Tina Philip talks about her Rakhi plans, childhood memories, and more.

The festival of Raksha Bandhan is all about celebrating the most special bond between a brother and a sister. No matter how much the siblings fight with each other, when it comes to a situation, they always have each other’s back. From hiding the secrets to being the best advisor in times of need, siblings are the first best friend. Television beauty Tina Philip, who is currently essaying the character of Rhea in Zee TV’s popular show Kumkum Bhagya, will miss celebrating Rakhi in person. The actress is shooting for her show in India, while her brother resides in the UK. Talking exclusively to IWMBuzz.com, Tina shared her Rakhi plans, childhood memories, and more.

How do you plan to celebrate Raksha Bandhan this year?

My brother is at home in the UK…so we plan to do a video call and celebrate rakhi. My mum has bought a rakhi for my brother which I selected over a video call. So a very virtual celebration this year.

One childhood memory of Raksha Bandhan with your brother?

I remember drawing a mustache on his face with a sketch pen before rakhi so he looked silly in front of relatives. I also used to find it quite exciting receiving gifts on this day so I remember trying to persuade every other family friend we had if I could tie rakhi to their sons.

Tell us about your equation with your brother…

I was a single child for a while and I really wanted a baby brother when I was little. So for me, he’s a gift from God. The day I saw him at home was the happiest day of my life. I was ecstatic! I used to take him along to my friend’s birthday parties and whatnot even though he was not invited. We’ve travelled alone to the US as kids just the two of us and have some really special childhood memories. Now we bond over what shows to watch on Netflix, food, and family stuff.

Your favourite sweet dish?

Jalebi and rabdi!

Happy Raksha Bandhan to all!
