Rani Mukerji’s familiar face won’t be spotted serving bhog to guests during the first three days of Durga Puja in Mumbai. She will be away in Australia and Malaysia from Oct 4-11 for the Temptations Reloaded show along with Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Jacqueline Fernandez, Meiyang Chang and Yo Yo Honey Singh.

The puja this year is from October 9 to 14 (panchami to bijoyadashami) Rani will return to the city on October 12.

Says a source, “When she was asked to join the TR shows, Rani took time to mull over the decision, as she’s always been present at the Mukerji’s Durga Puja. It’s been a tradition for years ever since family patriarch Shashadhar Mukerji started it at their Santa Cruz bungalow.

For the last few years, their family puja is held on the grounds of a five star hotel in the city. The puja has become a grand event. The family tends to the thousands who flock to the grounds to pay obeisance the Maa Durga deity and personally serve bhog to their family and friends.

Saying yes to the show meant not be present this year, so she was hesitant. But when SRK made a special request to her to join the troupe, she agreed immediately.”

The source adds that the Durga Puja this year is a special one for Rani and the Mukerji family. “Aditya Chopra and his mother Pamela are expected to make an appearance.

Rani and Pam have become extremely close post Yash Chopra’s demise last year and Rani is keen that her future Maa-in-law attend the pujas this year and make it a family occasion.”

This year, the Bengal Trust's puja at Vashi has upped the ante, with a whopping Rs5 crore puja and none other than Shah Rukh Khan leading the star parade.

Back in 1930 when the first Durga idol came to Mumbai from Varanasi, city’s Bengalis held the first puja celebrations at the Tejpal auditorium near Grant Road.

Over the years, even as the Tejpal puja held its significance for the purists, most migrated from South Mumbai to the larger and grander pandals away from the heart of the city.

After Shivaji Park, and Lokhandwala, Vashi emerged as a big draw at the turn of the century. And this year, the Bengal Trust’s puja at Vashi, which starts today, has upped the ante, with a whopping Rs5 crore puja and none other than Shah Rukh Khan leading the star parade.

The man behind the steady rise of the Vashi puja is Bengal Trust president Asit Ghosh. After being at the helm of the New Bombay Bengali Association, Ghosh left in 2009 after a bitter fallout with fellow members. He returned after a couple of years with his own puja under the Bengal Trust banner. Backed by a battery of sponsor-friends, Ghosh has silenced his critics not only in Navi Mumbai, but made his mark in Mumbai’s Bengali community.

“Most of the funds have been provided by my classmates and friends whom I have known for years. It is because of the camaraderie I share with them that they wholeheartedly shell out such huge amounts,” says Ghosh, adding that his friends have so much faith in him that they don’t even turn up to visit the puja to see how their money is being utilised.

Puja action moves from SoBo to satellite city

While SRK, Bipasha Basu, Sunidhi Chauhan, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal and a string of visiting celebrities will lend glamour to the Vashi puja, the 28-feet idol of Durga housed in the 90-foot-tall replica of the Belur Math will be the biggest attraction for devotees. “We expect more than 3 lakh devotees for the five-day festivities,” says Ghosh.

Ghosh may have pipped Mumbai’s biggest pujas in the popularity stakes, but his detractors are much nearer home.

“Bengal Trust’s puja is about entertainment and ours is about tradition and culture,” says the committee member of another Vashi puja, which has a fraction of Ghosh’s budget.

But Bengalis in Mumbai are excited about the Vashi puja. “Till 10 years ago, when our family was out for the puja visits, we started with Tejpal and ended the day at Lokhandwala. And now the Vashi puja is the one we most look forward to,” says Kalina resident Teertho Chatterjee.
