It is Christmas Day and as celebrities gear up for party time, actress Urvashi Rautela is busy connecting with her friends, some of whom have kept in touch with her over the years. The big Christmas message she received this morning though was from her special friend, American rapper, Maejor Ali, who sent her a special message. Urvashi admits that she was delighted to receive the message from the singer and record producer, who had hosted her during her last visit to Los Angeles, six months ago, “He sent me a text message and I sent him Christmas wishes too but these long distance friendships are really very painful because you can’t meet your friends often even if you would want to. Thanks to this digital era that we can at least stay connected,” she says.
According to the actress, Christmas is a season that she has always cherished over the years from her childhood days, “It revives the nostalgia of school days and the good times I spent with my friends in Uttarakhand. I studied in St Joseph Academy in Dehradun, Uttarakhand and I vividly remember my growing up years in school when we would celebrate the entire Christmas week. I and my friends would also make it a point to pay obeisance to the St Joseph church in Kotdwar, Uttarakhand, the second biggest church in Asia,” the actress recalls. The big excitement was the surprise gift from Santa Claus, who would come with a big bag of goodies, ”We would all wait for the Santa to come down and shower us with those special gifts. Later we would have a grand party in the evening on Christmas Day,” she smiles.
