As several communities across India celebrate various festivals every year, there is no shortage of celebrations along with the new year as there are many festivals. From Makar Sankranti and Pongal to Lohri. It is now the first festival of the year, Lohri, which marks the beginning of the end of winter and the start of a new harvest season for farmers in North India.

In the past, Bollywood has never missed an opportunity to celebrate festivals and share their own takes on these auspicious occasions.
Abhishek Kapur, TV’s most popular face, shares childhood memories

People living in apartments in Mumbai do not have the privilege to fly kites on their terraces because of safety concerns, but it always reminds me of my childhood, when flying kites was all that mattered to us. In spite of this, we still eat Khichdi on Makar Sankranti, which my mother makes at home. Everyone has a holiday and we spend time together. Since the festival falls during winter, people cook sweet potatoes on sigdi and then eat them.”

Abhishek wishes that the festival brings happiness and prosperity to everyone. He says, “Makar Sankranti is the first festival of the new year and I hope it brings happiness and prosperity to everyone.” “I hope everyone’s careers keep going up the same way as the kites fly high in the sky,” he said.

Hi, this is your Filmee Boy! About me? Well, I am a "Bakchod" who performs way better than "Thugs of Hindustan" by firing "Andhadhun" words. I am the "Padman" who has always stood at "102 Not Out". Last time when you were being a "Fanney Khan" at one of your "Veere Di Wedding", I was ruling the "Baazaar" of Bollywood by singing "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga".
