Deepika Singh, best known as Sandhya Rathi, from one of India’s most popular TV shows, Diya Aur Baati Hum, is on a maternity break. The actress became a mother to son Sohum in May last year and has taken time off from her career to spend time with her baby and get back in shape before making her comeback on Indian television. The actress recently celebrated the Gangaur festival with her family and shared some pictures of the same. In a picture that made its way to social media, she is seen dressed in her traditional finery for the festival and to say that she looks gorgeous is an understatement. Donning a magenta salwar kameez with a Rajasthani veil and nath, the actress is glowing as she poses in the sun for the pic.
The festival that began on March 2 this year, came to an end today. For the uninitiated, Gangaur is a Rajasthani festival that has women worship Goddess Parvati. It celebrates spring and marital fidelity. The festival is of great significance for married women who observe fast for their husbands. Deepika tied the knot with Diya Aur Baati Hum’s director, Rohit Raj Goyal, a few years ago. Her son is all set to turn a year old in May this year. Deepika took to Instagram to share her pic from earlier today and wish her fans an auspicious and prosperous Gangaur festival. Take a look at the pic below.
The actress captioned the pic, “Wishing you all ladies a very happy Gangaur festival. Gana is a synonym for Lord Shiva and Gaur which stands for Gauri or Parvati who symbolizes Saubhagya (marital bliss). The unmarried women worship her for being blessed with a good husband, while married women do so for the welfare, health and long life of their husbands and for a happy married life. #India #rajasthaniculture #gangaurfestival #rajasthaninath #Mehendi #kajal #rajasthaniodhani #festival #jointfamily🍁 #togetherness #happiness ✨🎉🎊 pic credit @deepak86509 😊🙏” We can see that she has been able to shed all her post pregnancy weight and is ready to make a comeback on TV. Apart from being an actress, she is a trained Odisi dancer who gives recitals within the country as well as abroad. Well, fans certainly can’t wait to see her dazzle on screen again. What do you have to say about it?
