The year 2020 has been memorable in more ways than one. The Hindi film industry particularly has seen an unrest like no other and the loss of several great actors and personalities over the last few months. Legendary actors like Irrfan and Rishi Kapoor passed away in a span of 24 hours and left a deep void among their fans, co-stars, family and friends. As the festive season approaches, Bollywood, which is also known for its grand Diwali parties will be scaling it down this year. 

According to a latest report in Mumbai Mirror, the Bachchans and Ekta Kapoor, who throw some of the biggest Diwali parties every year have cancelled their plans this year. Given the Covid-19 pandemic and Rishi Kapoor's demise, the festive season will definitely be missing the sparkle. As per the report, the Bachchan's lost Ritu Nanda (Rishi Kapoor's sister and Shweta Bachchan's mother-in-law) earlier this year in January. Whereas, Rishi Kapoor passed away in April 2020. 

Given these two huge losses to both the families, the Bachchans have planned to not host a Diwali party this year. Not to forget, the Bachchans themselves have witnessed the coronavirus with Big B, Abhishekh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daufghter Aaradhya testing positive. 

As for Ekta Kapoor, the producer's shindig often sees the entire television industry come together. However, she too has no plans of throwing a party given the current situation. Well, we hope next year will be brighter and better. Check out last year's pictures below.

These few families think Bollywood belongs to them not realizing the very ground they are standing is shaking. I live abroad but have decided not to watch films that only promote established actors like the kapoor, bachans and The khans. I also know many Indians abroad who are disgusted at Bollywood’s silence in SSR death and have since then stopped watching Bollywood. And as for this old bachan lady she needs to stay in her lane. Why is she taking her personal vendetta to the parliament?

The rich heritage that you talk of involves suppression of women and suppression of selected group of people due to caste system. Based on which people are denied educated and women and little girls are brutality raped on a regular basis. How are women treated in your family?

Okay dokey Mr or Miss 4th generation cult member of didi's..lol! Do tell how women are STILL treated in your family since you are in support of this vendetta that involved a media trial and a witchhunt of a woman like the medieval times? Is your family known for torturing and suppressing daughter in laws or girlfriends in the lives of men in your family as well that you are supportive of this cult like movement that didi initiated that basically ruined her brother's name too.

Yep! Followers of the cult that didi generated, supporters of media trial and witch hunt that promotes suppression of women in India. Something India is known for. India is also known as the most unsafe country for women in the world. Check out reuters foundation and you will see. This didi cult has recruited people who are easy to emotionally fool. Low EQ?? Calling a suicide in the case of bipolar a murder. You cult members of didi have ruined the reputation of someone who had worked hard to create after his demise. 4th generation, interesting! So how exactly are women still treated in your family after 4 generations of living abroad? 4 generations later, still torture and suppress others in the name of a caste system as still done in India? I read on NPR news that recent immigrants have now brought the caste system to the silicon valley so after 4 generations, do you still choose to live as so?

Ok so im 4th generation not 5th but i can tell you Bollywood is not what ties us instead what ties us is our rich heritage from our ancestors and their homeland. I am not swayed but i dont allow for a murder to happen and get swept under. There are far too many questions then answers. So dont make a ASSumption because you been here “long” there are natives longer then you of a country doesnt make them superior!

I second that im not from India and my friends family and I are no longer going to watch bollywood films out of that fact none of these people have spoken up for Sushant. They do things out of respect for Rishi but disregard and are silent for Sushant. Im pretty disgusted just like the original poster says. So many of us are.

Weirdo! Living abroad still didn't broaden your mind. Many of us living abroad don't give a damn about this stupidity that didi generated. She created a cult and you are a follower of it. I still love Bollywood.

I also live abroad. Infact, my ancestors left india 5 generations ago . Bollywood is the only think that ties us to our indian roots, otherwise it's a pretty shit culture that makes me ashamed. You must be first generation immigrant to get swayed by the SSRian cult movement that didi started. Keep your closed minded attitude and don't make it sound as if you are speaking for all Indians living abroad. Speak only for your cult members living abroad.

There are talented actors from this family..ots not their fault that they are born to some one who is already established

They know very well that the public will boycott all AB movies and shows if he hosts a Diwali party this year on top of Covid, SSR etc. Also social gathering not allowed in covid unless he plans to host a less than 20 ppl gathering which is meh. Rishi Kapoor is a nice excuse but the real reason is SSR and covid. Public is not fool so stop joking.

Now please don’t say why they didn’t scrap the parties for SSR? They have known Rishi longer and knew him better. Don’t become illogical. I am just preempting the comments that will follow this post.

It's a cult mentality. Doesn't matter what's right or wrong. Their moral wheel is over-shadowed by all that didi instigates and brain washes them into believing. Cult like behavior.

So tru...even these warriors have lost the support from ankita arnab and kangana...everything they rant is ssr..

You are absolutely correct here!

Yes. Kapoor's and Bachchan's are very close and are distant relatives also. Remember how Abhishek was present at Rishi ji's funeral as a support system. They're really close. Big B and Rishi ji were good frnds. That's why Bachchan's won't have any party of diwali this year. Neither ekta kapoor 's family will have celebration this year bcz Jeetandra also have known Kapoor's since long. So plz do not rant SSR SSR..

And on account of COVID?!

They would have kept the celebration small because of COVID, but quiet because of Rishi Kapoor.

Nah.. Covid can't stop us from celebrating.
