"Wishing our Hindu community a very happy and peaceful Holi, the festival of colours," Khan said in a tweet.
The festival of Holi marks the end of winter and the start of spring. The festival is also known as the "festival of colours" or the "festival of love".
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairperson of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), also took to twitter to wish people on Holi.
"Happy Holi to all my Hindu brothers and sisters. On the happy occasion of Holi, let us spread the wonderful massage of peace and happiness," he wrote.
