About no Diwali celebrations, Abhishek Bachchan told SpotboyE, “It’s true. We had a death in the family this year. My sister Shweta's mother-in-law (Ritu Nanda) passed away. Besides, who hosts parties at a time like this? Civilisation is going through the worst crisis ever. We all need to be as careful as possible. Observing the utmost social distance is the only option we have. And that too is not a guarantee against infection. Diwali parties and other social occasions are for now a distant dream.” Amitabh Bachchan Diwali Party: Anupam Kher Can’t Stop Praising Big B for Such a Grand Get-Together (View Pic).
