Last year, after Mumbai lost out to Gujarat where both of the entertainers went to perform, this year, it is time for a little Raas Garba as they are back in town and ready to perform at Sankalp and Ghatkopar respectively. When Pathak performed at Ankleshwar last year, a few die-hard fans from Mumbai followed here there and held placards requesting her to come back to the city and it seems that it worked.

Preeti Dave of the famous duo confirmed the news and said, "It feels good that we are back home. Ahmedabad is our home town but it's been 10 years that we have been performing in Mumbai and this year we will ensure that we take the city by storm."

The common man is rejoicing as the icons head home. Palak Gandhi, an ardent dandiya fan, said, "Dancing during navratri on Bollywood songs is no fun and with the return of Pathak and Preeti and Pinky we can dance to Gujarati songs and have a blast."

And it is not just fans that are rejoicing but organisers too are please with the news. Devendra Joshi from Sankalp, where Falguni Pathak performs confirmed that she would be performing for Sankalp. "She had better offers but rejected all of them to perform for us."
