The magic of Lalbagh Cha Raja is something that one has to experience to know. And there is a belief that all your wishes will get fulfilled if you pay a visit to the renowned mandal. And to have one such memorable darshan, Mohit Matoo who essays the role of Bittu Kaushik and Swati Bajpai aka Nimmi Kaushik of Zee TV’s Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein had to visit the pandal late in the night. They were accompanied by Divjot Sabarwal who plays the role of Karanitya in the show..
Here’s the duo explaining their experience…
Says Mohit, “Well, it is believed that only the lucky few get to have a darshan of Lalbagh Cha Raja. And we were lucky this time around (smiles). We had wanted to pay a darshan to the mandal, and decided to go at around 1 in the midnight. Divjot and Swati were there with me. We had a very good darshan and even got the sindoor from the God’s feet. Many devotees recognised us to be actors from Mrs. Kaushik.. and gave us superb feedbacks. All I can say is that I was blessed to be there.”
Swati too narrates yet another side to the interesting story, “Actually when Mohit invited me to accompany him, I was at the haldi ceremony of my very good friend. I thought it would be apt to go and have the darshan of Lalbagh without any make-up, that is without the influence of being actors. In fact, when we stood in the queue the guards present there did not allow us and this is when we had to tell him that we were actors (smiles). We then went in and had a very good darshan. I was simply amazed to see the huge mandal. When inside, many people gathered there recognised us to be actors and had a word with us. It was indeed a memorable experience which came to us without any big planning.”
All we can say on the day of Visarjan is that, ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya Pudhchya Varshi Laukar Ya’.
