Alia Bhatt: Lights means so much to me
Bollywood supported PM Modi’s #9pm9minutes initiative on Sunday. The actors lit diya or candles to pray for those battling corona and those in pain.
Alia Bhatt shared, “When I was younger I would kiss my dad on his forehead before going off to school and after every kiss he would say “ Aaaaaah .. light aa gayi.”
Light means so much. It’s hope, beauty, strength.
“I might have not fully understood what it meant back then.. but because of his response I understood that light has wayyyyyy more depth than just illuminating our lives. Light means so much. It’s hope, beauty, strength.. today it was unity.. But no matter where we are and what we are going through we must always try and keep the light within us alive.”
