Pulkit Samrat starts shooting for Suswagatam Khushamadeed on Lohri

The project commenced with the shoot of a dance number 

Published: 13th January 2021

On the occasion of Lohri, actor Pulkit Samrat has started shooting for his next film, Suswagatam Khushamadeed. The project was set to commence earlier but was delayed due to the pandemic. 

Pulkit says, “We are shooting a dance number today. I am facing the camera after exactly a year on a film set and I can't tell you how refreshing it feels to be back on set!” 

Recently back from Delhi, the Taish actor reveals it is going to be an eventful day for his family. He elaborates, “My sister just got married, so it’s her first Lohri post-wedding. It’s an auspicious occasion in a Punjabi household. I will be connecting with my family later in the day over a video call to celebrate the day. They are extremely excited and walk around the entire house with the phone in their hand all day!”

The actor reminisces about celebrating the festival as a kid. “I grew up in a joint family and I distinctly recall how they would gather planks of wood from the old furniture in the house,” he shares. “Lohri ki date toh pata nahi hoti thi (I didn’t know the date of Lohri) but the moment I saw my family gathering wood I would realise that the festival was approaching. I used to be highly amused when I saw a pyramid being set up using the wood, which is then lit up. I would try to make one myself with the wooden planks but would fail miserably. It was fun doing the rounds of the holy fire while throwing peanuts and gajak into it.”
