Popular showbiz celebrities like Vishal Dadlani, Archana Puran Singh and Niya Sharma are looking forward to celebrate Diwali with their family, and they will put their fitness diets aside to binge on sweets and homemade dishes for the festival of lights.
The celebrities also urged fans to celebrate a cracker-free Diwali.
Here’s what they plan to do:
Vishal Dadlani: “To me, Diwali means family. A time of love, light and celebrations with those who one loves the most. Diwali memories are always happy ones. Puja at home, followed by prasad, even for non-believers like me.”
Archana Puran Singh: “Diwali is a beautiful festival of lights and colours which I enjoy spending with my family and dear friends. We believe in celebrating a cracker-free Diwali and I urge everyone to support the environment by celebrating a cracker-free Diwali. I am looking forward to eating poori aloo and homemade sweets of every size, shape and flavour.”
Kartikey Malviya: “This Diwali will be special for me as for two years I was not able to celebrate the festival with my family due to a busy shoot schedule. But this time, I will be with them. I don’t like bursting crackers on Diwali as its waste of money and creates noise pollution. Instead I buy sweets with that money and share the happiness with orphan children.”
Paridhi Sharma: “The preparations of Diwali start a month ago, meticulously cleaning the entire home, preparing sweets, decorating home, lighting up, Rangoli, Lakshmi puja and the most important part of Diwali is to be with my family and my husband. I always make sure to buy gifts for all our family members.”
Toral Rasputra: “Diwali is one of my favourite festivals. Being Gujarati, we make Gujarati snacks like dhokla, namkeen and laddoo. My sister-in-law and I make Rangoli and decorate our home. In the evening we light lots of diyas.”
Niya Sharma: “Every year, I celebrate Diwali by myself at my place. I enjoy making beautiful Rangolis, light diyas and treat myself with mouth-watering sweets. Since the festival is all about spreading love and happiness, it is a humble request to avoid bursting crackers as it harms the environment and causes global warming as well.”
Nikhil Khurana: “For me, the festival of Diwali is all about getting together with family and friends, chilling with them and relaxing. It is a nice time to catch up with everyone and spend time together. I don’t really believe in bursting crackers, not only because I am an environmentalist, but also because I feel that the festival is more about lights, sweets and togetherness.”
