This bond makes our lives perfect.”Added Palak, “Everyone always told me that after my marriage, my partner will find it very difficult to escalate my level of happiness.

Rajan Shahi's 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' show actors share their Diwali plans
Produced by Rajan Shahi (Directors Kut production) Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is creating waves post-leap. The cast of YRKKH share their Diwali plans.
My Diwali will be working on Diwali. We were discussing on set about how there are some people who don't live with their families here and everyone was saying that we would not be able to celebrate with our family. So I said yes, but on the bright side, we will be earning Lakshmi on the day of Lakshmi Puja. Lakshmi ji will come to our house, that means will be working and how many people get such an opportunity? So let me be grateful. And let's be happy that we got this opportunity and of course, I will be celebrating it with my family and friends after the shoot. I personally love Diwali. I get very excited about lights and the festive spirit. I personally really love it, it's one of my favorite festivals. It also means victory of good over evil. So it means that everything I meant earlier was between Ram And Ravana but now it's the evil within us and the good within us. All of us have good and evil within us. And it means how we are able to out shadow the bad things with the good. I think this Diwali will be most memorable because I have got such a prestigious show Where I am playing Abhira. Something that has been a part of people's lives for 14 years is a big opportunity. The attitude of gratitude is what makes me happy.
Diwali plans, there's nothing yet because We are shooting on Diwali also; So there are no Diwali plans at all. Well, see, for the past three years, I've been in Mumbai, but haven't gone to Punjab. Diwali isn't anything special for me, but when I was in Punjab, Ludhiana, we used to do a lot of lighting; our house is quite big. My family is there and I'll miss my family. I'll do video calls and chat, and the biggest gift I've got this Diwali is 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai', all thanks to Rajan Shahi sir.
I will first pray and keep Diya's at home. I don't burn crackers but I love driving around during Deepawali. So mostly I will be visiting a couple of close friends and would be having some good home-cooked pakwaans and sweets. It is the light at the end of every dark tunnel. The comeback after all the struggles, fights, and sacrifices. Coming back to your family and loved ones is the nicest thing. Well the last Deepawali celebration in our old house in Meerut was the most memorable one as We painted the house, decorated it ourselves, and cooked some really amazing food. The last get-together with our local relatives and friends was something I can never forget.
Diwali is my most favourite festival. It’s the best excuse to gorge on rich food. Each year I spend my Diwali in Delhi with my extended family and childhood friends. But this time I’m in Mumbai. My wife will do the Laxmi Pooja and I shall take my Laxmi , my wife , shopping. Diwali signifies God’s grace, grand , new beginnings. I look forward to Diwali each year because I know , the best and the most festive week of the entire year is the Diwali week. Each Diwali , we remember all the previous ones and the fun and festivities. So next year , we shall talk about this one. And so forth. Each Diwali is special.
Preeti Vipin Choudhary
I always spent time with my family on Diwali. Diwali is that time of the year when the whole family is meeting each other and I like decorating the house. I remember my first Diwali after my marriage I had gone to Delhi my in-laws place and it's huge there.
About Diwali plans I want to elaborate in a few lines, "Diwali pass hai aur ghar bahut dur." Nothing much, just Enjoying with friends and Greeting people. Diwali is all about happiness and taking blessings of Goddess Laxmi. Most memorable Diwali is when I was celebrating it with my family.
Navin Prabhakar: It is our responsibility to take care of the animals around us during Diwali
Comedian Navin Prabhakar says that there are enough reasons as to why there is so much pollution, and Diwali is not the only reason behind it. He says that low-impact crackers barely create smoke and there is no harm in including these in celebrations.“This year we are planning to go abroad or Jim Corbett after celebrations. We celebrate the festival of lights, that is Diwali at our home only. We worship Goddess Lakshmi and have a get together. There are also Diwali house parties. For the past 16-17 years, I have been celebrating Diwali this way,” he says, adding, “During my childhood, we used to burst crackers to celebrate the festival. Now, our Diwali also includes lots of sweets, and love. Seeking blessings from the elders, having fun with our friends, is what Diwali is all about for us. So, you know without sweets, crackers and people, Diwali is just incomplete. Diwali is the beginning of the new year for Indians, so we celebrate it with new clothes and new things. I think we can't have Diwali without a few crackers because that's how we have been celebrating it for years.”
