Sonam Kapoor has stated that she would prefer it if her fans used normal thread when they were flying kites for Makar Sankranti instead of using glass coated manja.
The 27 year old actress is quite the fan of flying kites herself. She said that she was going to be celebrating the festival herself but wanted people to use regular manja to ensure that birds are not hurt by the glass manja.
This glass coated manja is excellent for flying kites but it is bad for birds as they tend to get wounded & killed because of getting knotted in it.
She added that flying kites with regular manja would go a large way in minimizing the damage which befalls birds on this festival.
