Diwali celebrations hold an important place in Kapil Sharma’s life. The actor-comedian, who remains busy throughout the year with his shows, says that Diwali is the time when he likes taking a break to spend some time with his family. Kapil, who is gearing up for the new season of The Kapil Sharma Show, is also prepping up for his wedding with long-time girlfriend Ginni Chatrath on December 12.
Sharing his Diwali plans exclusively with indianexpress.com, Kapil, in an email interaction, said, “Every Diwali is special for me. It is a time when I am surrounded by my family and loved ones. This time, it is even more special as Ginni will be a part of the celebrations in Amritsar.”
Going down memory lane, the actor said, “I clearly remember, my father hated that we burst crackers. But as a child, I was extremely stubborn. He would eventually give in and buy me firecrackers. But I made sure never to burst them on the day of Diwali. I thought my cracker’s noise would get lost. So I would burst it the next day for it to stand out. These are some sweet childhood memories. But now I feel responsible towards the environment and animals. So I have pledged to make it a green and noise free Diwali.”
Sharing a Diwali message for his fans, the comedian said, “This Diwali, ditch the crackers and spread love, laughter and light. Please try and keep the noise down, as it scares and disturbs animals. I really want to wish each and every one of you a very happy Diwali. Keep laughing always.”
Lastly, when we asked him if he could be a cracker, what would he be, Kapil said, “I am a laughter bomb! Because all other crackers are not eco-friendly.”
