Mumbai, March 16: Shabana Azmi, Manoj Bajpayee and Rajkummar Rao are set to join the Holi revelries Monday, but the new breed of actors – Parineeti Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Nargis Fakhri – say this year work will keep them so busy they won’t have time to indulge in the festival of colours.

Here is what they have to say:
Farhan Akhtar: Holi for me is always family time.
Parineeti Chopra: I’m shooting in Delhi. So Holi will be a working day for me.
Ayushmann Khurrana: I am not a big Holi fan. It’s a rowdy Holi in my part of the country. This time for Holi I just want to chill with my family.
Alia Bhatt: No Holi for me. I will be shooting for ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’.
Rajkummar Rao: I’ll be playing Holi with my close friends and family at home only. But no wet colours, only with gulaal.
Shabana Azmi: As is customary at my parental home in Janki Kutir, we’ll celebrate Holi with close friends and friends from theatre and cinema.
Rishi Kapoor: I’ve been shooting in Chandigarh. I have a two days’ break. So, I’m heading back home to Mumbai after 18 days. But I don’t play Holi.
Nargis Fakhri: I’ll be running around promoting ‘Main Tera Hero’. So I don’t think I’ll get a chance to play Holi. Maybe next year.
Manoj Bajpayee: I don’t celebrate Holi at all. But this time I’ve no choice because my daughter is insisting.
Ronit Roy: I haven’t played Holi in years.
Manish Paul: I will be playing Holi with friends and family at a friend’s farm house.
