As a kid, I loved Diwali because there was no school. Now, I love the festival for different reasons. It’s the season when you spend quality time with your family and loved ones, and eat loads of sweets. But what we shouldn’t miss out on is the positivity and happiness during the Diwali celebrations. I wish everyone a happy and positive Diwali.
Diwali is always a special day, for many reasons. Most of my films release on Diwali and I don’t know if it’s because of Diwali that my films do well, or the fact that my films do well that makes Diwali special. I just know that the day is always special. So here’s wishing everyone a happy Diwali!
— Shah Rukh Khan
I would like to wish all the readers a very happy and fun Diwali. Make sure that this Diwali is even more dhamakedar. Have a great time with your friends and family and enjoy every bit of the festival. Lots of love!
— Sonakshi Sinha
“I wish everyone a very happy and safe Diwali. Please burn less crackers and burn whatever you do from a safe distance. Celebrate Diwali peacefully and make it memorable for you and your family.”
— Ranbir Kapoor
“My best wishes and warm Diwali greetings to all the readers. Light the diyas, enjoy the sweets, but in small portions. Have loads of fun, be safe and please ensure the safety of others. It’s a delightful occasion and should remain that way — light, warm and fun-filled.”
“Every Diwali is my favourite as I love the festival. I love dressing up for it. Here’s wishing all the readers a grand Diwali. Have fun and enjoy yourself with your family. Four years ago, Eid, Diwali and my birthday fell on the same day; and it was a multiple celebration. Every festival should be enjoyed to the fullest.”
I’d like to wish everyone a very happy Diwali. I hope that all of you meet your friends and all those who are close to you, and spend time with them. Above all, I hope you have a safe Diwali.
— Madhuri Dixit
I wish all readers a very happy Diwali. Laugh, smile and have lots of fun with your loved ones. Be safe, and have a prosperous Diwali.
