For Imtiaz, the festival holds a strong significance in his life. It's like a homecoming for the 'Jab We Met' filmmaker. "Coming to this Durga Puja is like an earthing circuit for me. This is my home, and coming here every year is nothing less than homecoming. If I don't come here, then I feel incomplete," he said.
Veteran actor Jaya Bachchan along with filmmaker Anurag Basu and Imtiaz Ali also visited the pandal to seek blessings from the deity.
