The exuberant festival of Navratri brings with it a pinnacle of festivities that rejuvenates the emotions of the region not just through religious rituals but also through the fervour of spending it together with friends & family. Navratri signifies worshipping the Mother Goddess in her nine manifestations. It symbolizes the true underlying power that a woman possesses – the strength that we revere as Shakti: another name of Maa Durga. In one form, she is an ideal daughter, in the other is a loving wife, a caring mother, a ferocious warrior who protects her family and the world at large from the odds of evil. Her being is an essential cog in the wheel of our existence. Deeply rooted in our culture, this festival welcomes women power in its many forms. Rejoicing the spirit of womanhood, ZEE Biskope presents a festive fiesta that adores a woman’s strength, beauty, kindness and much more through “Naari Ek Roop Anek”. The festival from October 7-14 will screen eight female-fronted Bhojpuri films in the 12-noon band. The curtain falls on Dussehra with the ZEE Biskope Premiere of Bhojpuri Blockbuster Sabse Bada Mujrim on 15 Oct at 6 pm.
