Sagar Parekh: Winter season brings happiness inside me

Balika Vadhu 2 actor Sagar Parekh loves winter season. “I love winter season as it somehow brings happiness inside me. It’s a season where you can enjoy having warm food. In winter, the days are very short. It’s just a feeling that in this season I never get tired. I always feel refreshed and really energetic. The season is cold, but it brings some kind of warmth inside you and you have an energetic mood. We get to wear warm clothes and there is always beautiful and pleasant weather,” he said.

Still, he loves Mumbai where there is no winter season. “From September to April, I think we do have very pleasant weather in Mumbai. Mumbai is near the Equator and covered by sea bodies so we don’t get to experience winter season. But the weather is really pleasant, so it works for me. I love winter because in Mumbai, it takes a sharp dip in the temperature that we usually face. In Mumbai, one can actually feel the city getting uplifted, you can feel the rise in energy and it’s a good feeling,” he said.

His favourite destination during the chilly season is Tromsø in Norway. “If you go during this time you would get to see the beautiful northern lights. There is a cable car out there which would take you to the top of the mountain where you spend the night in the camps and see the stars. You would feel that you are in space and that’s where I want to go,” he said.

During winter, he loves to eat Gajar Ka Halwa. “In every house, this dish is made and I really love it,” he said. Celebrities have a busy life, but he believes that they also have the control in their own hands. “It all depends on the priority. Yes, there are people who decide that once in a year they want to spend time with their family,” he said.

As for his favourite getaway, he shared, “I go to Lonavala if it is 1-2 day break and if it’s more than a week then I go home, meet my parents as I do not really get the time. It’s been 6 years and I haven’t had much time to spend with them, so I go at my home.”
