Showering his praises on the organisers, he said, Koradi hamare yaha aastha or shraddha ka sthaan hai and more than one lac devotees from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh visit Koradi during Navratri to take blessings from Goddess Durga.

It was a treat for the devotees when Gulshan Grover recited some of his famous dialogues for them. Needless to say, they all whistled and cheered after that!

Actresses Juhi Chawla and Nishiganda Wad were also given a warm welcome when they arrived to perform the Maha aarti? on the third day. Juhi, who looked stunning in her yellow outfit, confessed that it was great to be present at the festival.

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi and Bhojpuri superstar Manoj Tiwari were present on the last day for performing the Maha aarti. Vivek whose flight had got delayed arrived a bit late at the occasion. Vivek while speaking to devotees urged them to pray for the soldiers. He said, The nine days of Navratri are all about happiness and celebrations. While we all are enjoying these celebrations with our loved ones, there are soldiers who are far away from their families and protecting our country. I request everyone here to pray for our soldiers and their well being.
