People largely experience the grandeur and creative excellence exhibited during Durga Pujo but only few know the heroes behind the scenes of this vibrant festival.

Hence, Asian Paints brings in all its glory, a heartfelt tribute to the People of Kolkata with its most talked-about property - Sharad Shamman People Of Pujo Season 4. The new season features extraordinary stories of six Heroes of Pujo who add a different meng to the Pujo celebration itself. It also pays a posthumous tribute to the man who balanced his duties towards the country and his love for family traditions with equal passion - an ardent educationalist, illustrious politician, and Bharat Ratna Awardee, Pranab Mukherjee.

Asian Paints Sharad Shamman People Of Pujo campaign was initiated in 2016. This initiative celebrates the life of certain people who make Pujo very special for millions of us and for whom Pujo is just not another festival. It is a significant part of their lives. And with their unconditional effort, contribution and works, they give a new meng altogether to Durga Pujo. #PeopleOfPujo is a series of micro-tales spinning around the lives of the heroes of Durga Pujo who we rarely come across.

Without the collective efforts of all these individual's tales, the grandeur of Durga Puja would have been lost. With People Of Pujo, we celebrate the lives of such Pujo Heroes who have unconditionally contributed to Durga Pujo celebrations.
