It’s like the Christmas eve and Diwali being celebrated on one day. Director’s Kut has planned a series of celebrations all throughout the day, and the celebrations are in full swing even as we write this article. Early in the morning, the whole unit of Yeh Rishta.. starting from the actors, to the creative team to the technicians performed hawan on the sets. While the actors performed aarti, the ladies in the show sang Ganpati bhajans, thus starting the day seeking the blessings of the Almighty. The temple in the set has a festive look with Aarti being performed specially.
Amidst the festive atmosphere, the show has to go on!! Keeping the airing schedule in mind, the actors and the unit will disperse after the hawan for their shoot and gather again at 6 PM in the evening. We hear that the biggest celebration of the day will come in the way of Director’s Kut’s memento distribution event wherein specially designed silver coins with the logo of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai.. embossed on it being distributed to all the workers of the unit.
