After Krishna avatar, Lalu Yadav's son dons Lord Shiva look
Former Bihar Health Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tej Pratap Yadav, (in)famous for his dress-ups and theatrics, donned the attire of Lord Shiva on Tuesday. Yadav, who is the eldest son of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, dressed-up as Lord Shiva while offering prayers at a Shiva Temple in Patna in the ongoing Shravan month. Here are more details.
Yadav was seen entering the temple with bodyguards and supporters, dressed with fake tiger skin, rudraksha and body smeared with sandalwood paste. He was also seen wearing Hindu rosaries around his neck and hands. Often viewed as inexpert against his younger, politically-savvy brother, Tejashwi Yadav, the RJD leader has been in the news for his attires more often than he did for politics.
In July 2018, too, Yadav had dressed up as Lord Shiva while offering prayers at a Shiva temple in Patna, before heading off on a pilgrimage to Deoghar's Baba Baidyanath Dham. Even before he married Aishwarya Rai, party legislator Chandrika Rai's daughter, in May 2018, Yadav donned the avatar of Lord Shiva in posters plastered across Patna and Aishwarya was shown as Parvati.
Back in 2017, Yadav had also dressed up as Lord Krishna, sporting a dhoti-kurta, a blue jacket, a grey shawl, along with a red turban, a peacock feather, as he played the flute. That's not the end of his theatrics. He has even acted in a Bhojpuri movie Apaharan Udyog and will make his Bollywood debut with Rudra: The Avatar.
