Diwali season is finally here and like every year, people are busy celebrating this festival of love and joy with oodles of enthusiasm. Diwali is synonymous with sweets, rangolis, get-togethers, crackers and sparkling lights. But everyone has their own plan to celebrate this festival of lights.

Lets have a look at how our small screen actors are celebrating this Diwali.

Karan Jotwani as Sahil from Zee TV’s Aap Ke Aa Jaane Se 

“Diwali is the festival of lights and joy and I am looking forward to spending this Diwali with my entire family. I remember as a child, I used to love bursting crackers, but I refrain from doing so now. Lastly, I would like to wish my fans a very happy and prosperous Diwali”

Nishant Singh Malkani as Akshat from Zee TV’s Guddan…Tumse Na Ho Payega 

“Diwali is a beautiful festival and I am looking forward to celebrating it with family and friends. We always have a puja at home followed by a party with lots of food. Its special as it calls for big family get together. I completely support the Supreme Court’s decision of keeping a limited time for bursting crackers. It is indeed a great decision as it will limit noise pollution and air pollution to a great extent. Lastly, I would like to wish all a very Happy Diwali.

Eisha Singh as Zara from Ishq Subhan Allah

“Diwali is my favorite festival and I always look forward to celebrating it with my relatives. Every year, I visit my hometown Bhopal on this occasion and celebrate with my friends and family. We always do a small puja at home and dress up in our best traditional attire and indulge in some amazing delicacies. I feel that the Supreme Court has taken a right decision of allowing people to burst crackers for 2 hours to keep up the spirit of festivities. Everyone must enjoy celebrating this beautiful festival of lights and I would like to wish all a very Happy and prosperous Diwali.”

Monica Khanna aka Zeenat from Ishq Subhan Allah 

“Diwali is the festival of light and colours and brings in lot of positivity and happiness with it. I love making rangolis and gorging on tasty sweets. Moreover, I look forward to meeting my friends and relatives and enjoying my day with family. I do not support bursting of crackers and I think one should light candles and diyas and spend quality time with loved ones.  We must protect our environment and avoid activities that causes harm to our environment.”

Sehban Azim aka from Zee TV’s Tujshe Hai Raabta 

“The first thought that comes to mind about Diwali is lights and decorations. Every year, I am usually busy with my friends celebrating the festival but this year, I look forward to spending quality time with my family. I fondly remember, during my childhood I always waited for Diwali to be around friends, burst firecrackers and eat some mouth-watering scrumptious food. Putting aside the real religious significance of the festival, I think Diwali brings togetherness; it’s about bonding with friends and celebrating the simple joys of life and primarily taking darkness away from each other's and our own life. I'm glad that the government has taken some action to cut down pollution and it's a brilliant step.  Lastly, this year I am going to make diyas out of clay, so I can contribute in some way to the beauty of the festival and spread happiness.  Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous Diwali.”

Shipsy Rana as Rukhsar from Zee TV’s Ishq Subhan Allah 

“Diwali is one of my favorite festivals and I always look forward to celebrating it. This will be my first Diwali in Mumbai and I have already started decorating and beautifying my house with lights, candles and oil lamps. During Diwali, my house becomes a beacon of light and happiness. As I am away from my home-town, I am going to miss all the celebrations being held back home. Diwali signifies victory of good over evil and it brings in a lot of happiness. Lastly, I would like to wish all a very happy Diwali and urge everyone to welcome positivity and refrain from holding onto any grudges or negative feelings. We must celebrate the festival with love, joy and extend help to those in need.”

Manit Joura as Rishabh from Kundali Bhagya 

“I strongly believe that we must celebrate all festivals with our loved ones. This year, owing to my busy schedule, I will not be able to visit my family in Delhi, so I am going to celebrate it on the sets of Kundali Bhagya with my extended family. I have many memories of Diwali as our entire family would get together, my Grandfather would bless us with ‘shagun’ and while grandmother would make us delicious halwa. For me, Diwali is all about togetherness, positivity and happiness. I frequently visit schools in villages and meet kids suffering from cancer at Tata Memorial hospital to celebrate the festival with them. This year, I am going to visit an orphanage and spend time with kids there. Lastly, I would like to wish all my fans and their loved ones a very Happy and Prosperous Diwali and would urge all not to burn crackers and pollute the environment. Stay Blessed!

