For actress Vidya Balan, Diwali is all about brightness and hope.

Walking down memory lane, Vidya reveals, as a child she used to wake up early in the morning, take bathe, wear new clothes, go to temple and burst crackers.
“Diwali time was all about meeting relatives, friends and neighbours I cherish those memories. Over the years, while everything else remains same, except waking up that early and bursting crackers. Also one doesn’t get the opportunity to visit relatives on that day because you get stuck in traffic,” she said on a lighter note.
