Sunday is World Tourism Day, and while the idea of travel for relaxation would seem like an impossible dream in the time of pandemic that we are going through, several actors shared how much they are craving to take off to their favourite locales.
Comedian-actress Bharti Singh wants to travel to Greece. "I miss travelling. I travelled during the New Year and returned on January 3. It's been almost nine months since then. Itne me toh baby aajata (a child would be born in this span of time). I really wanted to go to Greece and Ibiza," she said.
Actress DevoleenaBhattacharjee, who wowed fans on "Bigg Boss 13", had her plans chalked out, but had to cancel them owing to the COVID-19 scare.
"After 'Bigg Boss' I had to travel but I didn't go anywhere because of the COVID scare. I could not even travel to my hometown in Assam," Devoleena said.
Hoping to visit London soon, South star NidhhiAgerwal eagerly awaits returning to the film set. "I definitely miss travelling, considering I travel so much for work. Eating on the streets — Oh God, I miss the experience! I would like to go back to shoot whenever things get better — can't wait," she wished.
"PavitraRishta" fame AshaNegi is an avid mountain lover, and she misses the fresh air of the mountains.
"I love the mountains. Last year, I celebrated my birthday in the mountains. I wanted to do the same this year but then Covid happened. I hope to get back to mountains soon," Asha said.
Actor Siddharth Nigam, who is a part of "Aladdin: NaamTohSunaHoga", would love to be in Dubai for a while. "I love going to new places, and I have been missing that a lot these days. I also have a few shoots scheduled out of India that have been put on hold. One of my favourite tourist destinations is Dubai. The last time I was there, it was on Independence Day. I was mesmerised by the fountain show that takes place near BurjKhalifa. That day, India's flag lit up on BurjKhalifa and Shah Rukh Sir's songs were played. It was an amazing experience that made my night," he recalled.
For actor TarunKhanna, nothing works like a few good days with friends in London.
"I love travelling and I am glad I got projects where I would have to travel a lot, in and around India. I would love to travel as much as I can in this life. London is one of my most favourite places. I am in love with the city and places around it," he said. (IANS)
