Exclusive: Vaani Kapoor: It is best to celebrate Diwali at home this year

Vaani Kapoor is currently shooting for her next project with Ayushamann Khurrana in Chandigarh, titled Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Due to the film’s schedule amid the pandemic, the actress will have to stay away from home this Diwali. She says, “I will have to settle for video calls this year. It’s a deadly pandemic, and it has impacted lives all over the world. It’s sad that people have to restrict themselves from going out and celebrating in a big way. But, on the positive side, the only way to celebrate Diwali this year is with caution. It’s best to stay at home with your loved ones. If you are away from them, keep that distance for their well-being and yours.”

Under normal circumstances, Vaani would have been home with her family. However, she will ring in the festival with the film’s team this year. “My family and I are absolutely fine not being under the same roof during Diwali. What matters more is that we’re all safe and healthy. We can and we have to adjust to these times and act responsibly,” says the actress.

Talking about gifts she’d like for herself this Diwali, Vaani says, “On the personal front, I would love a whole lot of great projects coming my way. I wish this pandemic just leaves our lives now, and so, hoping that a vaccine is introduced soon tops my list of gifts for Diwali this year.”
