“It was an unforgettable Diwali. My father gave me a 500 note and asked me to burn it. I was shocked and asked him why he asked me to do such a thing. He told me, ‘But that’s exactly what you do. You buy crackers and crack them. What if you use the money to buy some chocolates and give them to the needy,” the actress said.
She added: “I must have been a girl of about 9 or 10 years old. I remember going to the candy store, buying candy and distributing it to the homeless. I felt a different kind of happiness that day and since then I I no longer cracked crackers.”
