This Is How Bollywood Celebrated Holi This Year…


Bollywood was in no mood to celebrate Holi this year reason being the sudden death of our favourite female superstar Sridevi. Last week, subsequent to the news of Sridevi’s death, Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar had cancelled their annual Holi party and so did others.

But quite a few Bollywood stars have in fact shared best wishes for fans and followers on social media. “Happy Holi .. the colours of life be within you ever,” tweeted Amitabh Bachchan, who also shared photos from the Holika-burning ceremony held on Thursday night. In the photos, Big B was accompanied by wife Jaya Bachchan, daughter Shweta Nanda Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and his granddaughter Aaradhya.

“The Holika has been burnt and the prayers done .. the ’tilak’ colours put .. and the special sweetmeat for the occasion ‘gujiya’ consumed,” Mr Bachchan wrote in another tweet.

Priyanka Chopra, who is currently in New York for work responsibility, also wished everyone a very “happy Holi” – “Happy Holi to everyone celebrating,” she tweeted. “The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the end of winter, & for many a festive day to meet others, play & laugh, forget & forgive & repair broken relationships.

“Wishing you a very Happy Holi! I hope you remember, No plastic balloons, okay,” tweeted Juhi Chawla.

Meanwhile, Ayushmann Khurranna echoed the emotion of many by posting sort of warning: “‘Bura na maano Holi hai’ is overused and misused. Dear men, you better behave with women this time,” he said on Twitter.

Ranveer Singh enjoyed the Holi with the singer Pharrell Williams, the two of the most colourful people, got together to paint the town red this time. Pharrell who is in India to promote a clothing line of a leading sportswear brand, of which Ranveer too is a brand ambassador. The moment the Gully Boy star got to know of the Happy singer’s visit to India, he grabbed the opportunity to welcome him. And to say that the two had quite a blast celebrating the festival of colours together, won’t be an understatement.
