Some are spending it with family while others are busy working even on the big day. The one thing Bollywood does have in common, though, is that they’re all looking forward to having a blast this Diwali.
“I wish that my family, my parents, Saif (Ali Khan) and his kids — Sara and Ebrahim — could all be together. Saif is in London, his kids are in Delhi; my niece and nephew are also in Delhi. I wish we could all be together, but work comes first”
"I went shopping for candles and diyas for my house and for John (Abraham). But, I am upset that I won’t be in India on the festival. I will be in Brisbane for the rehearsals of Singularity. I like being home during festivals."
"I’ll be with my family and then Shilpa (Shetty) and Raj (Kundra) have called me to their place in Mumbai, so I’ll go there to celebrate the festival."
"Diwali is my favourite festival. I am taking an off and spending the festival with my wife Natasha and family. Later, we’ll have dinner with friends and family."
"My father’s marked verse on the Ramayana shall be read; sweets and bonuses shall be disbursed to staff by members of the family. We’ll finish our Diwali puja and light the first lamp."
"I have no specific Diwali plans. I’m going to miss my sister this Diwali because she is studying in Australia, but I will spend the day with my friends."
"My son has bronchitis problem, and will not be able to tolerate the pollution during Diwali, so I am going out of Mumbai.
I’ll be back after the festival is over."
