Hrithik to skip Holi celebrations for a cause

Actor Hrithik Roshan has decided to stay away from Holi celebrations in view of the prevailing water shortage in Maharashtra.

The 39-year-old will not waste water by being part of the Holi celebrations.

"Hrithik won’t be celebrating Holi as a mark of solidarity with those who are suffering from acute water shortage in Maharashtra. Instead, he will only use only a small amount of gulaal to apply a shagun tika as part of the traditional ritual," a source said.

The actor is also said to have decided not to play with too much of dry gulaal, as washing it off requires a lot of water.

"Like Hrithik, even the other members of the Roshan family will keep the celebrations low-key. They will take part in the morning puja and then spend some quiet time together," the source said.
