Gold, silver or gadgets here’s what our celebs are buying this Dhanteras
Diwali is here and today is the first day of celebrations. It’s Dhanteras and everyone wants to usher in the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi into their homes. People buy gold, silver or utensils as shagun for good fortune and prosperity. BollywoodLife spoke to a few celebs to find out what they are planning to buy this Dhanteras...
This year I am participating in Power Couple. Rahul and I are planning to gift each other something on this Dhanteras and that’s a surprise. I pray to the Goddess that I get more love instead of more money.

Dhanteras means buying a gold coin, which my mom and wife do every year. This year they’ll do the same. Goddess Lakshmi has already blessed me enough. I don't want to be greedy. Their blessings are more than enough.
I will buy gold coins for our mandir at home in Delhi. Gold is considered lucky and has high value too. I am already blessed with a wonderful family. I want to see them happy always.
This year I am promoting an NGO, which sells diyas and other decorations. This NGO supports women education. I would request people not to waste money on crackers and instead use the money to light up someone else’s life. Our family is not into gifts for occasions. God has been very kind to us in blessing us with more than what we need.
Every year I buy a gold coin or gold jewellery on Dhanteras as it is considered auspicious. I seek blessings of Goddess Lakshmi to keep my family happy and healthy. Gold has high resale value and easy to keep too.
I am planning to buy a new gadget this Dhanteras. It will most probably be a new mobile for me. A new art piece for my home and a few silver coins are also on the wish-list. I will ask Goddess Lakshmi to keep all my family members and friends healthy and wealthy.
I will be in Argentina for Khatron Ke Khiladi 7 and my mom would be buying gold on my behalf in Mumbai. Gold is considered lucky
I never buy particularly anything just for the occasion of Dhanteras. Buying happens throughout the year. This is a good time to do Pooja. I seek blessings of Lakshmi maa to take care of my family. I wish they get looked after before me, especially my kids.
Every year I buy a silver coin. I had bought silver coins last year too. I like silver stuff at home. I want Goddess Lakshmi to bless me and my family with good health and prosperity. We keep this silver coin in our mandir when we do Lakshmi Pooja on Diwali.
Since the time I have started earning, I have always bought gold and silver coins, but this time I am planning to buy gold jewellery for myself. Last year, I bought a gold coin and a small silver Lakshmi coin. I want Lakshmi ji to always grace my home with her blessings.
I will buy gold for myself. I bought a house for myself last year. I want Goddess Lakshmi to bless me with good health, well being and prosperity.
I will buy a gold and silver coin. I bought a new phone for myself last year on Dhanteras.
