TV buffs are ready to lap up some Diwali fun with their family.

Deepika Samson aka Simar of Sasural Simar Ka
Diwali is my favourite time of the year as I’m a complete shopaholic and this festival gives me chance to shop. This year, I brought new outfits, accessories and new jewellery. I want to wish my fans and I hope this festival brings your way, bright sparkles of contentment, that stay with you through the days ahead.

Aishwarya Sakhuja aka Toasty in Saas Bina Sasural
I’ll be shooting in Mumbai and won’t be able to visit my native place. I’ll be all alone this Diwali evening. These days whatever leisure time I get, I spend on the cleanliness of my house and on Diwali day, my time will be spent on painting diya’s and decorating my house.

Pratyusha Banerjee aka Anandi of Balika Vadhu
I celebrate an environment friendly Diwali with lots of sweets, shopping, diyas and rangolis, which is equally satisfying and fun as well. Crackers are not good for the environment, both in terms of air pollution and sound pollution. This Diwali, I request all my fans to have a happy, safe and an environment friendly Diwali. Happy Deepawali!.

Nivedita Tiwari aka Runjhun of Bhagonwali
I’ve some good memories of my childhood days on how we used to celebrate this festival. After the Laxmi-Ganesh puja, our first job was to light up the earthen lamps and burst crackers. In our family, we have a tradition of having ‘Paan’ during Diwali. Even after shifting to Mumbai, I make sure to follow the same rituals there. This year, I will also be celebrating it with my co-stars of Bhagonwali.

Avika Gaur aka Roli of Sasural Simar ka
This is my favourite festival as it is the only time of the year when the whole family gets together and exchange gifts. The sparklers, the temples, the diyas and being together with family fills so much happiness in our lives. I love shopping for new clothes, bursting crackers and eating different kinds of sweets.

Rubina Dilak aka Radhika of Choti Bahu
I love this festival as the entire family gets together on Diwali. We meet and exchange gifts and even Mumbai looks so beautiful on this day. This year, I’m hoping for a day off prior to Diwali, so that I can go shopping for diyas and other items and decorate my house beautifully.

Mohnish Behl aka Dr. Ashutosh in Kuch Toh Log Kahenge
I wish my family’s happiness this Diwali. I think, one should enjoy bursting few crackers, but it should be confined to enjoyment only and shouldn’t become a competition or status issue. Wishing all my fans a very prosperous Diwali. Have a safe Diwali and take care of yourself and your family.

Ankita Lokhande aka Archana of Pavitra Rishta
I’ve always loved this festival. Making rangolis and bursting crackers is so much fun! The huge variety of sweets that one has at home makes this my time of indulgence, as it is the only occasion I get to spend time with my family and close friends. Of course, the year’s celebrations depends on our shoot schedules.

Kritika Kamra aka Dr. Nidhi Verma in Kuch Toh Log Kahenge
I ‘ve always celebrated Diwali with my family, but this year, due to my hectic shooting schedule, I can’t visit my home. I’m going to miss my family a lot. Since I’ll get an off, I’ll utilise it to the fullest by lightening candles and spending time with friends in Mumbai.

Samir Soni aka Kunal Chopra of Parichay
I celebrate Diwali with my family in Delhi and this year is no different. Diwali is one of the rare occasions where all friends and family get together and spend time with each other. I would like to wish my fans a happy Diwali and may there be joy and happiness during this divine festival.
