Everyone remembers their childhood fondly. On Tuesday, actress Preity Zinta visited her family estate in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, to relive her childhood memories.
“I was so excited to see apple trees after so long that the minute it stopped raining I ran out and made this video. Glad I did so because minutes after it was pouring again. Going back home to our family farm during apple season after so many years was an emotional and exhilarating experience. Growing up, this place was dominated by the larger than life presence of my grandfather, grandmother and Rajinder mamaji and Uma mamiji. We spent the best days of my childhood her,” she wrote on Instagram.
Remembering her childhood days, Preity Zinta added, “Apple season was always special. So many rules. No eating in the grading halls, no disturbing or distracting the labour that diligently plucked apples in special baskets called Kiltas, no playing with apples or throwing them around etc. My favourite part was apple plucking and collecting the largest and the smallest apples of the season and of course glasses of freshly squeezed apple juice.”
In addition to the sentimental message, the star shared a video of herself showing off her apple orchard.
“Two years ago, I officially became a farmer and am so proud to be part of the farming community of the apple belt of Himachal Pradesh. Here’s a shout out to Himachal Apples that are the best apples in the world. I’m super stoked and proud of how well everything is maintained in all the farms given the Covid situation, shortage of labour etc… I’m also extremely proud of my brother for going completely organic and replanting our orchard with organic apple trees. #Ting #Appleorchards #farmlife #familytime #proudhimachali,” she concluded.
Preity Zinta recently celebrated her 23rd year in Bollywood. Her most recent appearance was in the 2018 film Bhaiaji Superhit.
