Mahashivratri on the tube

New Delhi, Feb. 27 -- Television stars are celebrating the spirit of Lord Shiva by ringing in Mahashivratri on the sets of their shows. On the occasion of the festival today, while some entertainment shows have introduced story tracks to celebrate the festival, some stars performed the puja with the entire crew.    

The team Devon ke Dev... Mahadev, a mythological epic that takes viewers through the tale of Lord Shiva, came together in a spiritual gathering to spread happiness and good wishes on the sets. Actor Mohit Raina, along with co-star Mouni Roy and producer Nikhil Sinha, offered prayers to the almighty. Mohit and Mouni came together for the first time to perform the Mahashivratri puja.    

"I've been celebrating Mahashivratri since my childhood and have many fond memories of the occasion. Whatever I am today, is because of Him (Lord Shiva) and I'm grateful for that," said Mohit.    

Another TV show, Uttaran, will see the onscreen characters of the show celebrate the festival in a soon-to-be-aired episode.

Also, religious channel Aastha will feature a special programme from 6pm to 6am, in which Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, the founder of Isha Foundation, will lead the audience through several preparatory spiritual processes and initiate them into meditation. There will also be a performance by Pandit Jasraj, Shri Ashit Desai and Rajasthan Roots.
