Shah Rukh celebrates Rakhi with vow to respect women


Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Sunday celebrated the annual Indian festival of Raakhi by delivering a message that concerns women.

The Indian film star took to popular micro-blogging site Twitter to share photos of him and his children celebrating Raakhi.

“Raakhi done…with a promise in the family to respect all women. Respect for women will make u inspired, make u tender hearted & morally strong. Happy Raakhi to all ye bros out there…& respect to all sisters,” Khan tweeted.


Rakhi also is known as Raksha Bandhan is an annual Hindu rite which is centred around the tying of a thread or talisman on the wrist as a form of ritual protection.

The protection is offered principally by sisters to brothers.
