Mahika Sharma: Diwali is family time. It’s one festival which is keenly awaited by many as we get to do a lot of things – wearing new clothes, eating so many sweets, decorate our house. One thing which I don’t like is people firing crackers. I am totally against that as our environment is affected by it.

Kunal Jaisingh: Diwali is family time for me. I will go to my dad’s office and do puja, then will do the same back home. I will also do party with my friends, but will not burst crackers as I care for environment and animals, and don’t want to harm them.

Tejaswi Prakash: Diwali will be family and friends time. I will be helping my parents in decorating home and making sweets. But I will not switch to crackers which create sound pollution. I will make a way to distribute sweets to poor kids around the signals.

Dev Joshi: It will be after four years that I will be celebrating Diwali in Gujarat with my family and friends. I plan to wear a traditional kurta pyjama on the day of Diwali. I want to have a fun and cracker-free Diwali. Crackers result in a lot of pollution to the environment and so I would request our viewers to not burst them.

Rituraj Singh: Diwali as a festival is closest to my heart and like every year this Diwali also will be at home with my family. My message to fans would be that Diwali is a festival of light and not noise. Don’t burst crackers.


Priyal Gor: I am a Gujarati and the next day of Diwali is our celebration for the New Year. Additionally, my birthday is on November 2, hence Diwali is a time of complete celebration for me. I don’t burst crackers at all.
