Bollywood actor Sushmita Sen performs dhunachi naach at Durga Puja pandal in Mumbai
Bollywood star Sushmita Sen celebrated Durga Puja at a pandal with her two adopted daughters Renee and Alisah in Bandra, Mumbai.

Sen invariably performs at Durga Puja pandals during Navratri by making public appearances.

This time, she performed frenzied dhunachi naach with her daughters at a Durga Puja pandal in Mumbai. Later she shared the video on the net with her fans which became quite popular.

Sushmita looked stunning in red blouse and a beige saree and danced gracefully holding an incandescent earthen pot or 'dumuchi' stacked with burning wood charcoal, coconut husk and camphor. Her daughters were also in Bengali dresses.

The dhunachi, as a flared shaped earthen pot or censer, is often held by a stem. It is lit with incense made of resin called 'dhuno' or 'dhoop' that gives out pleasant white smoke

During the Durga puja in eastern India and other places where a sizable population of Bengalis live, feverish and fast dhunuchi naach is performed to the accompaniment of dhak rolls or drum beats during Durga puja.

At many places, Dhunachi Naach contests are organised for the best performance with one, two and three censers, and often, the third one held between the teeth.
