Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan, among others, today extended their warm wishes to fans on Holi, most of them appealing to the fans not to waste water this festival. Director Ram Gopal Varma, however, hit a discordant note in the morning, when he posted a string of tweets on his account, saying most people have no idea why they celebrate the festival. Another tweet on his account read thus: “The only HAPPY thing about HOLI is,it gives an elders approved excuse to ogle young girls in wet clothes n feel them wthout getting slapped.”
