'Raksha Bandhan' is a famous festival of Hindus. It is also called the festival of 'Rakhi'. It falls on Purnima or full moon day. It is celebrated across all over India. 'Raksha' means protection and 'Bandhan' means bound. Thus 'Raksha Bandhan' means the 'Bond of Protection'. On this day, Sisters tie a special band on their brothers' wrist as a mark of affection. This thread is called the 'Rakhi'. The brothers in return takes a lifelong vow to protect their sisters. On the day of Raksha Bandhan, brothers and sisters reaffirm their pious bonds of affection. Here our televisions actors shares about their Rakhi plans.

I will be missing my sister (Reet Vohra) this Rakhi as I couldn't make it possible to be with her for the occasion. But we are going to connect over phone and Video calls and spend time talking. I have send her special surprise parcel and I'm sure she will love it. Have lots of love and regards for her.
My rakhi celebrations are going to be different this year as I have all the time to celebrate, chilling and eating. Also I do expect a lot of gifts but I end up only giving gifts instead of receiving. My brother is soo young that I cant ask him to gift. But sure once he start earning will ask him take me for shoping.

My sister is very special to me. She is my life line. We dont need a specific day to celebrate but we enjoy every day and occasion together. For Rakhi we surprise each other and spend some good time. Rakhi for me is a family time.
For Rakhi, I will be missing my younger sister. My family is in US this year. But I am as usual celebrating with Zoe (Pug) It will be thirteenth year of Rakhi celebration with him.
This year for Rakhi celebrations, when my sister will be coming to home. I would want to take my family for an outing and relive those childhood memories and do the same things which we haven't done in a while as a family.
Rakhi time is always special to me. I enjoy the occasion with my brother, Upen Patel and Sohan Thakur. Every year I tie them the Raksha-Sutra and enjoy quality time with them. I am really thankful and blessed having them as my brother. They always care about me, its not only the relation for Rakhi we share but the pure bond we stand every now and then.
