No Diwali At The Bachchans This Year



One  of the  most lavish Diwali parties will be missing this year. The Bachchans have decided to forego their annual Diwali part this year. The death of Shweta Bachchan’s father-in-law earlier this year  is  the reason for the absence  of Diwali fanfare at the Bachchans’ resident Jalsa in  Mumbai.

Says a  source  close  to the Bachchan parivar, “The Diwali celebration in the Bachchan family  is  a  highlight and the Bachchan  family  looks forward  to hosting it . The  gates are thrown  wide open in the evening on Diwali day  for all of the Bachchans’s  friends  from the  film industry.Not this year, though.All festivities have been  put on  hold because of the bereavement in  the family.”

 Says a source  from  the family, “There will just be   a small puja  where  Bachchan Saab will be joined by his wife, son and grand-daughter. That’s it.”

 Interestingly the two most lavish Diwali parties  in  Bollywood are hosted  by Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. Both the mega-stars will be seen together for the first time on screen  in Thugs  Of Hindostan which  opens a day before Diwali. With the Big B opting out   of the Diwali festivities  the spotlight is now on Aamir’s  celebrations this Diwali.

 Over  to you, Mr Khan.
