This year, many celebrities, including actor Rajinikanth, shared pictures and videos of their Deepavali celebrations at home. On the morning of the festival, a video of Rajinikanth lighting a thousand-wala firecracker was widely shared on the internet. Actors Aishwarya Rajesh and Keerthy Suresh too shared videos of them celebrating the festival of lights with firecrackers along with family. But while one set fire to a thousand-wala in one shot, the other bolted away four times before finally getting it done with a friend’s help.
In her Instagram stories, actor Aishwarya Rajesh posed a video of herself bursting firecrackers outside her house with her family. The actor, who wore a bright pink Banarasi saree for the festival, is seen lighting the thousand-wala while deftly holding her saree gathered in one hand and the incense stick in the other. As the cracker ignites, Aishwarya sprints in the opposite direction. In another video, she’s seen handling a fire gun with swag. Shot in slow-motion, the video shows her drawing an ‘O’ in the air.
Actor Keerthy Suresh, on the other hand, shared a video of herself jumping and bolting off a few times before finally lighting one firecracker along with a friend. Keerthy also shared a few pictures and videos, in which she’s seen celebrating with television celebrity couple Sanjeev and Preethi Sanjeev. Wearing a simple magenta and white salwar set, Keerthy tagged the post saying, “Diwali mornings can be quite adventurous, as we can see!”
Later in the evening, Keerthy switched to a pale green, yellow and white garara kurta set and celebrated Deepavali from her terrace. She is seen holding a fire gun at arm’s length as the wind blows against her, in a video posted on her Instagram feed.
Keerthy was last seen in Miss India (Telugu) that was widely panned critics. The National Award winning actor has a bunch of films up for release. This includes Good Luck Sakhi (Telugu), Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham (Malayalam), Rang De (Telugu) and Annaatthe (Tamil). She recently announced Saani Kaayidham/Sarkaru Vaari Paata a Tamil-Telugu bilingual alongside director Selvaraghavan who will be making his debut as an actor. The team shared the first look poster on Deepavali in which Keerthy and Selvaraghavan can be seen squatting with blood on their bodies. The poster indicates a crime story.
Aishwarya Rajesh, on the other hand, was last seen in Ka Pae Ranasingam that received widespread acclaim. She is presently working on Bhoomika and Thittam Irandu (Tamil), Truck Jagadish (Telugu). She is also part of the Tamil anthology Navarasa. Additionally, the star has a few unreleased films that include Gautham Menon’s Dhruva Natchathiram, Idhu Vedhalam Sollum Kadhai and Seenu Ramasamy’s much delayed Idam Porul Yaeval.
