Five-day long Durga Puja is coming to an end on October 19. As per Hindu mythology, goddess Durga killed Chando and Mundo — two ‘asuras’ or demons at the confluence (sandhi) of Mahaashtami and Mahanavami. The Goddess was worshipped as the undefeated – and offered her favourite food items. The five-day festival is considered the biggest event for Bengalis.
Actor Sushmita Sen is of the countless people making the most of the Navrtari-Durga Puja festivities. The former Miss Universe took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a video of her doing the traditional Dhunuchi Naach with her two daughters Renee and Alisah.
The 42-year-old captioned the video as: “#dhunuchinaach 💃🏻😍🎵What a #divine feeling dancing with my babies in celebration of #shakti 😊❤️ May the #incense burn strong & spread #positivity #love #hope & #kindness where ever it flows!!!🙏❤️😍 #notunpollidurgotsav #sharing #happiness#duggadugga 💃🏻🎉😇 I love you guys!!! (sic),” Sushmita captioned the video.
Sushmita, who hasn’t got married yet, has adopted both her daughters — Reene in 2000 and Alisah in 2010.
