Diwali is the triumph of good over bad, knowledge over fear and love over hatred. These are the reasons why I feel we can celebrate Diwali every day. I look forward to meeting as many people as possible and bask in the positivity during this occasion. Waiting to hog on to the sweets, it’s like you are waiting for the delicacies and thinking when the satyanarayan puja is going to get over. It’s my favourite childhood memory of the festival.

For me Diwali means a fresh start. Leaving behind the bad and taking all the good ahead. My Diwali will be celebrated on the set with my lovely co-stars and the team. The Diwali that I had spent as a child with my friends has always been memorable.

It’s my most favourite festival, I just love the deepawali vibes. It gives me so much happiness… By the way, this is the only time of the year when I am actually interested in cleaning up my house. I don’t want to burst crackers because it’s harmful for the environment and not good for our own health. Like every year, we will do a Mahalaxmi puja, I will make rangoli with my mommy and obviously I will get to eat so many delicious sweets. I am so happy and excited because usually my mom doesn’t let me eat sweets and unhealthy stuff, but during Diwali she won’t stop me. There’s not any particular memory but I can say that every year this festival brings so much joy and I love every bit of it. Each and every Deepawali so far has been unique and memorable in its own way.
