In fact, the director says he has no plan to celebrate Diwali.
He tweeted: “I wish a very unhappy Diwali to those who create misery to birds and animals using noise and dazzling fire light as torture weapons. I wish very unhappy Diwali to people who raise noise levels of crackers to unbearable levels torturing unwell old people and vulnerable babies.”
“I wish a very unhappy Diwali to all those who release poisonous fumes of zinc, sodium, magnesium and potassium through their crackers. I wish a very unhappy Diwali to all those who don’t even know what ‘narakasura’ did that they have to celebrate his death.”
Varma, who is busy shooting the third instalment of the popular crime-movie “Sarkar” with megastar Amitabh Bachchan, added: “Finally I wish a very very happy Diwali to all those who do not celebrate Diwali…As per me everyday is a Diwali for me.”
