Imagine waking up in the holiest place your mind can fathom. You feel the divinity in the air as it softly tugs at your heartstrings. The cold water kisses your warm feet, awakening your senses. It gives you the audacity to believe in something you can’t quite put your finger on. Temple bells jingle in the distance, calling you closer. The crisp smell of camphor and the burning jasmine incense tickles your nose. You are surrounded by men cladding saffron and women dressed in saris with elaborate precision, covering their heads as they offer prayers to the sun and the water and the skies. You float across the courtyard taking in the surroundings as they come, and suddenly you find yourself losing all the weight of the heart and the mind. You are unaware of the soft smile on your lips or of the disappearing creases from your forehead. At that moment, you are wondrous but not perplexed, and curled up in a blanket of stillness.
Sobhita is a keepsake of one such spiritual experience. Birthed in the picturesque Banganga, residing under layers of winding streets of Mumbai, the fashion and photography shoot blooms with a divine charm. Clothed in fine saris and gracing the traditional bindi, the actress’ look is inspired by that of a woman blossoming in virtuous beauty. Sobhita Dhulipala is an Indian film actress known for her role in Raman Raghav 2.0, directed by Anurag Kashyap. Her features stir in a sense of calm, an attribute that lies at the soul of the shoot. Away from Mumbai’s madness and still very much within the city, the location brings a recollection of the many holy towns of India like Varanasi, Mathura, and Ayodhya. Lose yourself in a sacred experience with Arjun and Sobhita as you absorb the soothing vibes of a holy place.
