Shahrukh to participate in  Krishna Jayanthi Dahi – Handi event in Mumbai

Krishna Jayanthi festival is being celebrated across the country today.  The festival is celebrated pompously in North India.


During the festival of Krishna Jayanthi, lakhs of people from all over Maharashtra gather at Jambhori Ground, Worli, Mumbai to witness the Dahi-Handi event. 

Tall Bamboo sticks are bound by a pot with curd in it. The one who breaks the pot wins a prize. 

Every year, celebrities are called for the festival. Sachin Ahir and Sangeeta Ahir from Sankalp Pratishthan have made arrangements for the Dahi - Handi festival.

Recent Hindi movie ‘Chennai Express’ is running successfully in theatres.  Dialogue in the movie by Shahrukh Khan not to underestimate a common man’s power has turned popular. 

This time, they decided calling Shahrukh Khan for the event with doubt as to whether he would agree.  But, Shahrukh Khan seems to have conceded immediately. 


Shahrukh Khan, who knows about the festival, said in a lighter vein that he desires meeting their Govindas.  Sangeeta said that she expects Shahrukh Khan to break the Dahi-Handi (pot with curd in it).  Also, she said that Shahrukh Khan would be honored by placing a turban on head and by presenting him a sword as he appears for the festival. 


It is to be noted that Shahrukh Khan is a Muslim.
