TV stars’ Di­wali mem­o­ries

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - TEXT: AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH


Rashami Desai loves to see the city all decked up. “The best Di­wali was in Mum­bai only when I went out with fam­ily. We also burst crack­ers. I en­joy the fes­tive am­biance and joy on peo­ple’s faces. I cher­ish the time I went for a long drive with friends. Marine Drive was a beau­ti­ful sight,” she says.


Amit Tandon’s best Di­wali was when his par­ents came to visit him in Mum­bai. “They came to spend Di­wali with me. I en­joyed the food made by my mom and we played cards the whole night. It was su­per fun and so far, the most mem­o­rable Di­wali,” he says.


While he doesn’t burst crack­ers any­more, ac­tor Ashish Chowd­hary says his fond­est mem­ory is cel­e­brat­ing with friends. “I as­so­ciate Di­wali with fun... My fam­ily loves to light diyas and do­ing puja. I love host­ing par­ties and be­ing around peo­ple,” he says.


Get­ting to clean her house is Rishina’s favourite thing about Di­wali. “Di­wali is my favourite fes­ti­val. It has taught me that clean­li­ness is god­li­ness. The most mem­o­rable Di­wali was the one when I had got my home cleaned and painted in the colour of my choice,” she says.


Di­wali re­minds ac­tor Shashank Vyas of fam­ily. “I re­mem­ber how I used to help my mom in the kitchen. I miss those mo­ments from Uj­jain. Now we buy sweets and snacks from mar­kets, but it doesn’t feel the same,” says Shashank, who will cel­e­brate in his new Mum­bai house this time.
