Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan intends to join Janmasthmi celebrations that are in full swing across India.

Shah Rukh Khan, who has wooed his fans courtesy Chennai Express, will turn Govinda for this year's Janmashtmi celebrations.

Reportedly, the 47-year-old actor has agreed to be a part of the Janmashtami celebrations at Jambori Maidan in Mumbai. He may even break the Dahi Handi!

In the past, celebrities like Hrithik Roshan, Akshay Kumar, Emraan Hashmi have also taken part in the Dahi Handi game.

Govinda or Dahi Handi is a sport organised on Krishna Janmashtami to celebrate the birth of Krishna. It is very popular in Mumbai and surrounding area of Thane.

Govinda players gather together under Dahi Handi to making a human pyramid to catch and then break an earthen pot hung high in the air with the help of a rope.

The players are known as Govindas or Bal Gopals.

The sport is based on the legends about Krishna stealing makhan (butter) or dahi (curd) from handis.
