New Delhi, August 12
On the event of Janmashtami, celebrities took to social media to increase greetings to their followers, giving a glimpse on how they’re celebrating Lord Krishna’s birthday. When in lockdown a competition is a welcome distraction, bringing with cheer and hope.
Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Siddhart Malhotra and Shilpa Shetty amongst others posted on their Twitter and Instagram handles.
Kangana Ranaut posted an image of Lord Krishna, calling Lord Krishna the one “fashionista incarnation of God”. She captioned it: “Krishna is the only fashionista incarnation of God… he loved decorating himself with peacock feathers, flowers and yellow silk, he played (the) flute and danced like a celestial being, what to say about Krishna, he is not God he is a doorway to madness.” Actor Amitabh Bachchan additionally shared an image of Lord Krishna on Twitter and prolonged greetings to his followers.
