Julia Roberts wished everyone a happy Diwali in a leading English daily in India. She further added that Diwali and Christmas are the same as both are festivals of lights and good spirits.
The recent convert to Hinduism admits to having developed her liking for the religion at a young age. She was always very deeply fascinated by the many facets of multi dimensional Hinduism. Roberts, however, took a serious interest in the religion after seeing a picture of Hanuman devotee Neem Karoli Baba at a temple she once visited with her family. The picture sparked a curiosity in her that was followed by a thorough research on Hinduism.
From sporting bindis to practicing yoga, the pretty woman has gone to the extent of naming her production company 'Red Om Films' and 'Om' in Hinduism signifies the first breath of creation. Roberts, who calls herself a practicing Hindu, also enjoys her trips to India and hopes to visit the sacred land as often as she can.
