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 and Salman 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 Shop.
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.
