Shared bold and brawny Ashish Kapoor, who is seen as Sahil in Sony Entertainment Television’s Love Marriage Ya Arranged Marriage, “I simply love white coloured barfi especially from Delhi and guess what… mom, who is in Delhi, is coming here; naturally she is going to bring a good lot of my favourite delicacy for me. Like every year, my parents will be sending over sweets and dry fruits to my relatives. This Diwali is very special to me because some days ago, I became an uncle of my new born nephew. So excited am I that I am going to gift him lots of toys.”
Averred Sunny Goraya… who is seen as Rishabh in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, “Diwali is imperfect without sweets and delicious dishes. My favourite is the mouth watering gulab jamun. Apart from sweets, I like chivda and chakli among oily stuffs.”
