On the occasion of Janmashtami, celebrities took to social media to extend greetings to their fans, giving a glimpse of how they are celebrating Lord Krishna’s birthday. When in lockdown a festival is a welcome distraction, bringing with cheer and hope.
Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Siddhart Malhotra, and Shilpa Shetty among others posted on their Twitter and Instagram handle.
Kangana Ranaut posted a picture of Lord Krishna, calling Lord Krishna the only “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.”
