Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka (Star Plus, 2019) fame hunk TV actor Shehzada Dhami says, “I always celebrate all the festivals with my family and ensure that I take time out for them. But this year, shooting is on and I am not able to get a long holiday. I have debuted with Jaadu Hai Jinn Ka this year and I am going to miss being with my family which is in Ludhiana. I lost my father last year, so this will be the first Diwali without him. I am going to miss his presence too. I am in Mumbai with my flat mates and we will decorate our house. We will light candles and diyas and also make a rangoli. We are focusing on making this a traditional Diwali while maintaining social distancing. I have two brothers who I will miss a lot. Everyone should have a low-key Diwali this year. I will splurge myself with a lot of mithais and do the puja too. I will have noise-free, cracker-free Diwali”.
Best known for his role of Lakshman in the hit mythological TV serial Sankatmochan Mahabali Hanuman (Sony TV, 2015 – 2017), TV actor Arun Mandola says, “I have to shoot the next day after Diwali and before Diwali, I am at Ayodhya Temple. This is why I cannot go home this year. There is no comparison in Diwali here and Delhi ki Diwali, which I have seen since childhood. I am very attached to Diwali because Diwali is one of my favourite festivals. People exchange Diwali mithai on Diwali. I remember I always get excited about Diwali and decorate my house, do lots of shopping, buy gifts and mithai. The best thing if you see Delhi from the sky then you will see full of colourful LED lights everywhere. I am missing my mother’s food and enjoying with my siblings. At home, we do Lakshmi poojan. Sometimes, I used to go on long drives with my friends late at night, after Diwali. This year I want to do something special for poor children and make their Diwali special as well”.

I will do basic rituals and pooja. I will miss the lighting of Jaipur and the kind of mithais and food items which are made in my hometown. They are not available anywhere. Last year, I celebrated with my parents but this time I can’t go and I can’t even ask them to come given the Covid-19 scenario. I suggest everyone not to take this Covid-19 situation lightly and stay at home. I will light candles and diyas at home only. One must understand this Diwali is different and in line with the new normal. The real celebration definition has changed. One shouldn’t party this year at all. I will do a video call with my close friends and family members on Diwali”.
