As Janmashtami approaches, the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this auspicious festival are palpable among celebrities and devotees alike. With its vibrant traditions, captivating tales of Lord Krishna`s life, and spirited celebrations, Janmashtami holds a special place in the hearts of millions. Celebrities have expressed their enthusiasm for this joyous occasion, sharing their best wishes and plans to mark the birth of Lord Krishna with devotion and festivity.

Kritika Singh Yadav who plays Pratiksha in ‘Pyaar Ke Saath Vachan Dharampatnii’ says, “Today, as we celebrate Lord Krishna`s birth, I think about the lessons he has taught us about righteousness and compassion. As a kid, I used to participate in the school skit and dress up as Radha. My family has taught me the value of love, humility, and selflessness that he personified. As a devoted Krishna bhakt, I find solace and inspiration in his teachings, guiding my path towards a life filled with love and virtue.”

Puneet Vasishtha portraying the role of Narad in ‘Shiv Shakti – Tap Tyag Tandav’ says, “Janmashtami is one of my favourite festivals and it takes me back to how I learnt about the glory of Lord Krishna. I remember raising funds for dahi handi in my society. All my friends and I loved huddling together and forming a pyramid to break the matki. Every year, I visit the Iskon Temple next to my house at midnight to rock the cradle of Lord Krishna to celebrate his birth. May this Janmashtami bring us all closer in devotion and celebration, fostering unity and spreading the blessings of Lord Krishna throughout our lives.”

Raghav Thakur essaying the role of Krishna in ‘Suhaagan’ says, “Janmashtami holds a special place in my heart, as it takes me back to the cherished memories of my childhood. The excitement of dressing up as little Krishna, the vibrant `matki phod` competitions, and the melodious bhajans filling the air. Janmashtami, for me, is not just a festival; it`s a beautiful reminder of the innocence, joy, and togetherness of those early celebrations with family and friends. Ironically, my character bears the name Krishna in Suhaagan, and my entry in the show was on the song ‘Woh Kisna Hai’, a memory I will treasure for a lifetime.”
