Sunita Williams greets Indians from space on Diwali
Williams expressed appreciation for the support she has received from people in India and for their "heartfelt sincere feelings for the work we are doing up here and how we are doing and for our safe return back home".
As she waved goodbye and floated off, Williams said she hopes to visit India next Diwali "to say thank you to all the people in person".
The interview would be telecast in 75 countries on the occasion of Diwali.
In August, the Indian-American astronaut had displayed the tricolour on board the International Space Station and wished Indians on the eve of their 66th Independence Day.
Williams along with Yuri Malenchenko of Russia and Japan's Akihiko Hoshide left for the ISS aboard a Russian spacecraft on July 15.
She holds the record of the longest spaceflight (195 days) for a female space traveller.
