At a time when the whole nation is immersed in Diwali festivities, how can our TV celebrities be any different? Hence we caught up with a few of them and quizzed them on how they plan to usher in this pan India festival. All the stars we spoke to, first wished all Telly Buzz readers a very Happy Diwali and prosperous New Year.
Rohit Roy says that he and Ronit's family will spend the Diwali together as usual. "This time we will have laxmi pooja at our Production House, Magicworks' office", adds the actor.
Arjun Bijlani aka Alekh of Left Right Left will spend his off time playing cards. "Its good luck to gamble a bit on Diwali", he quipped. His Left Right Left co star, Priyanka Bassi is flying home to Delhi to be with her loved ones. "Its really sweet to exchange gifts and check out the hustle and bustle of festival bazaars", she exclaimed.
Rohit and Arjun agreed that Diwali has become more commercial these days. "But is this not common with all festivals?", argued Jennifer. Priyanka butted in saying, "It all depends on the individual, I know of many people who still celebrate in good old days style."
Jennifer had the balanced view saying, "Bursting crackers is fun, but one needs to always have the safety belt on. Live the season full, but take extreme care and enjoy with crackers.."
