It’s not only in the movies that out Bollywood stars let their hair down and dance like there’s no tomorrow to some peppy Holi tracks. Even in real life, our filmi junta loves celebrating the festival of colors with as much pomp and excitement as the common man does. Many big-name Bollywood families have even been hosting annual Holi events that have now become a tradition of sorts. Holi is one occasion where many celebs from B-town come together, leaving all their differences behind, to party and have fun in the true spirit of the festival, just like regular people would do.
