Veteran actor & organiser of Debu Mukherjee & Krishna Mukherjee says "We had to shift the venue because, with Maa Durga's blessings Tulip Star has settled their dispute & re opening as V Hotels very soon. Years back it was shut down due to legal dispute, which is why we decided to keep our Durga Puja at Tulip Star, Juhu. Now since they are in the process to reopen the venue, we decided to shift our venue"
Over the years, the celebrations have grown by ten folds, and with maximum participation from people, the organisers felt the need to shift the venue due to space constraint "Also over the years the footfall has increased. Thankfully, the new place is bigger and will be able to accommodate more devotees" adds Debu Mukherjee & Krishna Mukherjee.
