Anupamaa AKA Rupali Ganguly Reveals Her DIWALI 2021 Plans; Actress To Celebrate The Festival In A Special Way With Family
Rupali Ganguly, who plays the titular role in popular daily soap Anupamaa, loves the festival of lights Diwali but is against burning crackers since childhood. The actress has appealed to her fans to have crackers-free and noise-free Diwali. While speaking to, Rupali shared her plans for the festival and revealed she will be celebrating the festival with her family at home she does not like socializing.

The actress also shared her fond memories from the festival. Rupali said, “Every year on Diwali I request people to let this festival be all about lights and not crackers. Please light up your homes and your hearts, and after Laxmi puja if at all you need to burn crackers, then light up a phuljhari or a chakri, but please don't create any noise pollution. I am not a cracker fan and don't understand why people single out only Diwali while banning them. Crackers in any festival should be banned. Festivals should be about lights and love, I don't understand why we need to pollute the environment.”

"So many birds get heart attacks because of the sound, and I remember my father's heart rate would shoot up during this festival. It affects old people and even pets and birds. Old and sick people and animals bear the brunt of it. Also, people spend so much money on it and all the money literally goes up in smoke. So why do that. I would just request everyone to have a noise-free, safe and a happy Diwali," she added. 

For Rupali, Diwali is all about spending time with her family and loved ones. She further shared, “Diwali is the festival of lights and I absolutely love lighting up diyas in my home and making a rangoli. It is a festival of mithai and meeting loved ones. It is also like an official holiday, because during school we would get a holiday for the festival and I am still habitual to that. Diwali to me means family, and lights and everything bright around me.”

Sharing her Diwali plans, Rupali revealed, "Nothing big, because I will be shooting before and after the Diwali day. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not into socialising. I like to be at home and spend time with my family. I might have a get-together of family members and close friends and have a puja at home. For me, it's very important to impart culture and family values to my son. He needs to know that there is a ritual of doing a puja at home, there has to be faith, there needs to be love for the family, a value for Indian culture and traditions, and a proud feeling of being an Indian.” Also Read: Diwali 2021 Special: Jasmin Bhasin, Neha Bhasin, Nishant Malkhani, Vijayendra Kumeria; TV Celebs Share Their Fond Memories-EXCLUSIVE
