Arpita Chatterjee, the renowned actress, known for her busy schedule throughout the year, makes a special yearly appearance at her home in Ballygunge, Kolkata, on the auspicious occasion of Kojagari Lakshmi Puja. This festival holds a unique significance in her heart.
Arpita, who spends most of her time away from the city due to work commitments, shares the screen with Prosenjit Chatterjee only on this special day. The rest of the year keeps them apart, but the bond they share on Kojagari Lakshmi Puja is evident to all. This annual tradition is celebrated with grandeur at their residence in Tolipara, and this year, it arrived a day earlier.
Preparations for this joyous occasion commenced from the night before. On the day of Kojagari Lakshmi Puja, Arpita personally cooks the sacred bhog for her mother, and their relatives gather at their abode to partake in the festivities. Prosenjit Chatterjee’s residence aptly bears the name ‘Utsav,’ symbolizing the grandeur of the occasion.
While Arpita lovingly prepares the feast for her mother, the entertainment industry remains abuzz with activity. Prosenjit actively participates in the puja rituals. Kojagari Lakshmi Puja is not the sole celebration; it is coupled with Satyanarayan Puja, and the beloved “Bumbada” takes charge of the sinni makha ceremony, a role he traditionally fulfills.
This year brings no exception, as Arpita returned to Kolkata a day prior to the festivities. Her dedication and involvement in the rituals are as strong as ever, and the family cherishes this time together.
It’s worth noting that last year, the release of the movie “Dasham Avatar,” featuring Prosenjit, coincided with this significant occasion. Directed by Srijit Mukherjee, the film received rave reviews and garnered success at the box office, showcasing the actor in a stellar performance.
In a world filled with bustling schedules and work commitments, the annual Kojagari Lakshmi Puja stands as a beacon of tradition and family unity for Arpita Chatterjee, Prosenjit Chatterjee, and their loved ones. This heartfelt celebration encapsulates the spirit of togetherness and devotion amidst the glamour of the film industry.
