It looks like Sai Pallavi has taken a break from the hectic schedule of the shoot for SK 21. Since Sivakarthikeyan had flown down to Chennai and other parts of south India, Sai Pallavi, too, had taken some time out to enjoy the pristine beauty of Kashmir. The actress recently embarked on a pilgrimage to Amarnath along with her parents and dropped pictures of the same on her social media handle. She also narrated her experience travelling with her family.

The actress, who is quite guarded about her private life, took an exception this time around and wrote about the pilgrimage. Her post read,"#AmarnathYatra I’m one who never likes to share very personal thoughts but I’d like to write about this pilgrimage that I’ve been wanting to make for a long time now.

Taking parents who’re almost 60 is emotionally testing in ways one cannot explain. Watching them gasp for breath and hold their chest, take breaks at slippery paths amidst snow made me question the lord almighty, why you so far? And I got my answer when I walked back after the darshan."

She also narrated her experience ascending the arduous trek. She wrote, "As I walked down the hill, I witnessed something overwhelming: When people notice a few yatris on the verge of giving up, they take a long breath and chant “Om Namah Shivaya”, and instantly the same yatris chant back and pick themselves up to continue.

Horses and the villagers carry the yatris to fulfil their desire of worshipping Bhole Nath at the holy cave."

She added that Amarnath challenged her will power and her resilience. "This place is powerful because it stands witness to the acts of such selfless service. Regardless of our wealth, beauty and power, one's healthy body, strong mind and a heart that helps others is what’s going to make our journey on earth worth living.

Amarnath yatra challenged my will power, tested my body and proved to me that this Life itself is a pilgrimage and we are a dead race if we are not there for each other!"
