He said: “I celebrate Holi with my family. In fact, my daughter has insisted that we celebrate Holi this year with her nani, nana and dadi and the two of us with some very close friends.”

Moving on to what he thinks about safety in Holi, the ‘Iqbal’ actor said: “As far as safety is concerned, I believe we must use organic colours. Of course, we must use colours because it’s a colourful festival and what is Holi without colours? But keeping in mind that it’s completely organic and natural. We must not waste water because it’s gold, we cannot live without it and it’s extremely precious.”

Shreyas added: “The one thing that I would like to change this Holi is to avoid any more change. But change is the only thing constant. I would like to go back in time and celebrate Holi the way we used to. There are times when we would give anything to just go back in time for that one day. Other than that, I don’t think I’d like to change anything else because things will keep changing anyways and we should learn to adapt to it.”
