We may have seen kids wanting to name their toys after Bollywood
heroes, but what's unusual is to see goats being named after
superstars. It's quite amusing to know that goat sellers in Delhi
named their best goats after the top actors such as Shahrukh khan
Khan. This was special offer on the occasion of Bakrid which
was celebrated on October 16.
The goat-sellers did this to make maximum sales and profits.
They chose the best looking and muscular goats and named them after
the Khans of Bollywood. The prices for these star goats ranged from
Rs 15,000 to 5 lakhs. A seller made a huge profit by selling his
star goat for a whooping amount. "I named my healthiest goat Salman
Khan and it sold for Rs 1,35,000," said Chand of Arshad Halal Meat
Although we may assume that this trend of naming goats after
Bollywood stars is new, the sellers tell us otherwise. We hear that
this took place even in the past years. In 2012, a pair of goats
named Saifeena (star couple Saif Ali Khan And Kareena Kapoor) were
sold for Rs 4 lakhs at Jama Masjid.
The sellers said that they get their goats from Bulandshahar.
These goats are healthy, have a glossy coat without any deformities
and marks. These goat-sellers even decorate these star goats with
accessories to attract customers. They paint the horns of the goats
in bright colours and tie colourful leashes and anklets.
