Although there are many cultures, languages and rituals in India, still each and every festival is celebrated with equal vigour by Bollywood’s glitterati. Welcoming the warm festival of Lohri in the cold weather, celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor and Randeep Hooda wished Lohri to all their fans and well wishers.
Lohri, which is celebrated primarily by Sikhs and Hindus, is a popular winter Punjabi folk festival. It marks the end of winter season, and is a traditional welcome of longer days and sun’s journey to the northern hemisphere.
It is observed the night before Makar Sankranti or Maghi and typically, falls about the same date every year on January 13. Here is how what the celebs wished fans and followers on Twitter:
