Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Suriya wish fans a very Happy Tamil New Year 2019

Happy Puthandu 2019 to all Tamilians across the world! Puthandu - the Tamil New Year - will be celebrated on April 14. Puthandu, also known as Puthuvarusham, falls on as the first day of Tamil month Chithirai. On this day, Tamilians wish each other 'Puthandu vazthukal' (Happy New Year). The Tamil calendar has a sixty-year-cycle, each year with a unique name. The Tamil New Year 2017 will be called 'Vilambi.' A massive Puthandu celebration is held in Madurai's Meenakshi temple, Tiruchirapalli, Kanchipuram and several other places. Traditionally, people dress-up in new clothes and decorate their homes. A tray with three fruits - mango, banana and jack fruit, betel leaves and areca nut, gold/silver jewelry, and mirrors is kept in the puja room.

Now, right from  Rajinikanth to Kamal Haasan and many other Tamil stars took to Twitter and wished their fans 'Happy Tamil New Year."

Actor Suriya chose the day to share a poster of his upcoming film with K.V. Anand while composer A.R. Rahman put out devotion song "Sai Shirdi Sai".

"Like they say, you don't compose a song, the song composes you... Here it is, celebrate your Tamil New Year's Day with 'Sai Shirdi Sai'."

Hansika Motwane, Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth, Rupa Manjari and Esha Deol were other actors to share their wishes.

"Wishing my Tamil audience a very happy New Year," tweeted Kajal. Siddharth wrote: "Tamil New Year. Peace and love."

Rupa shared: "May God bless you all a life full of sunshine and peace always. Happy Tamil New Year."
