Amidst the novel Coronavirus, people on Monday celebrated Rakshabandhan with their brothers and sisters. However, this year, it was a low-key affair. With all the necessary precautions, everyone shared and flaunted their bond with their loved ones. Bollywood celebs also joined the bandwagon and made sure that they shared the festive fervour with fans on social media. Many celebs, including Vicky Kaushal, Kartik Aaryan and Arjun Rampal, shared photos from their celebrations.

Sharing a selfie in which he is seen sporting all the rakhis sent by his cousin sisters, he wrote, “#happyrakshabandhan Feels really odd not being able to see all my sisters this year but to love them and protect them means not seeing them…..so be it. Miss my sisters.”
