Akshay Kumar wished his fans in a hilarious way by posting a widely-circulated picture:
Actress Madhuri Dixit posted a picture of herself sitting next to the statue of Lord Shiva.
Sonam Kapoor also a picture of Lord Shiva on Instagram, captioned: "Lord Shiva is the protector and regenerator of universe and all life. On Mahashivratri I'd like to celebrate goddess Parvati, lord Shiva's 'shakti' she is the recreative energy and power of Shiva, and she is the cause of a bond that connects all beings and a means of their spiritual release."
Maha Shivratri marks remembrance of overcoming darkness and ignorance in life. It is also significant because this is the day that Lord Shiv and Goddess Parvati got married.
Happy Maha Shivratri, folks!
