Ahead of Diwali festival, Bollywood celebrities urge for cracker free and green Diwali. One of them is actor Juhi Chawla who posted a video on her social media account supporting the ‘Firecracker free Diwali’ and celebrating the festival with desi diyas. She has shared a DIY trick for affordable homemade diya to try this festive season.

While making diya, Juhi explained how she plans to light up her house with desi diyas, and captioned the video, “Did you know, Diwali in the traditional sense has little to do with myriad fireworks! This Diwali I plan to light up my house with desi diyas as nothing speaks festive more than the flickering light spread around the house. How do you plan to protect your environment this Diwali? Share your pledge in the comments below..”
