Manyavar and Virat Kohli came together to usher in an early Diwali for the underprivileged kids at Dharavi. The initiative was to make Diwali celebrations a little more inclusive by ensuring that we spread the cheer and festivities of Diwali with one and all.
Manyavar Diwali celebration was a star-studded affair, where Virat Kohli was joined by Armaan Malik, Umesh Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Manjot Kalra, Satnam Singh and many others. The kids were elated to celebrate with these stalwarts and the happy smiling faces said it all. What ensued was fun, dance, gifts and laughter!
Not to forget the fabulous musical performance the kids at Dharavi Reloaded put up for all the players. Virat & Shreyas showed their killer dance moves while Armaan hit a few notes with the Dharavi Reloaded kids. The kids looked colourful while the celebs looked dapper in their Manyavar kurtas and jackets!
The thought behind Manyavar’s ‘India Ethnic Week’ celebration is rooted in the fact that Diwali isn’t just a day-long affair; preparations start in advance. The festivities also begin two days before Diwali, from Dhanteras onward and go on till two days after Diwali, till Bhai Dooj. Each day has its own set of religious rituals, social customs, traditions and fun; being dressed in ethnic wear, adds to the #FestiveWaaliFeeling.
While talking about the performance of Dharavi Reloaded kids at Manyavar Diwali celebration, Virat exclaimed, “They are so good! Chhote chhote se hai but look at them…the way they have come up and how hard they have worked…it’s commendable! And in their Indian outfit they look so good. I think my Diwali is made guys. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for making this so memorable and entertaining.”
