The new year was celebrated across India on April 14. The harvest festival is marked as Rangali Bihu in Assam, Poila Baisakh in Bengal, Puthandu in Tamil Nadu and Vishu in Kerala.
With the coronavirus lockdown in effect, a lot of people felt homesick on the day. Many, including celebrities, made their day special with a traditional touch.
Saath Nibhana Saathiya fame Devoleena Bhattacharjee celebrated Bihu and Noboborsho on April 14 with special wishes for her near and dear ones. The actress, who was born in Assam to a Bengali family, wore a traditional mekhela chador for the day.
“Wishing you all a very happy Rangali bihu & Shubho noboborsha (sic),” she captioned the pics. The Bigg Boss 13 participant also performed Bihu dance, the folk-dance form of Assam, to mark the special day. Her friends and co-stars Rashami Desai and Deepika Singh wished the actress.
