Navaratri this year is all set to get bigger and better, with the Lav Kush Ramlila committee planning to have many popular faces from the film and television industry to be welcomed as their guests.
The committee, which has been organising Ramlila at the Red Fort, have invited Deepika Padukone, Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh, this year. Arjun Kumar, the secretary of Lav Kush Ramlila, told us, “Rati Agnihotri will be present on October 6, and on October 8, we will have Junior Mehmood. Hema Malini and Shailesh Lodha will attend the Ramlila on October 10 and 11, respectively. Deepika and Ranveer will be making an appearance on October 12 and Akshay Kumar will be there on October 13.”
While Hema Malini had rocked the stage with her performance last year, this year she will only be going there only as a guest.
According to Arjun Kumar, the sole purpose behind inviting celebs is to attract youngsters to watch the Ramlila. He further added, “The presence of celebs helps attract youngsters and this will at least get them to watch the Ramlila for some time.”
