Manish Verma who plays the character of Gulshan in Zee TV’s Teri Meri Ikk Jindri said, “I have been a big devotee of or you can say I am a ‘Shivbhakt’. This festival really means a lot to me as meditating and praying brings a lot of positive energy within me. No matter where I am, I never forget to visit the temple early in the morning on such an auspicious day. Like every year, I usually keep a fast too and this year too I plan to do the same. I hope this day brings an optimistic spirit in everyone’s life and give them the power to achieve almost everything they desire.”

Reyhnaa Pandit who plays the role of Aaliya in Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya revealed, “is a mega celebration at home. Being from Kashmir, the power of Shiva is celebrated for seven days and I am an ardent follower. As a kid, we would look forward for Shivaratri as Kashmiri delicacies were made every day, followed by sweets and we would also play games with shells. It was like our second Diwali and hence Lord Shiva has always been close to us. This year as well, I will devote some time for prayers and then some family time, apart from the Kumkum Bhagya shoot. Hope the day goes well for one and all and here’s wishing everyone a Happy Mahashivaratri.”
 
Amandeep Sidhu who plays the role of Mahi in Zee TV’s Teri Meri Ikk Jindri said, “My faith and devotion in Lord Shiva has been ever since I was a kid. While the festival is not celebrated on a very grand scale in my family, I used to like keeping a fast on the occasion of Mahashivaratri. Ever since then it has become a ritual that I follow on a yearly basis now. For me, remembering Lord Shiva is not just limited to this one day, I always begin my day praying to him and listening to Lord Shivas shlokas and meditation music while getting ready on set. It gives me all the positive energy that I require to start my day. Here’s wishing everyone a Happy Mahashivaratri.”
 
Adhvik Mahajan who plays the character of Jogi in Zee TV’s Teri Meri Ikk Jindri said, “I am an ardent Shivbhakt and I feel that the mantra, Om Namah Shivay has done a lot of miracles to me and it does to anyone who sincerely believes in the power of the mantra. I feel however small the problem is, be it anxiety, nervousness or anything that we may be unsure of, just chanting this mantra repeatedly can really help attain clarity and peace of mind. I believe in the positive power of Lord Shiva so much so that me and my family had decided to begin this year by visiting the Srikalahasti Temple in Andhra Pradesh and we held a pooja in that temple. On the occasion of Mahashivratri, I just hope Bholenath sab ka bhala kare and this year goes amazing for everyone considering how the last year unfolded.”
 
Raghav Tiwari who plays the role of Aditya in Zee TV’s Hamariwali Good News mentioned, “Not many know, but I celebrate Mahashivratri every year as I am an ardent follower of Lord Shiva. I go to the temple every year and conduct a small pooja and this year as well, I plan to do the same before heading to the sets of Hamariwali Good News. The schedule is very tight these days, so I’ll get time only in the morning this year. I must add that my connection with Lord Shiva is very different and whenever I need some positivity, I remember him and the festival is a big deal for me. Happy Mahashivratri to one and all, I am sure the Lord will shower his love and blessings to one and all this year.”
 
Tannaz Irani who essays the character of Maharani Rajeshwari in Zee TV’s Apna Time Bhi Aayega said, “Even though I am a Parsi, I am an ardent believer of Lord Shiva. The strength he possesses and all his sayings about bringing an end to any evil within and around us gives me the energy to be strong every day. Every morning, whether I am at home or at shoot, I listen to Shiva’s Tandava which very frankly I happened to be introduced to by chance. Growing up in a Parsi house didn’t really expose me to such things but when I heard it for the very first time, I was moved by it and felt a sense of oneness. Even in the night, I am always chanting Om Namah Shivay and each time I feel intimidated or like the world is crashing upon me, I immediately start chanting this and it brings me so much peace. While I don’t usually celebrate Mahashivaratri, I would love to visit a friend’s house to see the celebrations unfold.”
