Priyanka Chopra And Nick Jonas Take Holi ‘Very Seriously’ In Amusing Photos
The “Krrish” actress and her sweetheart seemed to be having the best time as they celebrated Holi on Wednesday, March 8, months after marking the annual festival of lights, Diwali.
On Instagram, she wished those partaking in the holiday a “Happy Holi” and shared a picture of herself and Jonas soaked in different paint colors in honor of the day. The “Camp Rock” alum was captured as he was about to throw paint on his wife while she had a comical expression with her mouth wide open.
Both movie stars donned shorts and a shirt while they were totally drenched in green, blue, yellow, and purple paint from head to toe. The background showed they were snapped in a yard with a table behind them, covered with a colorful blanket.
After sending a goodwill message to fellow celebrators, Chopra wrote, “As u can tell, we take it very seriously [laughing heart emoji],” indicating how invested the couple was in the Holi celebrations.
According to reportys, Holi, the Hindu festival of colors, is honored every spring by people around the globe who throw colored water and powders on each other in a delightful celebration.
It is the full-moon day of the Hindu month of Phalguna, and “societal rankings are eschewed in the spirit of making merry together,” with everyone being a target to be drenched with colorful water.
The festival’s traditions vary nationwide and are well rooted in Indian mythology. In a number of locations, Holi is associated with the fable of Hiranyakashipu, a demon king in ancient India. Hiranyakashipu used his sister Holika’s help to murder his son Prahlada, a devout worshipper of Vishnu, a Hindu deity.
However, things went sideways when Holika tried to burn Prahlada by sitting with him on a pyre, wearing a fame-resistant cloak, but instead, the cloak protected Prahlada. Later that night, Vishnu killed Hiranyakashipu, and this has been seen over the years as a triumph of good over evil, leading many places in India to mark Holi by lighting a large pyre the night before the festival.
On the other hand, Krishna and Radha’s narrative is predominant in other places, establishing the concept of colored water and powder throwing.
Krishna is a Hindu deity who fell in love with the fair-skinned milkmaid, Radha but was embarrassed about his dark blue skin, causing him to paint her face during a game playfully.
