I enjoy looking out of my window and whenever I go out on a drive, I see all the jhankiya happening around. I am from Delhi and this type of surrounding is only found there on Diwali."
Pratik also recalled the festival when he first came to Mumbai. "Every memory is very special for me. I remember when I came to Mumbai, I used to live with my friends, we used to go down and see all the jhankis. It was a very good time," he shared.
