Festival of colors is here and Bollywood celebrities are up and about to celebrate Holi with their families. Just like in movies, our stars celebrate the festival with equal fervor in real life as weel. While Holi of RK Studio and Yash Raj Studios is quite famous, Dharma is soon catching up in the league.

As the day begins, celebrities have already taken to various social media sites to wish their fans a very happy Holi. Here's how your favourite celebrities send their wishes to this colorful festival.

Amitabh Bachchan, who has become synonymous to all the popular Holi tracks took to twitter to wish his fans along with a lesson to remember.

Shah Rukh Khan wished his fand Holi and asked them to stay high on life.

Preity Zinta, who got married last year, shared a photo with her husband, covered in color.

Priyanka Chopra, who is in USA shooting for Quantico, took to instagram to send her love and wish on India's favourite festival

Do me a favour let's play Holi! Here is wishing everyone a safe beautiful wonder filled Holi..

A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on

Akshay Kumar posted a video of himself throwing colors and wishing fans a happy Holi.

Sonam Kapoor shared a long post with a splash of red, glorifying the colour and its importance in Indian mythology,

"Red is the colour associated with the Goddess. Lakshmi wears red. Durga wears red. Red is blood. Red is menstrual fluid. It is the colour of the earth before the rains. It is the colour of life and fertility. Kumkum is the red colour made using saffron or turmeric. Sindoor is the red of the setting sun obtained on earth from cinnabar (lead oxide). These are worn by men as tilak and by women as bindi. These are the colours to smear images of Ganesha and Hanuman. Then there is Abir and Gulal, hurled into the sky, during the festival of Holi.. (they) all point to Holi being an ancient fertility festival....Only now a dirty industrial pink has overshadowed the blood red, and oil paints have replaced organic dyes, and balloons and piston ‘pichkari’ have replaced fistfuls of dry colour powder. Devdutt's interpretation of Holi is a refreshing take on the most colorful festival in Hindu mythology!! #HappyHoli

Riteish Deshmukh shared an image from his film Banjo, wishing his fans a safe Holi.

The entire star cast of Mubarakaan took to twitter to wish fans a very happy Holi. Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty recorded a special Holi messgae for the fans.

Well, looks like our celebrities never forget to wish their fans before heading out to celebrate any festival. Much love.
