The star-cast of the upcoming Bollywood movie 'Jal' on Monday took part in the 'Rangotsav 2014', here at the PC Chandra Gardens to celebrate Holi in a truly colorful style.


The 'Rangotsav 2014' featured music by DJ Harish, rain dance, skin-friendly colors and folk performances.

Bollywood actor Purab H Kohli charmed Kolkatans and celebrated Holi along with his co-star Kirti Kulhari, the lead stars of the upcoming movie 'Jal'.

'Jal' is the story of a young water diviner, Bakka who is gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert.

With the backdrop of water paucity, the film tells a complex and fascinating story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of human character.

It is a high-octane, action- drama with a shocking climax.

'Jal' was also the only Indian film to have made it to the in-competition segment of the recently in the 'New Currents Section' of the Busan International Film Festival and was also more recently the official selection in the Indian Panorama Section at IFFI Goa.

'Jal' stars Purab H Kohli, Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain amongst others.



Another key highlight of the film is that it marks the official debut of Sonu Nigam and Bickram Ghosh as Music Directors.

The film is scheduled to hit the silver screen on Apr 4.

Rahul Madhogaria, the organizer from Buzz 365 Entertainments said, "Elaborate arrangements for the festival are being made here this time at PC Chandra Gardens - Rangotsav 2014 by us. Holi this year coincides with World Water Day, so the message becomes even more relevant."

Madhogaria said, "We are trying to highlight on 'Masti Gulal Ki' to show how Holi can be great fun even without the use of water. We are heading toward summer and with the kind of drought in so many parts of India, we thought we would do it differently this time and send out a message to people that celebration of Holi is about colours and not necessarily asking for lots of water tankers."

He added, "We wanted to go waterless, but wanted to keep it colourful and dynamic too. Showcasing the various styles in which Holi is celebrated across different Indian states, we have beautiful arrangements that represent the country's vibrant cultural canvas."

Purab Kohli said, "I love this festival as this is only occasion for we actors to celebrate with fun. Forget your worries and have a blast. Groove yourself in colors and get painted with love, affection and celebration. It's always super fun to throw someone into the pool or dump colours on friends."

Kohli added, "Squirt coloured water on your friends and dear ones or smear their faces with Gulaal... anything goes for it's that time of the year when you can say, 'Bura Na Maano, Holi Hai'. Rangotsav at PC Chandra Gardens is the place to be in this Holi as people gear up for an outlandish display of colours here. I am just loving it here with my fans all around."
