Kolkata, Sept 19 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Popular Bengali film actor Koyel Mullick will be playing Goddess Durga at special show titled ‘Durga Durgotinashini’ to be aired on Star Jalsha channel on occasion of Mahalaya (invoking the Goddess) on Sept 27.
Mahalaya is an auspicious occasion which is observed seven days before the Durga Puja that heralds the advent of Maa Durga. Early in the morning on Mahalaya, the Goddess starts her journey from her husband’s heavenly abode at Mt. Kailash in the Himalayas, and descends down to the earth to her mother’s home.
Maa Durga, who is the face of supreme power and an iconic symbol of the rich Bengali culture, also perfectly exemplifies the religious beliefs held by every Bengali.
The spirit of the Goddess simultaneously resonates the ruthlessness of a demon slayer and the fierce compassion of the Jag Janani (mother of the world). Considering which Koyel Mullick had to really work hard on her facial expressions, so that the execution of such an in depth role is carried to its tee.
Durga Durgotinashini will not only merely celebrate Maa Durga’s homecoming but will also showcase how Maa Durga is looked upon and worshipped as a figure of divine power and courage by her devotees, how she armed with a variety of weapons destroyed the demon (Mahisasur) and restored back peace and happiness into the World.
