One of India’s Diwali’s most awaited festivals is just a few days away, but this year it seems like the pandemic has ruined the excitement. The famous Diwali celebration arranged by Amitabh Bachchan every year has been called off. The actor Abhishek Bachchan said in a recent interview that this year they are not going to host the Diwali party.
In the film industry, this Diwali Party by the Bachchan’s has been the signature event over the years.
Due to this pandemic situation and death in the family, the party has been called off, said Abhisekh Bachchan. He spoke to Spotboye that it was decided after the death of Ritu Nanda, who passed away this January, that this year the Diwali Party would not be held. Ritu Nanda was the mother in law of his sister Shweta. Abhisekh Bachchan spoke to the publication; he quoted it is true that there has been a death in the family this year. He said that his sister’s mother-in-law Ritu Nanda had been passed away, and he also exclaimed that no kind of parties should be hosted in this kind of coronavirus situation.
The civilization and the economy of the country are going through the worst kind of crisis. He said that social distancing is the only way, and people should be most careful in this time. He also says that people are still not safe with taking so many precautions, so these kinds of social gatherings should be called off for now. He said that if one has been affected by the virus and was cured doesn’t mean that one is immune to the virus. Four members of the Bachchan family was affected by the coronavirus in July this year. Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, and his daughter Aaradhya Bachchan were all admitted to Nanavati hospital in Mumbai.
Aishwarya and her daughter Aaradhya were recovered first, and Abhishek was the last to leave. At the time of his father’s discharge from the hospital, he had written the reasons what made it hard for him to recover, and at the time of his discharge, he quoted that he has been tested COVID 19 Negative that afternoon. He thanked all his fans for their prayers and wishes. He thanked the doctors and nurses of Nanavati hospital wholeheartedly to take such good care of him and his family. He said that they couldn’t have fought COVID 19 alone without their help, and finally, he is so happy to go home.
The actor said that the situation is very uncertain. No one can give any guarantee of immunity. The virus can affect you even it has affected you before, so people must be cautious. People need to hope for the best. Abhishek Bachchan’s last web series was Breathe: Into the shadows. He will be next seen in the Harshad Mehta Biopic, The big bull, and Anurag Basu’s Ludo.
