Alia Bhatt flew off to Singapore earlier last week to shoot for Badrinath Ki Dulhania with Varun Dhawan but returned on Tuesday to bring in mom Soni Razdan’s 60th birthday.
On Thursday, she’ll be back in Singapore, working through Diwali. “We might have a pooja on the sets and wear festive clothes but that’s it,” informs the 23-year-old actress whose fondest memory of the festival is making rangolis with her nanny. “I burnt my finger when I was six. I threw a sparkler and it landed on a bench. Since I didn’t want anyone to sit on it, I picked it up and burnt my finger. Mom consoled me saying the hurt would go away because I’d been good and saved someone else from getting hurt.”
