All traditional festivals and social events have faced a setback since March 2020, due to Coronavirus as lockdown and social distancing became the new normal. Ganesh Festival was part of the complete lockdown, but with unlockdown initiated across the country, this season Navratri can be celebrated with more friends and family in a safe environment.
Every year we see celebrities also enjoying the festivals and visiting different pandals for celebration. While a similar opportunity seems far fetched amid a pandemic, here is a throwback to when there was no social distancing. Some of the actresses who are often seen celebrating the festival are Jaya Bachchan, Sushmita Sen, Mouni Roy, Rani Mukerji and Kajol.

Navratri is a family affair for Jaya Bachchan, who was born in a Bengali family. Every year the actress along with Shweta Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan is seen visiting Durga pooja pandals.
Last year, Aishwarya Rai and daughter Aaradhya were also seen taking part in Durga pooja festivities.
Jaya's Bengali roots are also evident in the fact that she has acted in several Bengali films, including Satyajit Ray's Mahanagar and Dhanyee Meye.
