Di­wali has al­ways been syn­ony­mous with lights, cel­e­bra­tions, and fam­ily. For ac­tor Sonam Kapoor, too, one of the ma­jor high­lights of the fes­ti­val is spend­ing time with her near and dear ones. In fact, Sonam has never missed a Di­wali cel­e­bra­tion with her fam­ily so far. A source says, “She is ex­tremely close to her fam­ily, and so, just like in the past, wants to be with them this time as well.”

HT Café has learnt that Sonam has de­cided to take a five-day break from her shoot­ing sched­ule of Veere Di Wed­ding (VDW) in Delhi to cel­e­brate Di­wali with her fam­ily back home in Mum­bai. “It’s her favourite fes­ti­val, so she will be back in the city in time,” says a source.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, Sonam will land in Mum­bai on the even­ing of Oc­to­ber 15. The source says, “She will shoot on Oc­to­ber 16 and 17 for San­jay Dutt’s biopic, and then will be busy with the Di­wali cel­e­bra­tions from the 18th to 20th. Af­ter that, she will re­sume shoot­ing for VDW on Oc­to­ber 21 and 22 in Mum­bai.”

It goes with­out say­ing that the Kapoor fam­ily is happy that Sonam will make it for their an­nual Di­wali cel­e­bra­tions. “The VDW team has been at work con­stantly, but Sonam has re­quested for a break in ad­vance so she wouldn’t miss Di­wali,” says the source.

Sonam has been in Delhi for al­most a month now to shoot for her new film, which also fea­tures Ka­reena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Tal­sa­nia. Ac­cord­ing to the source, af­ter Di­wali, she will fly to UK on Oc­to­ber 23 to ful­fil a pro­fes­sional com­mit­ment.

Sonam couldn’t be reached for a com­ment.
