The recently concluded High Five On ZEE5 Awards, rewarded the most viewed content on ZEE5. Gul Panag’s Rangbaaz Phirse and Dheeraj Dhoopar’s Kundali Bhagya were big winners on the night. While Rangbaaz Phirse won the award for most binge-watched original series in December, Kundali Bhagya was the most binge-watched show in the last six months.
Watch Gul Panag’s interview with Bhawana Somaaya at the awards ceremony.
Both the stars graced the event to collect their respective awards a day after Lohri, which is celebrated widely in the north India. Dheeraj Dhoopar who’s family is from Delhi told us “I usually spend Lohri with my family in the capital, even last year I was home for the festival. Since I came to Bombay I have this thing of going back to Delhi to celebrate festivals with my family. But now I have a family in Bombay too. So we have decided to spend two big festivals in Mumbai and the other two big ones in Delhi. This year, I celebrated Lohri with my family in Bombay.”
Gul Panag who hails from Patiala also has fond memories of celebrating Lohri there. She remembers enjoying the end of the winter season. “Lohri traditionally is supposed to be the end of the winter in the North and coincidentally the winter chill takes a dip right after Lohri. I don’t know how that works. In Bombay the temperatures dropped after Lohri, surprisingly.”
