who can cherish what we have. We are leaving everything that we have to go look for the same thing outside our country,” he concludes.
