Hyderabad ka ‘Shahenshah’ to grace Sadar festival

Hyderabad: The stars of the festival, which will be held on October 21, have already reached the city, with Shahenshah, standing out at nearly seven feet and weighing about 1,500 kilos, to be the main attraction this year.

Their huge, towering frames overhelming under the shiny, well-oiled skin, their heads seen above even most six-footers on the street, these bulls are all set to capture the public’s imagination this Saturday.

The surroundings of Satarbagh in Musheerabad have already turned festive, with the city’s Yadav community gearing up to celebrate ‘Sadar’, the bull carnival that has recently been declared an official State festival.

The stars of the festival, which will be held on October 21, have already reached the city, with Shahenshah, standing out at nearly seven feet and weighing about 1,500 kilos, to be the main attraction this year.
