Catch your favorite TV actors celebrating Diwali and what special they do on this day. Here it is what they have to say about this auspicious day.
Dalljiet Kaur: I was born on Diwali morning so that’s why my name is Deepa. I am obviously close to this festival. I love to make a rangoli, decorate my house with candles and diyas and clean up my house. I love inviting my friends over too. Playing cards is not allowed at my place. I have tried playing at my friend’s place but I am pathetic at it, so I just help my friends in cheating. I will definitely eat whatever comes my way as it’s my birthday!
Ssharad Malhotra: Diwali means to love and celebration. This Diwali is special as this is my first Diwali with my wife Ripci. We are celebrating Diwali in Mumbai itself with friends. I have no plans to diet, I am going to splurge on Bengali sweets especially good Sondesh and Rasgullas. And according to me, during festivals, one shouldn’t diet.
Mrunal Jain: Diwali is a festival full of lights and colors. It brings family and friends closer. For me, it’s a festival full of new beginnings. This year as I have work commitments, I would be working on the day of Diwali. We follow the ritual of doing Laxmi Poojan followed by a family dinner. I even go to greet my friends and family. I have a lot of homemade sweets. I follow Jainism, so I don’t believe in the culture of bursting crackers. I do attend card parties at my friends and relative’s place, but I don’t play cards as I am not really fond of it. I don’t diet during festivals, I eat what I want to, and workout harder so that it doesn’t affect my body.
Shashank Vyas: This Diwali, like every year, would be celebrated with my father and friends. I would go out with friends, also catch up on the latest film. I like the festive spirit. Weather is also good and to see the happiness on everyone’s face perks me up with joy.