Savita Prabhune as Ahilya from Tujhse Hai Raabta

“While the normal preparations of cleaning the house, festive shopping, lighting diyas and bursting crackers are going to be on my list, I believe that Diwali is the perfect occasion for a family reunion and celebrating special moments with our loved ones. I make sure I am around my family for this day and not working. As a kid, I used to enjoy bursting crackers but as I grew up I understood that it’s a very unhealthy way of celebrating the festival and doing more damage than any good.  I have a pet dog and he gets really scared by the sound of the crackers, so I understand what effect it must be having on the pets and animals and its high time we should stop it. Here’s wishing everyone a very happy Diwali”

Avinash Mishra as Shantanu from Yeh Teri Galiyaan 

“This year I am planning to celebrate Diwali in a very simple manner with lots of sweets, tasty food and by playing some games and enjoy some peaceful time with my friends. I have a very fond memory of Diwali wherein I had dressed up as a girl and performed at a function. I still have a good laugh remembering it. Here’s to making many such great memories and I wish everyone a happy Diwali.”

Sanjay Gagnani as Prithvi from Kundali Bhagya

“I prefer spending time with my family on Diwali and I plan to do that this year as well. Every year, we perform Laxmi Puja in the evening followed by a sweet tasting session.  I don’t encourage bursting crackers as it leads to noise pollution and air pollution and dampens the spirit of festivities.  It is a very special festival and I wish that everyone makes it even more special by celebrating it with our loved ones. Happy Diwali.”

Kanika Mann as Guddan from Guddan… Tumse Na Ho Paega 

“Diwali is one of the most beautiful festivals and celebrated with much fervour all over the country. Our surroundings are being so well lit up that it looks heavenly. I love the lights, but I am not in support of noise or smoke. I feel we should be responsible citizens and every festival should be taken as an opportunity to do something good. I would urge everyone to drop bursting crackers and go for an eco-friendly Diwali. I would like to wish everyone a very happy and prosperous Diwali”

Shweta Mahadik as Durga from Guddan… Tumse Na Ho Paega 

“I am very fond of decorations, especially lights. I decorate my house with 'diyas', colourful lights, rangolis and flowers during Diwali. I love the whole atmosphere and vibe that Diwali brings with it. Diwali indicates how good always wins over evil and it is a very special festival for me. I am a family person and enjoy spending time with my family and friends on Diwali. I believe in a noise-free Diwali as bursting crackers is harmful for our environment. Have a joyous and safe Diwali”

Rehaan Roy as Parv in Guddan Tumse Na Ho Paega 

“I stay away from my family and going to miss all the festivities being held back home. To experience some flavour of Kolkata Diwali, I am going to try my hand at preparing Sondesh and I am excited about it.  I have already started sending chocolates and sweets to my friends and planning a small get together with my friends in Mumbai. So, my home made Sondesh and food is definitely going to be a treat to everyone. I don’t burn crackers and I would urge everyone to please avoid burning sound crackers. I have pet at home and I know how painful it is for them so please enjoy this celebration without chaos. Wishing everyone a very happy Diwali”

Poorva Gokhale as Anupriya in Tujhse Hai Raabta

“I do believe in a noise-free and harmless Diwali.  The festival is very special as the entire family comes together. I remember as a child I used to help my mother in the kitchen when she used to make Diwali snacks. I miss those moments a lot. While everything is readily available outside, but it’s not the same. Here’s wishing everyone a Happy Diwali!”

Vrushika Mehta aka Puchki in Yeh Teri Galiyaan 

“Diwali is my favourite time of the year. From Dhanteras to Bhaidooj, I celebrate all of it. The best part about Diwali is all the about sparkles, diyas and lots of happiness. I also enjoy shopping a lot, gorging on some yummy food and having a wonderful time with people who matter.  I prefer keeping it a smoke-free Diwali and celebrating it with lots of love and enthusiasm.

Aditi Sharma aka Meera from Kaleerein

“Diwali for me means going on a shopping spree, performing Laxmi puja, preparing sweets and spending time with my loved ones. Every Diwali, I decorate my house with diyas and rangolis. The season is about festive celebrations and spending time with family and friends. This year, I plan to visit an orphanage and spend some time with the kids there, feed them with sweets and chocolates. Spread love and happiness this Diwali and here’s wishing you a happy Diwali.”
