The festival is very close to Shreyas's heart, and the actor even tweeted saying, "Beheno - Happy Raksha Bandan. God bless u with lots of love, happiness, success and strength."
Shreyas seemed to enjoy with the kids present there.
He entered the venue to a thunderous applause from the kids, as they were happy to see him.
The event kick-started with the actor dancing with kids on famous Bollywood numbers.
Following the dance, the kids tied Rakhi to him and presented him with flowers.
In return, Shreyas gave them lots of chocolates and the event ended with an informal chat between the kids and Shreyas, where he answered few questions and told them the importance of education.
The actor also shared his experience from the industry.
Shreyas was touched by the love showered on him by the kids so much that he has decided to repeat this experience every year.
