Bips to celebrate Durga Puja with John in Kolkata


This year Durga Puja celebration is going to have a different charm for Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu as she is taking her beau John Abraham with her to her hometown Kolkata. Along with Puja it would be a family bond as her two sisters Bidisha and Vijayeta are also flying to Kolkata to be with their parents. John and Bips are looking forward to this grand enjoyment.

 “It’s my mother’s birthday on Nabami (October 16), and I’m planning to give her a surprise. I’m also dying to see my niece (Bidisha’s three-year-old daughter), who I’ve not seen for a long time. Yes, it is going to be one big family reunion,” says Bipasha.

“Last time when I went with John it was pandemonium.”

The only thing that she misses about not celebrating Durga puja in Mumbai is not being able to spend time with her friend and actor Rani Mukerji at the Durga puja held by her family (organised by the North Bombay Sarbojonin Durga Puja Charitable Trust and supported by DNA).

“Attending the family puja organised by the Mukerji clan is a tradition that I’ve followed even when I was a model. It used to be the closest to my house. It’s around this time that I became friends with Rani and got close to the family. I have some fondest memories of the Durga puja there, after I moved to Mumbai. I am a regular there, and it has always kept me in touch with my roots,” she says.
