Actress Sonam Kapoor wants her fans to use regular thread while flying kites on Makar Sankranti instead of glass coated manja. Sonam, 27, who is a fan of kite flying, said, "I am all for celebrating the festival just feels we should use regular manja so that we don't hurt birds."
The manja, which has a glass coating, is very effective during the kite flying but it is not good for birds that get slashed, wounded and killed when they become entangled in it.
"We should fly kites with good old regular manja that has no glass coating. This would help minimize the damage that is caused to birds," she added.
