"Hello everyone. Namastey, Namashkaar, Salaam. Sincere request from my side to all of you this year coming from the heart. Please don't burst firecrackers this Diwali. The condition that our country landed in last year due to pollution, the air that we were breathing was devastating," Yuvraj said.

"I could not get out of my house because the air was so polluted. It was unhealthy, it was unnatural. For our kids, friends, parents and everyone, it is very important we all take responsibility this year. It is a celebration of lights, festival of lights, let us all light diyas instead of fire crackers, spread love, peace and happiness," he said.
