The festival of lights holds a special place in everyone’s heart. While some may get reminded of a warm Diwali from their childhood days, for some it is a happy time as they get to celebrate with their loved ones. And our favourite celebrities are no different; just like us, the festival is a chance for them to get away from the hectic routine of everyday life and, more importantly, go back to the warmth and love of a family atmosphere. So, on the occasion of the festival that marks Lord Rama and Sita’s return to their kingdom, stars spell out what the festival looks like for them this year.

Craving family time
Diwali is about meeting friends and family and having a feast together — good, big family dinners, making rangolis, decorating the house with diyas, lights and thanking god for whatever we have been blessed with. This Diwali, I will fly down home from between my schedule and go to Delhi and have a lovely meal with my family and relatives. I will make rangoli with my sister and decorate the house with diyas. I light diyas and candles and concentrate on spending time with the family instead of spreading noise and air pollution.

Home beckons
Every year, we celebrate Diwali in Chandigarh with family and this year also, I am going to Chandigarh.  I don’t burst crackers. My cousins used to indulge in these things and I used to stop them. I have always been socially aware and air pollution is a huge problem. I believe as shagun you could burst one or two crackers.

Colours galore
I was very busy for the last two years, thus I could not celebrate Diwali. But this year, I have some time, so I am happy. I will celebrate the festival with my parents, relatives and friends. I would definitely prefer celebrating an ‘eco-friendly Diwali’, and would also request one and all to celebrate diwali without crackers. Oh and yes, one thing I love doing is making rangolis and I will spend some quality time making colourful rangolis.       .
