The king of Bol­ly­wood makes it clear: ‘We cel­e­brate all In­dian fes­ti­vals at our home – Di­wali, Eid, even Christ­mas, with equal ex­cite­ment. I want my kids Aryan, Suhana and Ab Ram to grow up with the best of tra­di­tions.’

The su­per­star makes sure he has no com­mit­ments on this day and is at home tak­ing part in the rit­u­als and cel­e­bra­tions. ‘I love to buy gifts for ev­ery­one in the fam­ily,’ he says. Shah Rukh also joins his chil­dren inthe evening to burst fire­crack­ers. ‘But I don’t like the loud, ex­plo­sive ones be­cause it could af­fect the kids,’ he adds.

From early evening, he throws open his doors to the crèmede la crème of Bol­ly­wood with his wife Gauri and serves the best vegetarian fare. ‘I ab­stain from non-vegetarian food on Di­wali,’ says Shah Rukh, who is known for his pas­sion for tan­doori chicken.

‘We also make it a point to visit close friends and fam­ily.’ And one must-visit friend is Big B– Amitabh Bachchan him­self.

Shah Rukh keeps his diary clear on Di­wali and stays home to help in the prepa­ra­tions with his chil­dren and wife, Gauri
