“I had never realized that organizing an annual function for your dance school with so many students can be such a hectic task. For the last two months, my students, their parents and I have been working very hard to organize this function. We have put in a lot of effort for the show. I just hope everyone likes the show. It is now that I realize the amount of effort the students in other dance schools put in for organizing the annual shows every year” said the actress in between getting her makeup done and hair styled. In a green full sleeved dress and a green dupatta on her head, the actress looked pretty. She posed with her students for photographs. The bubbly actress helped her students to get ready for the show and also entertained the guests.


The event began with the song “Godhuli kano sesh j na hoi”. After the song, Arijit Ganguly (Gada of Tapur Tupur) took the stage and interacted with the audience. He also shed light on the hard work that Muffin has been doing with her students. He gave credit to Muffin for her energy to run a dance school even after working for long hours at shooting.
