India is truly a land of festivals. Here every festival is celebrated with the same zeal and excitement. When we talk about movies, our Indian festivals are given importance even on the silver screens. In fact, there are several movies where festivals like Diwali, Holi, Ganesh Chaturthi, etc. enhance the impact of the scene. As we are celebrating Janmashtami today and Dahi Handi tomorrow, let’s take a look at a few movies which had highlighted Dahi Handi in their sequences.

OMG: Oh My God!

This Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal starrer movie made its way straight into the hearts of the people.
