Prominent stars like Madhuri Dixit Nene, megastar Amitabh Bachchan were a few to name to extended their heartfelt wishes on a special day.
Bollywood's ever-charming and versatile actress, Madhuri Dixit Nene shared a positive saying by Gautam Budha which she feels gets implied in today's time of crisis.

Apart from Madhuri, to celebrate the special occasion, Amitabh Bachchan shared a picture of a huge idol of Lord Budha made of gold from one of the temples. In the caption, the Baghban actor wished all his fans on the auspicious occasion.

It is said that Lord Buddha, who was born as Prince Siddhartha Gautam, was born today. He was born at Lumbini (now in modern-day Nepal) around 563 BC. On this auspicious day, the lord is remembered with love. This day usually falls April or May months according to the Gregorian calendar. This year we will not be able to get to the worship places due to lockdown, so here are some Buddha Purnima wishes in English which you can send to your friend and family on this day.
