It’s never too late to wish Subho Bijoya, as the hangover of the grand festival is still there in our mind. In fact it flows in our mind throughout the year. Pre puja the feeling is like “Pujo Ascche” and post puja we shout in joy “Ascche Bocchor Abar Hobey”. The hangover continues all the time.
During Puja I was in Mumbai for some work. As obvious I missed Kolkata badly each and every moment. The milieu of Kolkata dresses up in divinity and royalty. This striking look of Tilottama is very close to my heart which I missed very much. The city brightens up with some eye catching lightings that add extra pomp. The pandals also look mind blowing with the touch of lighting. Kolkata is renowned for Durga Puja and Adda. When the puja bells are ringing around everywhere then it cannot happen that Adda won’t be there. Puja and adda are inseparable. This is the thing I enjoy mostly in puja. Whenever I stay in Kolkata during puja I enjoy late night adda and fun with my friends. Every puja I wait for the bhog eagerly no matter how late it is. Enjoyment with spirituality that is what puja means to me. Though I had a hectic schedule in puja but I managed to attend my baba Biswajit Chatterjee’s puja there. It was like family get together. I was enjoying puja fullest there with everyone but still I was missing Kolkata as it has its own charm during pujas. Not only Durga Puja I missed Lakshmi Puja too. Kojagori Purnima is always special because of the delicious prasads.
I am now in Mount Abu for the shooting of my next Hindi film directed by Ankush Bhatt. Shooting schedule is very tight but whenever I get some free time I just go for walk to enjoy the scenic beauty. The beauty of Mount Abu is beyond everything. The chilled weather and the calm serenity of the mountains are so pure, so natural that it feels like heaven. As they say, sometimes silence is better than words as it helps one to find oneself in a better way. I am enjoying the food here very much. Food becomes tastier when it is shared with friend especially with new friends as it binds everyone in one string. It is always fun to work with new people. I love to work with new people as I get to learn a lot new things.
Ankush Bhatt is one of the finest directors. Just loved the way he brought out the character in the story. I am really excited for this project. As of now few more scenes left, to be shoot in Mount Abu.
Really enjoying the shooting here. I will be back within few days. See you soon. Take Care.
