Check out what Aditya Narayan has to say about Diwali

For singer-anchor Aditya Narayan and his wife Swetha this Diwali is extra-special. “It is our first Diwali with our daughter Tvisha.So it’s a very special occasion. Also it’s the first time we’re celebrating Diwali in our new home. So two pujas this Diwali: the first one will be the traditional big puja in my parents’ home and the second a smaller puja in our new home. Then there is the traditional Diwali dinner which my Mom cooks every year for the entire family. We will be sitting together to enjoy her cooking .”

But before the Diwali celebrations start, there is one thing Aditya must do. “I’ve to hit the gym early morning for an intense workout before I consume all those calories in the evening , Thankfully my gym owner is as crazy as I am. So the gym is open on Diwali. Aur uske baad dabaa ke khayenge. Mithais have come from everywhere…And I will binge without any guilt. On Diwali I don’t restrict my intake of calories. I recommend the same for everyone in the entertainment industry. Yaar, at least let go for one day.”

Aditya will also be spending some “quantity time” with his father veteran singer Udit Narayan. “Normally Dad and I don’t drink. But Diwali is an exception. Ek ek large banegi, and we will play cards in the night with friends,that includes mera bachpan ka saathi Adhyayan Suman.”
