Diwali is here and as our TV actors are all set to celebrate the festival of lights. They share with us the most prized gifts – which they have either received or given, on this day.
I was born on Diwali, so it’s technically my birthday and my family tries to make it special for me every year. Also, every year I prefer to work on this day as I believe that there is no better respect to Laxmi ji than working on this day. I love how the entire city is lit up and this festival is very close to my heart. One of my friends gifted me an expensive bag on Diwali and that is one of my treasured possessions till date.
For my family, spending time with me is the biggest gift that I can give them. Last year, I surprised them with a visit back home in Kolkata, on Diwali. We celebrated Diwali together after 8 long years. I still remember the smiles on their faces and their expressions when I came in front of them. They were almost in tears because of the happiness that they felt. I wish I could visit them more often, but my work keeps me very busy.
My husband gifted me a Bvlgari Serpenti watch as a surprise, one Diwali because he knew how much I really wanted it. It is one of my favourite gifts as it has an emotional value to it as well. It shows how much he cares and thinks about me. I love wearing the watch and try to do so as much as possible.
I stay with my father in Mumbai and I bought a house two years back. That was the best gift that I have ever bought for myself. My father was also very happy as he could see how well I am doing and how much I have grown in my profession.
Diwali is all about family for me and I always try to do something that makes the entire family happy on Diwali. I gifted my parents a property on Diwali, a few years back. That was the most emotional and expensive gift that I have ever given anyone. The smile on parents’ faces was out of this world. I wish that I continue to do well in my profession so that I am able to buy them all that their hearts desire.
I love chocolates, but being an actor, we always limit our sweet intake. However, Diwali is a time when I forget all diets and focus on eating goodies and gorging on some of my favourite items. A friend gifted me a big chocolate hamper three years back and for three days I was on a chocolate diet. It was amazing. I wish I get one this year too!
