Diwali is here and everyone is enjoying this festival with lights, rangoli and sweets. Each one of us has a unique way to celebrate Diwali and so does actors, Babbar brothers Aarya and Prateik are in festive spirits. Babbar brothers get nostalgic as they share about their Diwali plans and more.
Excerpts from the interview:
What are you Diwali plans?
Aarya Babbar: I would be at home with my family. We will have traditional Laxmi Pooja, post which we will have a small Diwali get together at home.
Prateik: I will be celebrating Diwali with my family.
Any childhood memories with this festival?
Aarya: I remember as a kid burning a Diwali bomb in my hand and then throwing it in the air. I almost got injured, and then that I realized that it was stupid, dangerous and really not needed.
Prateik: We burst a lot of fire crackers as kids, indulged in great food and awesome family time together!
Any message for noiseless and pollution free Diwali?
Aarya: Diwali is a time when Ram ji came back after 14 years to his family and all he wanted was to meet every family member of his, spread love among them and gain positivity. I don't think he ever said blast a 5 km cracker, spread pollution. Diwali simply is a time to be with your family, to be with the ones you love.
Prateik: Noise and a pollution free Diwali is what I believe in, so light a Diya. Don't burn fire crackers! Destroy pollution. Make less noise! Be smart! Help the environment!
Here's wishing everyone a very happy Diwali!
