India, Feb. 12 -- Valentine's Day celebrations in the Delhi University campus can't be complete without talk of Hindu College's Virgin Tree - where a picture of a Bollywood celebrity is put up to be worshipped as the 'Damdami Mai'. The tradition, started by students of the boy's hostel, has been opposed by some students who say it is misogynistic.

Meanwhile, students say they'd like to see Alia Bhatt or Sara Ali Khan as Damdami Mai this year. "The boys' hostel students decide on the night of February 13," says a student. Asra, a final-year student says she wants "Alia Bhatt as Damdami Mai and Vicky Kaushal as the Love Guru". Bhavya Kapoor, another third-year student, says, "I want Janhvi Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana."
