For as long as she can remember, Rani Mukerji has been closely associated with her family puja, the North Bombay Sarbojanin Durga Puja Samiti. The fact that this year she has been busy with her shoot has been a dampener of sorts for her. Talking exclusively to Bombay Times she says, “I have been missing the usual fun and festive atmosphere that we have during these five days as I am shooting for my next film, but I managed to visit the pandal one day. This year our Protima (Durga Maa idol) is beautiful and mesmerising and the décor is probably one of the best we have seen.”
The actress has always loved the grand celebrations, but due to the pandemic, the festivities have been low-key, keeping in mind the protocols and restrictions.
Rani’s daughter Adira, too, has already had a few Durga Puja moments and for the actress, those have been precious times.
