Allu Sirish, Ramesh Aravind, Sunil, Adivi Sesh, Rakul Preet, Ramya and some other southern stars have wished their fans on Krishna Janmashtami, which is also known as Krishnashtami and Gokulashtami.

Krishnashtami is the celebration of the birth of Lord Krishna and this festival is celebrated every year on the eighth day of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in the Shravana (August–September) month, according to the Hindu calendar.
