Here's the REAL reason the Bachchans are not celebrating Diwali this year
Amitabh Bachchan recently shared that the family is not going to celebrate Diwali as they do each year. Here's why.
Each year, the Bachchan family throws the most lavish and awaited Diwali bash. Their guest list is always envious and includes some of the most famous Indian faces.
However, this year will be different for the filmy family.
They have decided to not throw their famous Diwali bash and neither will they have any small get together either. In fact, some of them have individually been spotted attending their friends' Diwali bash.
And the reason they have decided to boycott it this year is because of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Yes, you read that right.
The news was shared by the Bachchan patriarch himself via his Twitter handle where he categorically mentioned: "no Diwali celebration this year."

Bachchans are mourning with bahu Aishwarya
The family is following a Hindu custom wherein after the loss of a loved one, a family refrains from any kind of celebration. In this case, it is to mourn the demise of late Shri Krishnaraj Rai, bahu Aishwarya's father.
And even though the family did take a break together and went to Maldives to ring in Bachchan's 75th birthday, it was a family affair devoid of any big celebrations.
Likewise, while Aishwarya did take Aaradhya to Ganpati puja this year, it was a low key affair and the family was still mourning her father's death.
Interestingly, the fact that the Bachchans have abstained themselves from any celebrations and are partaking in the mourning period only goes to show their love and respect for their daughter-in-law and her family.
In fact, Amitabh is often seen praising his daughter as well as bahu on several occasions. And partly the reason has also been Aishwarya's willingness to adjust to her new family and making an equal effort to break the ice.
Well, it is pretty clear that Aishwarya has managed to accept her in-laws as easily as they have been able to accept her. But this acceptance and mutual respect doesn't come that easy.
Sometimes you have to work towards it. And if you're wondering how, here are a few steps.
- Be true to yourself: This trait goes a long way in not only breaking the ice, but also in further cementing the relationship. Your in-laws will be there for the rest of your life, so it's better to be who you actually are in front of them. Be honest with your ideas and thoughts and do not lead them on into believing that you're somebody else.
- Let them know you value them: After all your in-laws are your spouse' parents and they deserve equal respect and appreciation as your own parents. If they have done something for you, there is no harm in appreciating their effort and letting them know you acknowledge their good deed.
- It's all about give and take: Let's not deny the fact that a marriage needs a lot of work and not only between two partners, but also between two families. So either way, both parties will have to adjust for the marriage to be a success. Therefore, it's a good idea to adjust and give in wherever needed.
