Actor Kiara Advani who is basking in the glory of success, post her latest release MS Dhoni says, this Diwali is going to be super special for her as the film has done so well.

Though it’s going to be regular celebrations with the family this year, the actor says, “One thing I like about this festival is lighting up my entire house. I just love diyas, making rangoli outside and doing flower decoration. It’s the prettiest festival. My room is the cleanest on Diwali (laughs).”

Kiara reminiscences of her younger days and reveals that earlier she used to attend a lot of parties with friends but from last few years, it’s only been with family. “A day before Diwali, we have friends and relatives over but everyone likes to have their own family time on Diwali,” she says.

About celebrations and Puja at home, the actor says, “While my grandparents do the prayers at home, my mom takes the charge when we do the Puja at dad’s office during the day, where his entire staff, our house help and everyone else gets together.”

Kiara admits that binge eating is something that she can’t avoid during festivities. “I just can’t ignore all the sweets around me. It’s the only time I give in to pedas and besan ka ladoo. But then I get back to my routine and workout without skipping it for even a day,” she says.

Firecrackers are an absolute no-no for Kiara. “I am very scared of crackers. I don’t like anything that messes up things around, whether it’s the building parking or surrounding areas. I prefer not to play with fire crackers. I’d urge people to not burn crazy amount of crackers. Sometimes fireworks are pretty, so I like looking out of my window and watching that, but I am a little bit of darpok (scared) when it comes to crackers,” she quips.

According to Kiara, Diwali is the best time to sport your best looks. “I always set aside a bucket of some beautiful outfits that I wear around and on Diwali. I just love to dress up in Indian clothes during festive season,” she shares.
