Diwali festival ended this past weekend and the skies were lit up by colorful fireworks. Known as the ‘Festival of Lights’, the celebration is held wherein friends and families get together, light ‘Diyas’ (earthen lamps) in their houses, feast on sweet delicacies, exchange gifts, play games and light fireworks. In Nairobi enthusiasts were not left behind as they celebrated Diwali.
Far from home, Bollywood celebrities did not shy off from the festivities. The Bachchan family hosted a Diwali party at their residency and it was packed with Bollywood stars. Among the atendees were Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and Katrina Kaif. Actress Bipasha Basu also graced the event and shared pictures from the party on her Instagram page.
The Bhachchan family had not hosted a Diwali party after two years after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father Krishnaraj Rai died in 2017 and after Shweta’s father-in-law Rajan Nanda died in 2018.
