Ajay Devgn, who recently shot his next directorial Bholaa in Benaras, shares pictures of a maha aarti and writes: 'Sometimes a director waits for one, that one unreal, mesmeric frame... and one day it just happens.

'That was the day I was filming the Maha Aarti sequence at Benaras. I felt an overwhelming magic that can only be experienced and seldom articulated.

'The spiritual energy of the place and the electrifying aura of the people all came together in one frame!'

'On the auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri, I share frames from my movie Bholaa. Seek the magic and you will see it... हर हर महादेव!'

Amy Jackson is shooting for Tamil film, and shares a picture with her friend Pavithra.

'Just touched down in Chennai for the final stages of filming and massively felt the urge to reflect and pray. I asked the driver to look out for a temple on the way to set, unknowing that today was Maha Shivratri.

'When we did come across one, it was bang on 6 pm which is when the final pooja of the festival commences.

'The energy inside was undeniable -- instantly I felt whole and at peace.

'It just made me realise that God, The Source, The Universe... really does hold all the answers. Happy Maha Shivratri to all my Hindu faith friends.'
