The actor says, ''Onam has a historical and cultural significance with our country and symbolizes unity and prosperity among people. Since I am not a South Indian, I get to participate in this splendid festival through one of my friends here in Mumbai. The highlight of the whole festival is the creation of Pookalam (flower rangoli), the preparation of Onasadya (grand feast), and the arranging of the Thiruvathira Kali dance. It is not just a festival but a beautiful tapestry woven with love, traditions, and unity. May this auspicious occasion bring joy, prosperity, and togetherness to all our lives. Happy Onam.''
