Anushka Sharma:

I hope we can practice the festival in a safe manner and not create nuisance for other people, have respect for your neighbours and enjoy the festival in the right spirit.

My best memory of Diwali is the food that used to be made in my house on Diwali, as my mother used to go all out to make the best food one could think off so after burning the fire crackers we would come back home to a good meal, it was the best way to end Diwali.

I have stopped bursting crackers around six to seven years ago as I think it is not good for the environment. Also the day I saw how my friends dog was petrified due to the firecrackers I just stopped bursting crackers for good as I felt it’s really unfair to the pets.

Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy and prosperous Diwali

Sarah Jane Dias:

My earliest memories of Diwali are of lighting phooljhadis in the building compound, nowadays it is so, that if I happen to fly out of Mumbai on Diwali eve, there’s nothing like watching fireworks when you are in the sky.

Diwali celebrations for me involves parties, the great food and yummy sweets and I also play the occasional card game.

I love the festival and watching my city light up for it’

Dia Mirza

‘Diwali for us at home has always been extra special! Given that Mom is called Deepa and I am called Dia 🙂 lighting the diya’s together each year is what forms some of the most cherished memories, one that we renew each year.

And since the last 6 years lighting and gifting diya’s made by the Cancer Patients Aid Association is what adds to the glow:) and that is the essence of Diwali for us. In doing a good deed we brighten our lives’.

Ranveer Singh:

Diwali for me means taking time off work to spend quality time with family and friends. We do a small pooja at home every year.

I don’t gamble, so I get quite bored at Diwali parties.

I play UNO with the kids of the house instead! I get perturbed by the pollution caused by fire crackers, so I don’t endorse them. What I love about the festival is that the general atmosphere is filled with cheer, homes are decorated and people all around are in a celebratory chill out mode, smiling and having a good time. The highlight of the whole shebang being , but of course , the MITHAIS!!!!!!

I think any kid in this country will remember all the food that you get to eat. My grandmother makes outstanding food at home during Diwali so that’s a memory that always lingers in my mind. Also as a kid I did burst crackers which I have stopped now, realising how much pollution it causes.

Off late I did learn the value of teen paati and I tried playing it and I have realised that I am not very good at it. I tend to lose more than I win so I stay away from it.

Of course eating sweets and doing the puja are other highlights of Diwali, earlier my grandfather used to sit and do the puja then I saw my father do it and last year I got to sit and do the Puja so it feels like time is progressing. Some very interesting memories that come with Diwali I think most importantly is the whole family coming together for that one night and just being around each other, having random conversations, enjoying good food and looking forward to spending a positive year thereafter.

This Diwali I plan on just taking a break and meeting my friends and family because all this while I have been working, so it will be a good time to catch up with everyone.

Soha Ali Khan:


As a child we lived in Delhi and Diwali would be celebrated in true dilli style at an opulent farmhouse party with an elaborate fireworks display, food, dance and merriment till the early hours of the morning…often trips to the hospital were included as someone inevitably burnt a hand or a foot setting of a rocket or a bomb! In recent years Diwali has taken on a less risky and more environmentally friendly tone – we light diyas in and outside the house, do a puja and eat sweets till we pop! No risk to life or limb – or nothing an antacid can’t take care of!

Kunal Khemmu:


‘As a kid I would wait to see what the crackers budget would be and compare that with friends and get ready to burst crackers with them, although with age I realised that it was not just a waste of money but the pollution both sound and air got more and more irritating. So now I look forward to lighting a few diya’s and a small pooja at home.’

Bhumika Chawla:

Diwali, the festival of lights is knocking at your doors and this is one of Bhumika?s favorite festival. The beautiful actress thinks that this is a very special time when you come together with your family and enjoy the festivity.

I will be celebrating this Diwali with family at Bangalore. The best thing that I love about Diwali is that we get to eat all the delicacies that we want. Please avoid bursting high decibel crackers as it may be harmful to both humans and animals.

As a responsible citizen of this country, I would like to add that most of the fire cracker industry use kids to make it, so I will be avoiding fire crackers.
