Given that our favourite celeb crew loves to party, it should come as little surprise that the past week has played host to a series of grand Diwali shindigs, from Shah Rukh Khan’s big blowout at Mannat to Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s house party. And after all the party-hopping, it was time to go back to family, as A-listers took to Instagram to allow fans a peek into their homes on the auspicious eve of Diwali.

Mindful of the new regulations on the use of firecrackers, Bollywood’s best instead chose to spread the light and warmth in different ways. Alia Bhatt collaborated with a team of volunteers to feed over 500 dogs across seven cities, before winding up the night with Karan Johar and his fresh batch of ‘students’: Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria, from the cast of Student of the Year 2. The proud daddy, himself, was spotted twinning with his toddler in coordinated Manish Malhotra kurtas. Elsewhere, celebrity It-couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma made for an elegant portrait in their traditional garb against the backdrop of their brightly-lit home in Mumbai.

The glamorous Bachchan clan chose to keep their celebrations family-only, and stepped outside after the Lakshmi puja to introduce young Aaradhya to the joy of sparklers. The proud mamas of the Kapoor clan, Kareena and Karisma, dolled up with their kids, with Taimur sporting a regal black kurta for the occasion. Bride-to-be Priyanka Chopra also spent some time off with her family in Mumbai before her nuptials, while Lisa Haydon ushered in some festive cheer against the glittering Hong Kong skyline. Second time parents, Mira and Shahid Kapoor snuggled up to make for a cosy picture on Instagram, and she was later spotted bonding with her brother-in-law and Bollywood debutante, Ishaan Khatter.

Scroll onwards to see how your favourite celebrities lit up the night with their families during Diwali 2018.
