Actor Shraddha Kapoor spent the Marathi New Year, Gudi Padwa, with her friends and family in her hometown, Mumbai. The actor tries to be in the city every year to spend time with her family on the occasion.
Kapoor, who is busy with four projects that will release in 2019, is juggling between hectic shooting schedules and has been unable to spend time with her family. On Gudi Padwa, she managed to take some time out to celebrate the new year with her family.
Talking about her memories of celebrating the festival, Shraddha said, “Ever since I was a kid, Gudi Padwa has been a part of my life. I have the fondest memories of celebrating the day with my grandparents. We would have til gul (sesame and jaggery laddoos) and I would look forward to being fed lots of food by my grandparents. My fondest memories are while growing up. Now I am almost always filming. Traditionally our family would get together, but I don’t get to be a part of that now.”
Shraddha’s mother Shivangi is a Maharashtrian and it has been a tradition for the actor to celebrate the day with her extended family. Special Maharashtrian delicacies like Puran Poli, Sheera and Shrikhand are prepared every year and Shraddha who has a sweet tooth, takes a day off her diet to binge on them.
Last year, the actor gifted her mother and aunt Chanderi saris on Gudi Padwa since she was shooting for Stree in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh.
The actor who recently finished the shooting of Chhichhore will is currently working on Street Dancer, Saaho and Baaghi 3.
