Speaking about the same, Kumkum Bhagya actress Pooja Banerjee, who essays the role of Rhea, shared some thoughts about it. The 29-year old said, “I consider Janmashtami to be an extremely sacred festival and I have a lot of memories associated with the festival. Be it visiting temples lit up with diyas to dressing up as Radha and Krishna and seeing the ‘matki tod’ competition while feasting on the amazing snacks and sweets made especially for Janmashtami, I’ve always enjoyed celebrating the festival.”
Pooja also stated how due to the pandemic, celebrating this festival was impossible last year. The actress shared, “Last year, due to the pandemic, we couldn’t celebrate it and this year too, it will be low key celebrations for me with a couple of friends and family members. Here’s hoping everyone has a Happy and Safe Janmashtami.”
On the personal front, Pooja Banerjee steams up her Instagram account with some amazing photoshoots. Be it traditional wear or western wear, Pooja is a stylish diva and rocks every look.
She recently returned to Kumkum Bhagya as Rhea with an edgy look. Talking about that look, she’d earlier said in an interview, “When I was briefed about Rhea 2.0, I immediately associated her with Sky, which was Kalki’s character in Gully Boy. So, before shooting for my first sequence, I watched the movie again and observed Kalki’s mannerisms … portray this version of my character to its absolute best potential. Going forward, you’ll see Rhea as someone with an edgy, crazy, funky personality and she will always be on her own trip, in her own world. Rhea 2.0 is actually quite different from my personality and that makes me more excited to play this part. It will be a challenge, but I hope the audience will accept and love this new version of my character as much as they’ve loved Rhea so far.”
