Kolkata, Sep 25 (PTI) Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, who considers Kolkata, capital city of the eastern Indian state West Bengal, as her second home, on Thursday said she makes it to the city every Durga Puja.
“I somehow make it to Kolkata during Durga Puja every year. I have always said that Kolkata is my second home,” Balan told reporters here after launching a jewellery showroom.
Recalling her memories of the festival during the shooting of the superhit 2012 film ‘Kahaani’, she said, “I had seen it very closely that time as it (‘Kahaani’) was shot during the Pujas. I remember feeling very sad at the time of immersion of the idol.”
The National Award-winning actress, known for her works like ‘Parineeta’ and ‘The Dirty Picture’, said it is a co-incidence that this year also she is in Kolkata after Mahalaya.
