Callsheet for the day



Mohanlal: Just a day break.

DEEPAVALI, THE festival of lights not only illuminate our ordinary lives with new found prosperity and happiness but also lights up the silver screens with a spate of new releases. See what celebrity revellers have up their sleeves:

Navya Nair isn't very disappointed over missing out on Deepavali celebrations. "I am shooting at present for Sarkar Dada at Kolenchery and so celebrations will be with the unit. Not that I mind.

I am sure they are going to have surprise celebrations. I'm just waiting to see what it will be like. My childhood memories of it are only lighting the diyas and having a long beauty bath with coconut oil," she adds.

Mohanlal is busy with a hectic shooting schedule at Hyderabad for his upcoming movie, Udayananuthaaram. "We in Kerala don't celebrate Deepavali with so much fervour as the North Indians. I just take it casually as a one day break," says the inimitable superstar.



Navya Nair: A luxurious bath with coconut oil.

But Deepavali isn't all about lights. If you've got the sweet tooth this is the one time of the year you wait to sink your teeth into delectable delights.

For Navya Nair it is Bengali all the way. "Gulab Jamun and Rasagulla are my favorites and I can just about stand chocolate burfis, otherwise I am not crazy about sweets."

When it comes to dressing up for the occasion Mohanlal prefers traditional mundu and silk shirt. "I would go in for a casual look. Not anything dressy." Navya Nair prefers the ghagra choli. "I would like the choli to be heavily embroidered and with mirror work preferably."

So take a cue from these stars above and hop on to the celebratory mood. Happy diwali!

RAKEE MOHAN