He says. “I would like to raise a question to people who talk about noise pollution only during the festive seasons. For me, even I don't like such bombs or crackers during Diwali that make noise, but when it comes to small firecrackers that we have been using since childhood, I think they don't create much noise while bursting. With time we have understood that noise pollution is not good for our environment. So it's our responsibility to take care of the animals around us during Diwali. It's our duty to not use crackers which create much noise. So, for Diwali, I think we should greet people with love, wear new clothes, eat lots of sweets and worship Goddess Lakshmi together.”
Talking about Diwali shopping, he says, “When it comes to shopping for Diwali, we buy new clothes, and things required for performing Lakshmi Puja. So, shopping includes everything new that would bring positivity in our home. With a new hope we welcome the new year. We hope that the new year brings lots of happiness and good health in our lives. With that thought we meet people and greet them. To celebrate such a festival that has a totally different aura, we start performing Puja with everything new and end it with lots of sweets and love.”
Food and clothes are a big part of Diwali, he says, adding, “I love to eat Imarti or Karanji (in Marathi), Kaju Katli, Besan ke laddoo, and we exchange diyas with each other during Diwali. As for Diwali clothes, I wear colourful silk kurtas during festivals. I love colourful things. Every festival has a significance in our Hindu culture. So, I go for new silk kurtas as they make me feel great.”
Festive time is fun, but hectic too, he says, adding, “Yes of course, for the last 15 to 16 years, I have been getting great opportunities to work on OTT and other platforms. I used to be very tense earlier but now I am not so tense. So, I have been celebrating Diwali with my family at our home for the last 4-5 years. It feels great to celebrate any festival with our loved ones. I don't prefer to go anywhere for those 5 days of diwali. After 5 days we plan to go somewhere. This year we are planning to go to a good traveling point in India. We love to travel and explore nature.”
Happu Ki Ultan Paltan actor Sonal Panvar: 'I would love to play something real, raw, and subtle'
Having started with "Crime Patrol" at the age of 17 and doing shows such as "Woh Apna Sa," "Piya Albela," and also some web series, including "Faceless," "Maya 2," and "Candy", Sonal Panvar has come a long way. She is also into singing. Currently, she is a part of the show "Happu Ki Ultan Paltan"."My character's name is Malaika in the show. She is a girl who is very strong and aspires to become a police inspector. She likes Haryanvi culture and tries to speak Haryanvi. It has been 2-plus years now, and the best part is that she is the only one in the show who is very subtle and doesn't overreact to anything. That's the beauty of the character," she says.
Comedy is the toughest genre. "It is the toughest thing in the world. I kept laughing on the first day because I didn't know how not to react to those funny dialogues. It took time to accept it, but I'm glad I now understand the world of comedy," she adds.The comparison between OTT and tv and how the former is giving competition to the latter is a common topic of discussion.
"After OTT do you feel tv shows are getting a lot of competition? I don't think so. TV has a very different audience who will never like OTT, and the same goes for OTT. There is no comparison at all. I love the concept of OTT. I would love to play something real,raw, and subtle. I would love to portray different characters as much as I can and explore emotions in the best way possible," she says.So what’s your favourite me time?, " That's when I'm with the books I read, the soft music in the room, and eating something nice that I made myself. It's the simple and best thing I do almost once a week," she smiles.
Ask her what she does when she feels low and she says, "When I'm feeling down, I call a few people I enjoy talking to and allow myself to convert my pain into art. I get up and paint, write a story, or maybe cook some delicious food to feel artistic. That's the best healing process for me."
