I won't play Holi: Pancholi

Mumbai, March 12 (IANS) Bollywood actor Sooraj Pancholi says he will not play Holi as a step to preserve water.

"I won't play Holi this year. Though as a kid I used to play with colours, I am now old enough to understand that this is wastage of water. So I shouldn't do that," Sooraj said. 

The actor expressed his views while talking to the media at the Zee Cine Awards on Saturday night. 

He added: "Since my new film is going on floor in 15 days, I do not want any skin rash or any such things. After playing Holi, removing colours is another task. So this year, I am not playing."

Sooraj made his debut with "Hero" in 2015 opposite Athiya Shetty.
