Nice spotting Vividha. This is most likely the Indian moon moth (actias selene), as luna moths aren't found in India :)

Love the Luna moth! Where did you see this one, since they aren't native to India. Please take a minute to fill in the Notes and the Description when you make the spotting, this helps a lot.
