'I'm really fond of this habba'

Kishore Acharya

“I am a family person and always like to spend quality time with my near and dear ones. Deepavali is a big festival and we celebrate it in a grand manner. I decorate the house, put flowers and mango leaves on the doors, hang lit stars (akash butti) and also purchase fruits, flowers and sweets for the festival.”

Kishore feels that the festival is a time to come together. “I’m really fond of this habba as it creates a magical and radiant effect in the atmosphere. But I am not gaudy in my celebrations.”

“My celebrations include visit to the temple, gifting clothes and jewellery to the family, gorging on sweets and receiving blessings from elders. I am a great foodie and especially enjoy sweets. I burst crackers but am concerned about the hazards they create,” he says.
The actor has some warnings for those who burst crackers this Deepavali.

“Nowadays, fireworks have become a vital part of the celebrations. We can’t imagine a wonderful Deepavali without them. At the same time we should consider the adverse impact of noise and pollution. More than that, ignoring the safety measures may result in permanent disability,” he includes.

“So it is equally important to make sure that both the people and the environment are safe,” says Kishore.
