If Bollywood Celebs Were Our Favourite Diwali Items, This Is What They Would Be

If Bollywood Celebs Were Our Favourite Diwali Items, This Is What They Would Be

Are you living in a state where crackers are banned or are you smart enough to not burn crackers regardless? Well, ban or no ban, crackers are a serious no-no this Diwali (and all the rest to come) but we are allowed to miss it thoda thoda. After all, these super lit crackers have a lot of our childhood Diwali memories! Do you know what else reminds us of Diwali? Those delicious, irresistible, tempting things that can turn every day into cheat days. No guesses there, we’re talking about the sweetest Diwali mithais

Well, we don't know about you but as Diwali is approaching, we are getting a lot more obsessed with guessing which particular patakha and mithai resembles our favourite celebrities. We did some calculations and the results are super interesting! Read on.

Diwali Crackers & Mithais As Our Favourite Celebrities

Excited to know who’s more like an Anaar and who’s our Gulab Jamun

Priyanka Chopra As Rocket

How else are we supposed to describe the star who’s a global phenomenon but still Unfinished? For Priyanka Chopra, the sky is the limit and we want her to aim higher and higher with every passing phase of her life. Just like we wished that for a Rocket! Remember how we used to light up a rocket and pray it reached the ultimate height? That’s what we wish for our Desi Girl as well. 

Alia Bhatt As Gulab Jamun

If we had to describe Gulab Jamun then we’d call it small balls of love that one can never get enough of. If we had to describe Alia Bhatt, we’d call her a small package of EXTREME talent that we just don’t wish to ever get enough of. Do we need to say more about this supremely talented and extremely sweet diva?

Deepika Padukone As Ladi (Garland)

Remember Ladis? The neverending stretch of tiny cylindrical crackers combined together to make one hell of a firework. Well, that’s Deepika Padukone for us! The gorgeous beauty is a neverending combination of beauty, talent, grace, courage, and frankly, the list can go on. Just like a Ladi never seemed to end, we hope DP’s brilliant performances one after the other never end either!

Ranbir Kapoor As Kaju Katali

Arguably, Kaju Katli is the showstopper of all the Diwali mithais and otherwise as well. Says who? Umm.. everyone! It looks simple yet super classy and has just the right balance of sweetness - neither too OTT nor too bland. You can have as much Kaju Katli as you want just like you can watch Ranbir’s movie as many times as you want. His screen presence is so on-point that sometimes we truly forget that he’s even acting!

Kareena Kapoor Khan As Phuljhari (Sparklers)

Whenever we mention crackers, the first thing that comes to our mind is Phuljharis or sparklers. And, whenever we say Bollywood diva, our mind automatically shifts to Kareena Kapoor Khan. We definitely have stopped burning crackers but we will never forget the beauty of sparklers. Just like that, stars may come and go but our Poo aka Bebo is never ever getting out of fashion!

Shraddha Kapoor As Rasgulla

Rasgullas might be dipped in chaashni but who can beat the sweetness of Shraddha Kapoor? The Aashiqui actress blew our minds with her soft-spoken behaviour and dazzling smile. Seriously, Shraddha, enna sona kyu rabb ne banaya?

Ranveer Singh As Anaar (Flowerpots)

Imagine a lit anaar in its full glory, releasing dazzling fireworks and sparkles all around. Beautiful, right? Now, imagine Ranveer Singh in his uber-cool avatar and super colourful outfits! Do you see the similarity? Both of them are so full of colours, lights, and life that we can’t even! We definitely have to wonder what's more lit--Raveer or Anaar!

Sonam Kapoor As Ras Malai

Unlike every other mithai on the list, you cannot just grab Ras Malai and start eating it. You need proper cutlery to devour this sweetest dessert. Similarly, when it comes to Sonam Kapoor, you cannot just explain this fashion icon in a few simple words. You need to take your time to understand her fashion sense and sometimes her statements as well. Nevertheless, one look at Sonam and you know that this classy diva needs all classy treatment!

Katrina Kaif As Chakhri (Ground Spinner)

Chakhris whirl around on the ground and light up every direction. And, Chakhris are beautiful! Just like our gorgeous Katrina Kaif, who is stunningly beautiful and extending her talent in every direction. The Ek Tha Tiger star is not just a fab actress but also the owner of her amazing beauty brand, K-Beauty.

Shahid Kapoor As Falooda

Falooda instantly makes our mouth water with its tempting colour, coolness, and sweetness. Shahid Kapoor might play really hot-headed characters but definitely knows how to maintain his cool and stay chilled-out all the time! 

Happy Diwali folks! Let this story be the closest you come to crackers this year and may your Diwali be super-sweet!
