This Diwali is very special for Deepika


Bollywood siren Deepika Padukone celebrates this Diwali in her new home with family and friends. Deepika said, “A s a child back home in Bangalore, I would wake up in the morning, light diyas, decorate the entrance of our house with rangoli and wear new, traditional clothes. It was a time to catch up with friends and relatives. We’d run to the terrace of our building and light firecrackers and look forward to mom’s traditional Mangalorean sweet dishes.” Apparently, this Diwali is special for Deepika as she revealed, “This year is special for me because it’s the first Diwali in my new home. I am very excited and have decorated the whole place with diyas and candles. You know, the names of everyone in my family – Prakash, Ujwala, Anisha, and Deepika – all are different words for light.” Despite her stunning figure, Deepika is quite a foodie. “Diwali is also a time when I binge on sweets. I don’t go overboard, but I love motichoor laddoos.”
