TV actor Shantanu Maheshwari who has been busy with several projects recently took a short break from his schedule for a holiday in Jodhpur.
The “Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi” season 8 winner actor explored the colourful city and enjoyed the local food. He visited the famous Mehrangarh fort in the city and shopped for locally-made items in the city’s market.
Shantanu said, “I am a Marwari and my family is mainly from Rajasthan. So I was quite excited to go back to my roots and explore the city. The entire trip was a lovely experience with some great hospitality and very warm and welcoming people who took good care of us”
“Also, a much needed break for me, and I got to explore one more city on my bucket list. The sightseeing bit with the forts was very interesting as there was so much to learn about them, and the Rajasthani mirchi ke pakode, dal batti churma and makhania lassi were to die for! Overall I had a very interesting trip to the vibrant city”
The trip met all his criteria for an ideal holiday. “My idea of a holiday is to thoroughly explore the place, as I don’t like to just go to a place and sit indoors. I like to experience different cultures, try out the local cuisine and meet new people. This helps me rejuvenate.”
On the work front, Shantanu is looking forward to take up something different. He said, “I want to take up projects which have stories that are interesting, and something out of the box. Something which I as an actor would love to execute in a different manner and put it out there for the viewers to enjoy”
“Also, projects that create some kind of a difference and characters which are challenging as well as can create some kind of an impact for the audiences, is what I would love to take up in this year”
