A week long Kolkata trip made actress Pooja Banerjee a happy soul

Actress Pooja Banerjee who is playing the character of Nivedita Basu in Kasautii Zindagii Kay had a fun work trip to the city of joy. Pooja was there for a week and had loads of fun. Speaking about her trip she says,”Being a Bengali Kolkata is very close to me. I miss being here and also miss Bengali food. This time I made it a point to get all the pleasures which I usually miss in Mumbai. I have been to some best restaurants of Kolkata and had Daab Chingri, Bhapa Hilsa, Prawn Malai Curry amongst many other delicacies in Kolkata. Bengali Sweets were also there in ample quantities!” Pooja has also been to temples in Kolkata and she adds, “My mother told me that Maa Kali gives strength and will always help me in being victorious. Since I was into swimming from a very young age I would pray to her and also go for Kali poojas even if I was travelling. This time I have I visited Dakhineshwar temple, Kalighat and Belur Math – three of the holiest places in Kolkata.” She also adds,”I miss Kolkata so much. It’s a wonderful and colourful city. The city made the unit of Kasautii very comfortable. This was the first time I went to Kolkata for my shoot. I came here before for a swimming competition and for my wedding shopping as well. This stay was the longest and will stay in my memory forever.”
