It’s al­ways fam­ily first on ev­ery Di­wali for Ravi Dubey

HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT - Rishabh Suri rishabh.suri@htlive.com

Ac­tor Ravi Dubey is in a happy space, for all the right rea­sons. Af­ter be­ing a part of re­al­ity shows such as Sabse Smart Kaun and Ris­ing Star, he has also turned pro­ducer along with his wife Sar­gun Me­hta in the Pun­jabi film in­dus­try.

He might be a busy man, but he al­ways gives his fam­ily pri­or­ity over ev­ery­thing else. This year too, like pre­vi­ous years, he will spend Di­wali in Gu­ru­gram with his par­ents and friends, along with his wife. He is mak­ing the most of his short break by meet­ing friends and at­tend­ing Di­wali par­ties.

Ravi tells us, “Right from my child­hood, I cel­e­brated Di­wali ev­ery year with my fam­ily. If I have time, I am there with them for Dhanteras too, but if not, then atleast on Di­wali.” Ask the ac­tor his fond­est mem­o­ries of the fes­ti­val, and he says, “The fond­est and most con­sis­tent mem­ory I have from my child­hood is that my fa­ther used to make me and my brother study dur­ing the Di­wali pooja. I don’t know ex­actly why he did that, some­thing to do maybe with the fact that what you do on fes­ti­vals, you flour­ish in through­out the year. Not that we would study!” he says.

He’s also happy that the Supreme Court has ruled that peo­ple can burst crackers only for two hours. “I stopped burn­ing crackers when 14. I saw the point­less­ness of it. The judge­ment, that one can burst them only dur­ing 8pm to 10pm made me very happy,” Ravi signs off.
