New Delhi: It's Diwali time, already! The entire nation is gripped in the festive fervour, but this year, the celebrations are low-key owing to the coronavirus pandemic. This Diwali, it's advisable to avoid parties and have a low-key celebration with family and close friends. Of course, we will miss our previous years Diwali parties and masti with friends.
Bollywood, too, celebrates Diwali with much fervour and every year, the Bachchans, Anil Kapoor, Jeetendra and other star families host some big Diwali parties for their friends and colleagues from the industry. This year, celebrations have taken a back seat due to COVID-19 and also because of the deaths of actors such as Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput.
Now, as we miss B-Town's glitz and glamour on Diwali, we have collated a few throwback pictures of the stars and their parties. Scroll through the album here.
T 3532 - On the auspicious festive week our love and prayers to all ..
