Diwali is one festival which is celebrated all over India. Over the years, we have seen Bollywood being inspired by this festival, so how can they be behind when it comes to celebrating it. Our very own global icon Priyanka Chopra, all the way from New York, wished her fans and loved ones a Happy Diwali. Looking really graceful in a white saree, Priyanka posted a small video on her Instagram account saying, “Wishing everyone a very happy Diwali… May your dreams come true and may you be blessed with love, luck and light.”

Amitabh Bachchan was thinking of army jawans on the festival of lights. He wrote on social media, ” A Diwali in remembrance and in prayer for our soldiers that sacrifice their lives to safeguard our happiness !!!”

On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan used this opportunity to wish his fans and promote his film. The actor took to his official Instagram account to post a new look of his upcoming film, Kaabil. Well, what can be a better way to raise curiosity about his film than this? In the new poster, Hrithik and Yami Gautam can be seen sharing a cute chemistry.

Alia Bhatt was in a throwback mode as she wished fans. The actor is at present shooting for her upcoming film, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, and shared a picture of her school friends as she shared her wishes. Seems like the actor is missing being with her family and friends on this festival. However, she is not lagging behind in celebrating the festival as yesterday she shared a picture with Varun Dhawan, from the sets of their film. Talking about the film, another duo who in a way created buzz about their film was Jacqueline Fernandes and Sidharth Malhotra. The actors, who are pairing for the first time, shot a small video for their fans to wish them a very happy Diwali. However, they refrained from leaking anything about their film.

But Amitabh’s Pink co-star Taapsee Pannu was also thinking of soldiers. She wrote, “Why is it that every Diwali, at least one soldier loses his life on border!? Can’t imagine how scared Diwali will be for the family #sad.”
