The infamous Saifai Mahotsav – defined by Wikipedia as the annual controversial event of Etawah – is back and so are the Bollywood stars! The entertainment event was plagued with controversy in 2013 when Akhilesh Yadav, the Uttar Pradesh CM and also the organizer, was heavily ridiculed for holding the event even after the state suffered during the horrific Muzzaffar Nagar riots earlier that year.
Thankfully, the event hasn’t run into any sort of controversy this year, but the long list of Bollywood heavyweights descending in the small town of Etawah has caused quite a stir on the Internet.
Here’s a sneak peek into the high profile event that Saifai Mohotsav is:
Bollywood stars were in high spirits even before touching base.
And received a warm welcome by the host and CM of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav.
Kareena Kapoor performed at the event in her full splendour.
And also posed happily with her Ki & Ka co-star, Arjun Kapoor.
