Watch: Deepika’s Diwali celebrations with her parents in this ad


With the Dusshera, Dhanteras and Diwili round the corner, festive spirit has filled the air. While people are planning how to celebrate the festivities, major brands are cashing in on the occasion. Products and services are offering discounts, free gifts and also making their advertisements around the theme of the festivals.

While celebrities featuring in commercials are not an unusual thing, Jewellery brand Tanishq has roped in Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone along with her family – mother Ujjala and father Prakash Padukone, a former badminton champion, for a beautiful ad film.

The commercial stresses upon celebrating Diwali, the festival of lights with one’s family. The ad shows Deepika preparing the house for the festival. Her father is seen decorating the home with a colourful rangoli and her mother making sweets and lighting lamps. They are also shown giving and receiving gifts.

Deepika wakes up from bed and says this time too you’ll get up to the sound of bursting crackers, and get to work without the morning coffee. She watches her father showing off his artistry with a rangoli and smiles. Every Diwali same things are repeated like making heaps of sweets, arranging string of lights and lamps, and wishing ‘happy Diwali’. She is thrilled to find her gift, a jewellery set, in the same corner and runs to hug her father as her mother watches their ‘melodrama’.

Deepika says over the years, nothing has changed in their Diwali celebrations, but says when the festivities are all so beautiful there is absolutely no need to change them.

Deepika has earlier appeared in advertisements separately with both her parents. She did an ad film with her mother for the same jewellery brand on the occasion of Mother's Day. With her father she did for the emulsion brand Asian paints.
