New Delhi: On the first day of the new year (and new decade), prominent celebrities are ringing in 2020 with resolutions, nostalgia and even some activism. From Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan to Virat Kohli, everyone had something to say.

After being awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke award, Indian cinema’s highest honour, Amitabh Bachchan posted a picture with his wife, actor and MP Jaya Bachchan, and four grandchildren. He even quoted some lines of poetry by his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

If the shahenshah of Bollywood is all about family in his wishes, the badshah, Shahrukh Khan, who has been lambasted quite a bit for his silence over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, tweeted out a rather cryptic New Year’s message. One wonders if he is simply hoping for kindness in 2020, or is commenting on his silence.

Deepika Padukone is quite busy with her upcoming film Chhapaak, which is due to be released this month, and is not wasting any opportunity to promote the movie, including in her New Year’s post.

Priyanka Chopra made life easier for everyone and posted a video that took a trip down the memory lane, highlighting the key moments of her life in the past year, including that famous Met Gala look.

The fire of activism continues to rage in Swara Bhaskar as her New Year’s resolution is to continue her fight to “defend” the Constitution.

Director Anurag Kashyap was not far behind, as his New Year’s wish revolved around Prime Minister Modi getting ears to listen to the voices of people, and some wisdom.

Bhumi Pednekar had quite a successful 2019 with three hit films — Saand Ki Aankh, Bala, and Pati, Patni Aur Woh. No wonder she is ringing in the new year with a long message of gratitude.

Cause life is all about beautiful moments and the last decade gave me so many. It gave me life experiences that have made me stronger. It took away a lot of people I love and that vacuum can never be filled 🙂 But it also gave me an opportunity to chase my dream and it gave me all of you,my family that keeps showering me with such love. It gave me people that have been nothing less than angels in my life and I can’t thank you enough for supporting and loving me like your own. Am living my dream in every way possible. Am full of gratitude and feel blessed to have my loved ones happy and healthy. The next decade is only going to be better. To a better world and a happier you 😘 #2019 #2020 #gratitude #happynewyear #happy2020 #BPTravels

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli posted a pretty “on point” picture as he welcomed 2020.

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar seemed to get nostalgic this New Year as he shared a heartwarming video of a young boy playing cricket with his friends. Perhaps, he was remembering his own gully cricket days.

Shuttler P.V. Sindhu paid an ode to “same dreams” and “fresh starts” with her New Year’s message.
