Diwali with the stars — here's the lowdown on celebrations this year

Bollywood loves the festival of lights off-screen just as much they do on-screen
Updated 11 Nov, 2015

Diwali is unofficial party season across the border; celebs take out time from their grueling schedules to let loose and light up some firecrackers.

This year, the movers and shakers of Bollywood were spoilt for choice -- there were multiple shindigs to choose from, happening one after the other over the course of a week.

Ekta Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, Shilpa Shetty and the Bachchans were all hosting! While television folks mostly flocked to Ekta's party, members of the movie fraternity did a lot of party hopping this Diwali.

Television actress, Krystle D'Souza's pre-stitched sari caught our eye.

Karan Johar posed with Mrs. Funnybones at her bash.

Whereas Akshay Kumar took a selfie with Siddhartha Malhotra and Asin.

Clearly, K-Jo loves being in front of the camera too, not just behind it!

#diwali #kjo super fun...!!

We think Aish looked lovely in red, not to mention that eyeliner is on fleek!

As expected. Sonam Kapoor killed it in her Tarun Tahiliani ensemble.

Bebo was also on top of her style game this Diwali.

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone were caught up with promoting their upcoming flick, Tamasha.

Parineeti Chopra tweeted best wishes.

Shahid Kapoor rang in his first Diwali with the new bride, Mira.

Shilpa Shetty was 50 shades of blue this year.

She wore a Manish Malhotra outfit at her own party.

Seems like Mr. Malhotra was a popular choice.

He celebrated with a bang too!

You can wear a lehnga choli but you can never rock it quite like Malaika Arora Khan can.

@Lahore most welcome I wish some day I would travel to see and real Pakistan . what good if both countries benefit from tourism in stead of suffering from terrorism. It would make people to people contact and both side would benefit and message of love and peace will spread . we need love and peace not bullet on the border

likewise wish someday could visit Pakistan and tourist places over there. The current state of heightened tensions has to end and make way for people to people contact. We are the same people.
