Navratri is at its peak in India and everywhere the Durga temples and pandals are full of devotees lining up to take darshan and do puja. Celebrities like Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Jaya Bachchan, Tanisha Mukherjee. Sumona Chakravarti are regular visitors of Durga puja performed in Mumbai.
Dhanuchi is a special form of dance-puja that is performed in front of the Goddess Durga to celebrate victory over evil, her valour, and her bravery.
A day ago Sushmita Sen was in the limelight for performing Dhanuchi along with her daughter Renee at a Durga puja. Yesterday in the evening Rani Mukerji and Tanisha Mukherjee also performed Dhanchi. Wearing an olive green saree Rani joined other members at the pandal.
After doing a few traditional steps, Rani started dancing in a typical Bollywood style and enjoyed it with everyone else around. A more mesmerising dance was performed by The Kapil Sharma Show fame Sumona Chakravarti who danced with Dhanuchi in her mouth which is generally the way this dance is performed in front of Goddess Durga.
Wearing a red saree, Sumona looked gorgeous and beautiful as she concentrated on performing Dhanuchi along with the other devotees. She surprised the other devotees with their grace and perfection.
Kajol gave a miss to this ritual which was quite surprising as she is a regular at the Durga puja. However, she was spotted regularly visiting the puja venue for the last couple of days along with her son Yug.
She even happily posed with Jaya Bachchan and other relatives during her visit and impressed her social media followers with her choice of sarees on various occasions.
Other celebrities like Janhvi Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, and Bipasha Basu were also spotted attending Durga Puja at different venues.
