The festival of Janmashtami was celebrated in much fanfare even in the houses of Bollywood celebs. Leading those celebrations were Shah Rukh Khan, and Shilpa and Raj Kundra’s son Viaan.
Today marks the auspicious celebration of Janmashtami. Celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna, devotees all across visit holy temples as well as visit Dwarka and Mathura. Processions are held across the city with devotees fasting and reading holy scriptures. Devotees also celebrate this day by breaking the Dahi Handi.
On the occasion of Janmashtami, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty carried on her yearly ritual and set up a Dahi Handi at her house in Mumbai. Her son Viaan Raj Kundra turned into little Krishna and broke the Dahi Handi in just one go.
The actress on Saturday took to social media and posted a video from the celebrations at her home. In the post shared, we see Viaan gearing up to strike Dahi Handi as her parents – Shilpa and Raj Kundra – cheer on for their baby boy.
Soon after he breaks the Dahi Handi, we hear Shilpa saying “Jai Shree Krishna” and a happy Raj capturing the proud moment. Little Viaan, too, couldn’t be more excited and is seen saying “first shot”.
In the background, the popular song Mach Gaya Shor Saari Nagri Mein takes over and the mood for the day is set.
Bollywood’s Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan is also celebrating the Dahi Handi festival with fervour and joy.
We just stumbled upon a video from the inside celebration from Shah Rukh’s Dahi Handi celebrations. Dressed in a grey hoodie, the star is seated on the shoulders of his bodyguard as he used a coconut to break the Dahi Handi amidst cheers, hoots and claps. Last year, Shah Rukh was accompanied by his little munchkin AbRam. Watch the video from SRK’s Krishna Janmashtami celebrations:
Just like last year, fans have gathered outside Mannat to get a glimpse of their superstar.
On the work front, King Khan was last seen in Anand L.Rai’s Zero along with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The film failed to impress the critics, audience and couldn’t make a mark at the box office either. SRK hasn’t signed any new film yet and fans have eagerly been waiting for the actor’s next film announcement.
