Mumbai, Oct. 19 -- Diwali has always been a special festival for Deepika Padukone. Ever since her childhood days, the actor has loved the revelry and joyous mood that the festival brings with it. Even today, she always looks forward to spending time with her family during Diwali.

But this time around, things are going to be different for the actor as she has managed to take a short leave during the festival. A source close to the actor reveals, "Deepika carries with her fond memories of spending Diwali in Bengaluru, lighting diyas in the house along with her mom and sister. She plans to take a break from all her shoots and promotions and take a couple of days off to be with her family."
