The fragrance of dhunuchi, the beat of the dhaak, marigold garlands shaped like alpana and a resplendent Durga.... With less than a month to go for the Pujas, Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma were in for a surprise when we recreated a makeshift Puja mandap at The Oberoi Grand with the help of the hotel staff for a one-of-a-kind shoot — only for t2 — on Thursday.

“This looks so nice! Puja has come early!” said Varun, who, along with Anushka, was in Calcutta to talk about their Friday film Sui Dhaaga. And the Bollywood stars looked absolutely ready for a round of pandal-hopping! He in a baby-pink kurta and white pyjamas; she in a black Sabyasachi badla kurta with a marori border, teamed with a badla dupatta.

“Wow, I really want to dance with this!” Varun on spotting the dhunuchi. They picked dhunuchi naach up in no time.

Varun and Anushka happen to be mishti lovers. We handed them a plate of sweets. Varun took a piece of a kalakand, while Anushka held on to the plate and nibbled.

Always sporting, Varun broke into a jig as the dhaak played on one of our cell phones.

Varun coaxed, “Let’s do this together”, she joined him for a step or two. We’re going to try that step for our bhashan dance this year!

Varun and Anushka say “namaste” to t2 readers at Gharana, the venue for the t2 shoot at The Oberoi Grand, which will host the Grand Pujor Mahabhoj, available from Saptami to Dashami for lunch and dinner.
