“Every year, my family and I go to pandals for darshan and have bhog, which has been
offered to Ma Durga. This year too, I’ll be with my family. Four days pass so fast! Also, I’m very excited as I will be appearing for a Dandiya event in Rajkot too,” she gushes.
Rupali Ganguly, from the show Parvarrish, adds, “Like always, this year too I’ll celebrate Durga Puja with my family and close friends. We will go pandal hopping and eat some really delicious sweets.”

Aamir Ali — better known as Dr Anirudh of Hongey Judaa Na Hum — will be travelling during the festive season. “I am travelling to a couple of cities with my wife Sanjeeda for Navratri. I like the fun and celebration which happens during the festive season. I am glad to be travelling and performing as well,” he claims.
