People celebrate the ancient Hindu festival by indulging in playful colour fights by throwing gulal at each other. Holi celebrations start a night before the Holi with Holika Dahan, where people gather to perform religious rituals in front of a bonfire and pray that their internal evils are destroyed.
Amul in past have posted advertisements on occasions like Aam Aadmi Party's election victory in Delhi, US President Donald Trump's India visit, India's evacuation of students from coronavirus-hit Wuhan and recent Delhi violence among others. Amul recently posted a precautionary advertisement to warn people over coronavirus outbreak where it urged them to stay clean with a message that read, "Better saaf than sorry!".
