Holi is here! The ‘festival of colours’ has finally arrived and on the auspicious occasion, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta on Sunday treated fans to some throwback pictures as she sent out warm wishes to her family, friends and fans. The actress, who is currently in Mumbai, posted a couple of throwback pictures of herself with husband Gene Goodenough from their previous Holi celebrations. She took to Twitter and shared the colourful photos as that’s one of the many ways to ‘keep the spirit of Holi alive’ amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first post was a selfie clicked by Zinta with her husband Gene Goodenough as the duo smilingly posed for the picture with their faces smeared with colours. Sending out good wishes on the auspicious occasion, the ‘Veer Zaara’ actor wrote, “#HappyHoli everyone. May this festival of colours add the colour of happiness, health & positivity to all our lives. “
Stating that there is no Holi celebration this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the actor said that she is putting out last year’s photo to keep the spirit of Holi alive. “Feels strange 2 have No Holi celebration this yr due 2 d pandemic..so I’m putting up some previous Holi pics 2 keep d spirit of Holi alive. #Patiparmeshwar #ting.
