Kajol, Rani Mukherjee, Sushmita Sen, Shreya Ghosal, Alka Yagnik, Shaan, Imtiaz Ali, Ashutosh Gowariker, Anurag Basu, Pritam, Ayan Mukherjee, Sumona Chakravarti and Bappi Lahiri among others sought blesssing from Goddess Durga on the occasion of Durga Puja.

Durga Puja, one of the biggest festivals in India, was celebrated from October 10 to 14.

According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Durga, accompanied by her four children - Ganesh, Kartik, Lakshmi and Saraswati - descends to earth every year to visit her parents. This is the occasion that the Puja celebrates.

Durga, it is believed, stays for five days to eradicate evil from earth before returning to her husband, Lord Shiva, at Kailash on Dashami (10th day).

Durga, the slayer of the demon Mahishasur, sits astride a lion and wields an array of weapons in her 10 hands.

Here are some snaps of Bollywood biggies celebrating Durga Puja.
