Like the masses, he also eats fruits and drinks coconut water during fast.
"On the day of Ashtami, I also perform Kanya Pujan, I feel it is best part of Navaratri because we believe that during Navaratri, goddess Durga comes home in the form of a little girl and we get blessings from all the girls. This year, I have decided to learn to play proper Garba because I love watching Garba, it's so colourful and a stressbuster," he added.
Talking about the festival, Simran said "I will start nine days of fasting. Most of the time, I shoot for 12 hours everyday and in this condition doing nine days fast will be a bit difficult, but I am sure it will happen smoothly with the blessing of Maa.
"The reason to do the fast is because my mother used to do it. A few months back, she passed away, so I want to continue that tradition. This year, Navaratri is also important for me because I am working on a great show 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kahlata Hai'."
For Ishita, Navaratri is very special. "I am from Kolkata which is known for Durga Puja. I follow nine days of worship and rituals at my home and on the day of Ashtami, me and my mother visit a Durga Pandal and there, we meet our relatives and friends and worship. I generally visit Kolkata during Navaratri but this year, I am busy with my show 'Jag Janaani Mata Vaishno Devi - Kahani Mata Rani Ki'," she said.
