Kangana Ranaut's digital team took to the micro-blogging site to wish her fans and shared a series of tweets on behalf of the 'Manikarnika' actress.
"They say how can an intellectual like me be a Bhakt?When I understood there are more galaxies in this universe than the amount of atoms on this planet,I decided I can only be a Fan/Devotee/Bhakt of this magic,every other belief is dellusion/ arrogance - KR," they tweeted.
Another tweet read, "Krishna is the only fashionista incarnation of God ha ha he loved decorating himself with peacock feathers, flowers and yellow silk, he played flute and danced like a celestial being, what to say about Krishna he is not God he is a doorway to madness"
In another tweet, Ranaut revealed, "For me the most fascinating aspect of Krishna’s personality remains his relationships with women not just Radha, Rukmani or gopis but even with his mothers,he gave his own name to Draupadi, only time he actively participated in Mahabharata when Kauravas tried to strip her - KR"
"Of all the places I have visited on this planet, Dwarika remains the most fascinating and enchanting, in-fact it’s not even a place it’s a little cluster of unnamed ecstatics -KR," shared the actress.
