As India celebrated the festival of lights on Wednesday, Bollywood stars too spent the auspicious day amid love, laughter and their loved ones, wishing for a happy and prosperous year ahead.

From the Bachchans to the Kapoors, here’s how B-Town celebrated Diwali this year:

Amitabh Bachchan

The 76-year-old took to social media to share several images with family—wife Jaya Bachchan, son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and granddaughter Aaradhya Bachchan.

In one of the photos from the pooja, the Bachchans—all dressed in white—pose with folded hands. In another, they are seen lighting ‘phooljhadis’.

Aishwarya too shared photos with Abhishek and Aaradhya.
