sayantani: Sayantani Ghosh: I miss the celebration of Kali Pujo in Kolkata
She further adds, âIn Calcutta, in the middle of Amavasya, we offer Pushpanjali to Maa Kali, so going to Kali Mandir at night and praying, chanting mantras is a whole different feeling. I miss it all here.
The actress says the first few years in Mumbai were difficult for her during festivals, but now she also considers Mumbai her home. âThe very first year I came here, it was difficult for me since I was very young, and staying away from my family was difficult. After spending 15-16 years in this city, I now fully connect with it. I remember my first Diwali in Mumbai was very emotional because it made me nostalgic and I wanted to go back to Calcutta. I have always been a family person and staying away during a festival was very difficult. I believe a festival isn’t just about popping crackers and having fun; there are tons of emotions attached to it, âsays Sayantani.
