Geetanjali Mishra’s entry into &TV’s Gharelu Comedy, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, as the new Rajesh Singh (Rajjo), has generated immense excitement among the audience. The actor delighted fans by visiting Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh’s capital, from August 18th to 19th. During the trip, she connected with fans, explored renowned markets, and indulged in delicious cuisine on the streets of Lucknow. Sharing her excitement, Geetanajli Mishra essaying Rajesh Singh’s role, said, “My recent visit to Lucknow was delightful. I was pleased by the warmth with which people interacted with me and appreciated my performance as Rajesh. The love and appreciation I had been seeking, especially about my character, brought me immense joy. I went on a shopping spree, explored historical monuments and majestic palaces. The culinary offerings exceeded expectations. Despite its fame for non-vegetarian delicacies, I, as a vegetarian, felt like I was attending a food festival. I savoured an array of delightful dishes, but khasta sabzi, kulfi faldoo, and an assortment of flavorful chats won my heart. It turns out that Lucknow is indeed a paradise for vegetarians as well. I also visited Hazratganj and Aminabad markets, where I bought chikankari Kurtis, sarees, and matching ornaments. It was a gratifying experience. I wish to visit the city again!”

Moreover, she adds a touch of Bollywood drama and entertainment to the household. I am glad the audience has embraced their new Dabbang Dulhaniya with open arms.”
