Pragati Mehra and Ami Trivedi from ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata’ talk about their plans for Diwali

Diwali will be celebrated this week around the world. People have created a list of things they plan to do to enjoy the festive occasion, including shopping, visiting family and friends, and dining out. The same is with the cast of Rajan Shahi’s well-known trilogy ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’. They are eager to celebrate the festival of lights.

Ami Trivedi
Work and party (laughs). So it’s a mix of everything that I love to do. For me not just Diwali but every festival is an excuse, a very beautiful way to be together with your loved ones and the people you care about and have fun with them. It’s a huge difference from the last couple of years since this year we are pandemic free, I would be very much in Mumbai, more specifically at work. I remember when my mum, my mammi and my massi, these three used to get together right around Diwali and they would make these amazing snacks which is a staple of every Gujarati household. As children, We used to excitedly wait for Our mom to make Gujiya and other snacks. We used to be the happiest. That would be our fondest childhood Diwali memories.

The fondest childhood Diwali memories are dressing up and visiting my parents’ clinics for puja..

Pragati Mehra
We have been informed and requested to shoot on Diwali day as now the show is 7 days a week.. so it’s welcoming Laxmi Ji on sets.. literally and figuratively. And talking about what is the significance then dress up and show up! It’s full of family time. For me Diwali is only and always family time. Pandemic or not family is and was always around, so it’s the same. Past 21 years Mumbai has been my home and hometown! The fondest childhood Diwali memories are dressing up and visiting my parents’ clinics for puja, then over to relatives and finally Pooja at home. Khao piyo aur mast raho! Of Course besides the gifts!
