It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, it’s not just the famed lyrics of the famous Andy Williams, but in true sense, the festive mood spread across the land and homes of Telugus everywhere. Yes, it is the Sankranti moment and the harvest festival, where happiness and revelry, and camaraderie and fun are all harvested in hearts and homes.
Away from home and sorely missing the fun and festivities! Take the shortest route and easiest transport to Ramoji Film City on any day between January 13 and 15, because Sankranti Sambaralu takes off on a grand and traditional style at the world’s largest film city. It is really surprising, but one has to experience to believe the scale of the Telugu pandaga and its most authentic set up that makes you feel at home.
The grandeur of any Indian festival is reflected in the family bonding, and of course, followed by rituals and traditions, and then fun and food. Sankranthi is embellished with the rural essence and in every aspect celebrates the life in harmony with nature, weather and geography. At Ramoji Film City, every nuance is captured and recreated as if you were travelling in a classic Konaseema village lit with the extravaganza of Sankranti.
The décor and festive look will be visible right from the ticket counter to Eureka and Food Court. Just feel the awe and aura.
The endless list of attractions just leaves you pampered and fascinated. Gangireddulu that shake their heads in joy and Hari dasulu to sing and chant good words extend the hearty welcome. Of course, Sankranti is not complete without Rangoli, and Ramoji Film City presents the perfect riot of colours. Don’t miss the fun with parrot astrologer or chilaka josyam and palm astrologer. If you want to witness more ‘earthen’ fun, turn to pot making and the dexterity that shapes the pots.
Indulge in the traditional spread of Sankranti dishes and splurge on the regional tastes sourced from different corners of the Telugu land.
So enjoy the traditional touch of the festive trait, Bhogi, Sankranthi and Kanumu and capture beautiful moments at Sankranti Sambaralu, right from the dazzling Opening Ceremony
Till then Sankranti Subhakankshalu!
