In fact, a source close to Kriti reveals that the two celebrate Raksha Bandhan in the same manner any brother-sister duo would. “They tie Rakhis to each other, and spend the day with their family,” says the source.
This year, however, there has been a change in plan. Since Kriti is busy shooting for film-maker Rohit Shetty’s next, she won’t be able to visit her home in Delhi. “So Nupur will be flying down to Mumbai, and they will have a short celebration in the city,” says the source.
When contacted, Kriti says, “Yes, my sister will be here on Raksha Bandhan. The day shouldn’t just be about a brother promising to protect his sister. Siblings could make a similar promise too, just like my sister and I have been doing since childhood.”
