Diwali 2020: A lacklustre affair

Not so filmy Diwali

By Aiswarya Raj

The Bachchans’ have cancelled Diwali celebrations this year due to Rishi Kapoor’s death. Widely acknowledged as the greatest hosts, this year, the jamboree has given way to a pall of gloom. Rishi Kapoor’s absence has made Ekta Kapoor call off this Diwali.

Kareena is all ready to spent a low-key Diwali at Dharamshala with Taimur and Saif Ali Khan, who is shooting there. “It’s been a year where we had to be at home for a long duration. So, going to Dharamshala and being there for a few days will be great. We plan to keep it very quiet and spend as much time in the open as we can. It’s obviously not going to be a big Diwali, and I am very happy with that, I would rather have it small this year,” she told the BT.

Before going back to the sets of KGF2, Sanjay Dutt has planned on a quiet Diwali celebration with wife Maanayata and their kids in Dubai. The Maldives vacation of the suspect couple Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff. Diwali being near, it is probable they spent it in the tranquil island.

Covid-19 regulations have not been received with fervor, so have the abstention from crackers. The otherwise loud parties with million-dollar costumes will be missed this Diwali.
