The Covid-19 for positive has modified loads of issues since March this 12 months, and it’s Diwali time already. The competition has at all times been related to events, get-togethers and lavish celebrations, however this time, Bollywood ceebs are choosing smaller but intimate gatherings with household at house.
Listed here are a few of them spilling the beans on how the pandemic has, or not, affected their Diwali plans:
It appears to be a working Diwali for me this time round. Celebrations will likely be completely different. I hope persons are being cautious and will likely be accountable. The pandemic may be very a lot there, it’s not gone wherever, I will likely be very cautious. Simply because we now have began stepping out for work doesn’t imply normalcy has come again.
I’m usually at varied Diwali events I attend yearly. I like that affair, going there to have a good time and revel in with them, which could not occur this 12 months. So personally, we will’t be in one other’s area or home, or wherever it occurs, we will a minimum of be in spirit with one another. I don’t suppose that ought to die or dampen. That is why I really feel adapting is the very best a part of the scenario. You may sit and say ‘what a boring Diwali, I’m so unhappy about it’, or you’ll be able to say ‘no, gentle diyas, and have a good time with whoever is round you’, like my dad, mother, grandmother and my cat.
I’m not a really large celebration particular person anyway, and at all times have a good time it in a low key method. That’s the way it’s going to be at house. You must get pleasure from it at house with your loved ones, and it’s precisely the way it’s going to be this 12 months.
Historically, we have a good time Diwali with our close to and expensive ones from the fraternity, we invite folks house. However this 12 months, it’s not that as we had a couple of deaths within the household. Add to that, other than the truth that we will’t have a big gathering both, it is going to be insensitive when the nation has gone via such tough couple of months, to exit and have a good time. This 12 months’s Diwali will likely be particular because it’s a household affair, all of us will do Laxmi puja within the night, as we at all times do, and spend the night collectively.
I’m at present in Himachal capturing for my subsequent mission and making my festivities all of the extra particular for me will likely be my household. My youngsters will likely be becoming a member of me right here and we may have our small, cozy celebration right here. For me, festivals are all about spending time with household and family members, therefore we’re ensuring that doesn’t change this 12 months both. We will certainly watch out and take all the required precautions for the reason that pandemic hasn’t gotten over but. However sure, a pleasant candy, little celebration is what we now have deliberate for this 12 months.”

Diwali will likely be simply excellent, as a result of the household will all be collectively. It’s the way you take a look at it. It’s extra particular as a result of we now have our personal little Laxmi, Samisha with us, and it’s her first Diwali! It is going to be low key, and no card social gathering in fact, sadly or visiting anybody However I’ve executed checks earlier than and after each shoot, or even when I’ve visited anybody.
