On the occasion of Guru Purnima, Bollywood actors took to Twitter and expressed gratitude for their teachers and mentors. While Amitabh Bachchan thanked his parents, Ayushmann Khurana expressed his gratitude for filmmaker Shoojit Sircar. Suniel Shetty thanked his mother for being the first and best teacher in his life.

Guru Purnima is the first full moon night after summer solstice. According to the Hindi calendar, it falls in the month of Aashad. The day holds importance since it sees people across India thank their ‘gurus’ or teachers.

Here’s a look at the Twitter timelines of Bollywood celebrities this Sunday:

Manisha Koirala advocated that everybody should have a master in his or her life to attain peace and tranquility. The 46-year-old actress told ANI, “I’m here to take blessings from my master on the occasion of Guru Purnima. I am inclined to spirituality for many years, but from the past three to four years, the inclination has increased even more. I go to two places for my peace of mind - one is at a university near Chennai and the other one is in Haridwar to have blessings from Pilot Baba.”

Apart from Hindus, Buddhists also observe the day to express their gratitude towards their teacher.

In the Indian culture, many claim the day came to being with yogis worshiping Sage Ved Vyas who penned down the four vedas, deeply revered by Hindus across the world.
