Lohri is a Punjabi festival which is celebrated on January 13 every year. Though, popular belief has it that Lohri is celebrated to mark the end of peak winter, this festival is traditionally associated with the harvest of the Rabi crops.
Harbhajan and wife had welcomed their baby girl 'Hinaya Heer Plaha' last year on July 27, 2016. Geeta's delivery took place at a hospital in London.
The duo, who tied the knot in 2015, even revealed the name of their baby on social media in September 2016. Geeta Basra, who has taken a break from acting, was last seen in the Dharmendra starrer Punjabi film 'Second Hand Husband'.
Meanwhile, Harbhajan last played for India in 2015 against South Africa, where he had just managed to take one wicket.
Bhajji has been quite active in the social media of late and recently questioned Indian selectors for not considering Karun Nair for the upcoming three match one-day international series against England.
"Hello guys Wher is Karun Nair?? Who just scored 300 vs England..he isn't part of even practice games against Eng. Forget ODI. Wah kamal hai. (sic.)" said the veteran off-spinner.
