These popular celebrities made it a point to honour Mahalaya 2020. Enjoy!

In Bengal, every year before Durga Puja, we get ready for the festive season by welcoming Devi Ma on Mahalaya. Traditionally, Bengalis mark this special occasion by waking up at dawn to listen to a recital of Mahishasura Mardini– the tale of how Goddess Durga fought against the evil Asura and emerged victoriously. This year, Mahalaya falls on September 17, and we got you a glimpse into the celebrations by your favourite stars. Check them out!

Watch Mahalaya 2020 – Durga Saptasati below:

"আশ্বিনের শারদপ্রাতে, বেজে উঠেছে আলোক মঞ্জীর।।।" মহালয়া নিয়ে আসে আমাদের প্রিয় উৎসবের আগমনী বার্তা। আজ চারিদিকের বিষাদের মধ্যে থেকেও আমরা সবাই মিলে খুঁজে নিই একটু আনন্দ, একটু উৎসবের মেজাজ। আজ দেবীপক্ষের সূচনার মধ্যে দিয়েই আমরা সবাই একসাথে অন্ধকার সরিয়ে গেয়ে উঠি আগমনীর আনন্দগান। মহালয়ার পুণ্য তিথিতে, মহামায়ার কাছে এই প্রার্থনা জানিয়ে সকলকে জানাই আমার আন্তরিক প্রীতি, শুভেচ্ছা ও অভিনন্দন। #debipokkho
