Owing to the rise in the number of cases and pandemic Diwali has been rather low-key this year. Certain states have banned the use of firecrackers to avoid noise and air pollution. As a lot of COVID-19 patients are recuperating in the hospital.
Keeping all this in mind Diwali this year is cracker free. However this hasn't killed the vibe of the festivity and amid these dark times Diwali this year has managed to keep families together, indulging in sweets and lighting up diyas at home.
Yes, Diwali this year is indoors, but that hasn't stopped our Bollywood celebs to dress up their best and send warm wishes to their fans.
Sharing their new experience of just getting dressed to stay at home and enjoy food, conversations and the little joys this around, stars from Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and many more posted beautiful pictures and messages on their social media.
Let's take a look at who wore what in the pictures below:
