Enjoying a holiday in our favourite picnic spots with family and friends help rejuvenate and create precious memories. On International Picnic Day, &TV artists Darshan Dave (Randheer Sharma, Doosri Maa), Gazal Sood (Kate Singh, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan), and Shubhangi Atre (Angoori Bhabi, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai) share their favourite picnic destinations and memories. Darshan Dave, aka Randheer Sharma from Doosri Maa, shares, “The picturesque picnic spots in Jaipur serve as the appropriate backdrop for a casual and fun outing. I love wandering around havelis and monumental places. I have visited many such places in Jaipur. However, my all-time favourite picnic spot will be an old haveli at Amer City near Jaipur, which I explored many years ago during the shoot of one of my music albums. While shooting, we walked into the Haveli to avoid the rain, but the interior impressed us to the extent that we decided to shoot a few scenes there. I feel a profound connection to the place, and whenever I want to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, I visit there. The Haveli is my perfect picnic spot and leisurely escape from a busy day. The place is extremely relaxing and beautiful. I highly recommend people visit there and spend some good time amid nature and an artistic vibe.”
Gazal Sood, aka Kate Singh from Happu ki Ultan Paltan, shares, “My favourite picnic destination is Goa. While exploring the state with my friends during college, I came across a beautiful destination. As I hail from Punjab, I was always excited to experience the beach, and when I visited Vagator, I fell in love with it. The trip to Goa was special for me, as I explored so many places like Agonda Beach, Dudhsagar Falls, Aguada Fort, to name a few. It was the first time I experienced scuba diving and marine life. Although I have travelled to several beautiful places now, nothing beats my first adventure.” Shubhangi Atre, aka Angoori Bhabi from Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, shares, “There are many favourite spots where I love to go for a picnic with my family and friends. Every day spent amid nature is a memorable picnic for me. But my recent outing with my family was at my farmhouse near Malshej Ghat, Maharashtra. For me, it was an unforgettable experience. My family had travelled to Mumbai from Indore, and along with a few of my friends who are like family to me. We prepared food on mitti ka chullah and experienced sundowners from the terrace, and while playing outdoor games, we had the best of conversations and enjoyed the scenic beauty. Later in the night, we also played some music and danced our heart out. The next day we went to the nearby lakeside for its view, which was breathtaking. I have never had such a great time in years. On this International Picnic Day, pack your bags and explore the places with your loved ones.”
