The festival of Raksha Bandhan holds a special place in every Indian's hearts. It is one of the most revered festivals in India which celebrates the special bond between brother and sister. But, this celebration is not restricted to just brothers and sisters. Women also celebrate this auspicious occasion with their sisters and likewise for men.
Social media is flooded with posts, in which people are expressing their love and affection for their siblings. Our Bollywood celebrities are also celebrating Raksha Bandhan with their loved ones.
B-town stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and others extended their warm greetings to their fans on social media.
Sharing a picture collage of his kids, Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda, and grandchildren, Agastya Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan, Big B wrote, "and tomorrow be the festival of protection and security for the sister by the brother .. a pledge to be by her side, to hold her hand in times of trouble , to safeguard her from all evil that may erupt about and to let her know that no matter what he shall ever be by her side..Raksha Bandhan : ‘raksha' to protect ; ‘bandhan' to tie to bond to hold together. Our ‘samaaj' does possess centuries old traditions that make us all valuable .. in the essence of behavioural convictions .. such convictions that can never be betrayed or dissolved .. they are the crafted genius of writings on stone ..forever."
Sonam Kapoor's sister Rhea Kapoor posted a cute video featuring the Veere Di Wedding actress and her brother Harshvardhan Kapoor. She captioned it as, "Meri Wali Home Story Growing up with siblings is one of the greatest blessings in life. They are our first best friends and the foes we can't live without. The most beautiful aspect of the sibling relation, however, is that no matter how old you grow, how distant you stay, and how busy or stressed you are, even the thought of being with your sibling(s) in the safety of your house takes all the stress away. It is one of the most refreshing and overwhelming feelings. The same is the bond that I have shared with my siblings all through my life. We have been together, from being partners in crime to pillars of strength for each other. @square_yards gave us this beautiful chance to relive our memories and has motivated us to make new ones this Raksha Bandhan."
The actor shared a happy frame with his sisters, Namrata and Priya, and wrote, "Although younger to me, you two have always been my biggest support system, motivating me and being there for me throughout my life. I love you both so much. Happy Raksha Bandhan❤️ @priyadutt @namrata62."

It's not just a prayer, it's not just a song...it's what defines our boundless relation. You are not just my baby sister...u are my best friend when I need one, an elder sister when I feel like being a child again, a sounding board when I feel like venting and a brother so I never miss having one. We are everything to eachother and words fall short to describe our eternal bond. Happy Rakshabandhan to you! Here's to the multiple roles you play in my life...a sister, a brother, a friend and many more."

The best of both worlds in one package, that's how I'd like to describe you. It can be the entire world against us and I'll still be confident of winning with you by my side. You are a sister who always has my back and a brother who'll protect me at any cost. This Rakshabandhan I'd like to thank you for playing multiple roles in my life- a sister, a brother, a friend and many more."
