Millions of Indians marked the Raksha Bandhan festival on Sunday when sisters tied rakhi on their brothers. Prime Minister, Vice President, West Bengal Chief Minister were among big names who greeted the nation on the occasion of the festival.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted, “Heartiest greetings to all my brothers and sisters on the occasion of Rakhi Bandhan.”
Bollywood fraternity too was in no mood to be left behind in enjoying the celebrations of a festival that marks the deep love between a sister and a brother. Leading the pack were four ‘young Pataudis,’ who decided to bond together on Raksha Bandhan.
Saif Ali Khan’s son, Ibrahim, took to Instagram to post an incredibly cute photo of himself marking the festival with sister Sara, cousin Inaaya (Soha Ali Khan’s daughter) and Taimur (Saif’s son from second wife Kareena Kapoor Khan.
In the photo, while Ibrahim looks engrossed in ‘ deep conversation’ with Taimur, Sara and Inaaya is busy staring at each other with fondness. Ibrahim’s caption read, “Raksha Bandhan #strongertogether.”
Fans instantly declared the photo as the ‘cutest’ as one wrote, “You guys are the cutest.” Another wrote, “it’s the cutest picture I saw today.”
Both Ibrahim and Sara were seen emerging out of Shani temple in Mumbai on Saturday. Sara, who’s making her Bollywood debut with film Kedarnath, had faced nasty trolling on Instagram as some of them asked her to drop Khan from her name.
Among other Bollywood celebrities, who celebrated Raksha Bandhan were Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan to starkids Janhvi Kapoor and Ananya Panday.
