'Jode Rejo Raaj'. "Following the tradition of my events, this time as well, I have selected songs in various languages, bringing in glimpse of diverse culture of India into one festival. Additionally, I am excited to use this opportunity and keeping Navratri in mind I have recreated an old Gujarati song Jode Rejo Raaj, which will serve perfect beats for Garba dancing." said, the singer.
This Navratri festival will also be interesting because after demonetization and GST, it will be the first religious and social program that will bring lakhs of people together. Borivali itself is a Gujarati locality and places like Kandivali and Dahisaralso have quite good number of Gujaratis. The location is so convenient that people can easily reach at the venue.
It is remarkable that last year, only Falguni Pathak was able to hold commercial Navratri because all the other organisers in Mumbai were not able to collect money by selling passes. Looking at this, there is no doubt that this year, Navratri Utsav of Dandiya Queen will get record break response from the people.
