Raksha Bandhan, the auspicious Hindu festival, celebrates the bond of love shared between brothers and sisters. The festival is observed every year in the month of Sawan and this year, it falls on August 11 and 12. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie Rakhi on their brother’s wrist, perform aarti, eat sweets, and exchange gifts with each other. Not just commoners, but celebrities also celebrate the festival with great zeal and fervour. As we speak of this, TV stars like Rubina Dilaik and Mohit Malik share their fond memories of Raksha Bandhan.
In a statement, Rubina shared, “I have grown up with my two sisters and for me, the festival will always be about my sisters and our bond. ‘Rakshabandhan’ means a promise of protection and we have always had one another’s back through thick and thin. I know this festival is a special day for a brother and a sister, but for me, it is about me and my sisters.” Recalling her memories of the festival, the Bigg Boss 14 winner added, “We used to tie ‘Rakhi’ to each other, but for us, it’s so much more than just one day, we protect and support each other every day.” ALSO READ: Happy Raksha Bandhan 2022: Wishes, Quotes, WhatsApp Status Messages, GIFs And Greetings To Share With Your Siblings This Rakhi!
Rubina also mentioned that this year she will have a small celebration at her home as she is a little preoccupied with her backlogs of work due to Khatron Ke Khiladi 12 shoot in Cape Town. But like every year, they will tie ‘Rakhi’ and pamper each other with beautiful gifts.”
Mohit Malik of 'Kulfi Kumar Bajewala' shared that Rakshabandhan has always been very special for him. “I have many happy memories of this auspicious day. When we were young, my sister used to surprise us by making handmade "Rakhis", and we would in return surprise her with presents. As kids we used to get small things for her within the little pocket money, we received from our parents. This year’s ‘Rakshabandhan’ is special for multiple reasons, as I was away in Cape Town for two months, shooting for ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’, this is the first occasion where I will be celebrating with my family after coming back. Most importantly, this is Ekbir’s first ‘Rakshabandhan’, and I am excited for him to experience this festival for the first time,” Mohit stated.
We, at SpotboyE too wish you all Happy Raksha Bandhan!
