Festive time on Yeh Rishta...
“The sequence has come out well and it will be a visual treat for the audience,” says Rajan Shahi.
The shooting for the same has taken place in Udaipur and Rajasthan. “There were few localites who were watching the shoot. After the sequence was completed they complimented the whole unit and said that this is the way they celebrate this fest,” he adds further.
Gangaur Festival is devoted to Goddess Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva. It is the time for young girls to dress up in their finery and pray for grooms of their choice while the married women pray for the well-being of their husbands. This 18-day festival is laced with various activities and culminates in a grand procession marking the arrival of Shiva to escort his bride home. It is celebrated in the month of March-April.
Creative Director and Writer, Rajita Sharma states, “It’s one of the important festivals in the state where the idols of Isharji and Gungaurji (Shiv-Parvati) are made by these young girls. They do the puja for few days and at the end there is a huge procession that follows.”
“The procession ends at Pichola Lake where they bathe the idols in holy water and bring them back. The unmarried girls dream to get a husband like Ishwarji whereas the married women pray for their hubby’s long life,” she adds further.
In the show the story follows the lead girl Akshara’s emotional journey. “While making an idol she dreams of the man of her life. She tries to see the face of his in the idol though. We have shot in beautiful Ghats with elephants and camels in the procession. It was all together an overwhelming experience,” she concludes.
This special episode will start from coming Monday. So viewers get ready to celebrate the fest with Yeh Rishta…
