Amitabh Bachchan to celebrate Aaradhya’s first Diwali with great gusto


By Hindustan Times

Diwali is just around the corner and almost every household in the county will be celebrating it with great gusto. And the Bachchans are not any different.

This time the star family has another reason to celebrate the festival in an even more special manner — it is Amitabh Bachchan’s
granddaughter Aaradhya’s first Diwali on November 13. Also, with her birthday falling only three days later, on November 16, the family plans to go the extra mile with festivities this year.

A source reveals, “The Bachchans are a spirited family and they truly love celebrations. Abhishek and Ash’s first anniversary and Karva Chauth were also celebrated in a big way. This time round, after Big B’s birthday party, it is now Aaradhya’s turn.”

The source adds, “Grandpa Bachchan is leaving no stone unturned and has ordered 200 kandils (paper lanterns) from a well-known manufacturer in Thane called Kailash Desle, who specialises in making eco-friendly decorative items. The entire Bachchan house will be adorned with them.”

Of course, simultaneous preparations to ring in Aaradhya’s first birthday, just three days after Diwali, are in the process as well.

Looks like the family has a lot of planning to do this month.
