It’s that time of the year when the chants of “Ganpati Bappa Morya” fill the air, and people dance their hearts out to welcome Lord Ganesha to their homes. People across the country celebrate the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, and it is extremely prominent in Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat. Though people get to witness huge pandals during the ten-day festivals, the organisers have toned down the celebrations a bit to avoid crowding amid the pandemic.

However, Bollywood and television celebrities are ringing in the festival with much zest and zeal. Like every year Shilpa Shetty, Kareena Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan, Arjun Bijlani, Rithvik Dhanjani, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Divyanka Tripathi have brought the idols of Lord Ganesh to their homes. They have shared pictures of the Ganpati celebrations on social media.

Bollywood actor Shilpa shared two pictures on Instagram with her kids Viaan and Samisha. In the photos, the family is seen enjoying some time together amid Ganesh Chaturthi festivities. Sharing the photos, she wrote, “Om Gan Ganapatay Namo Namah! Shri Siddhivinayak Namo Namah! Ashta Vinayak Namo Namah! Ganapati Bappa Moraiya! ~Our Gannu Raja is back to visit us!.”

The celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi has often made it to the silver screen in several Bollywood movies. We also have many Hindi songs to suit the occasion like “Deva Shree Ganesha” (Agneepath), “Mourya Re” (Don), “Gajanana” (Bajirao Mastani), “Aala Re Aala Ganesha” (Daddy), “Sindoor Lal Chadayo” (Vaastav), and “Suno Ganpati Bappa Morya” (Judwaa 2), among others.

A post shared by SOPHIE (@sophiechoudry)

Fashionista Sophie Choudry chooses a vibrant yellow outfit to continue celebrating the Ganpati festival over the long weekend.

TV actor Rithvik Dhanjani promoted the idea of eco-friendly Ganpati as he created the idol of Lord Ganesha himself. He also shared his childhood memory of the festival as he said, "My fondest memory of Ganesh Chaturthi is from my childhood. When I was little, we used to keep Bappa at home for 11 days in Mandsaur, MP. It used to be a festival; from collecting the Chanda from different people so that we could buy a nice moorti, get prashad and make a jhaanki for Bappa. We didn’t have a lot of money so we would steal mud and sugar from the factory and used it to make a pull for the train in our jhaanki. I think those are the fond memories that I have of Ganesh Chaturthi."

He added, "To be able to live in the city of dreams in just the way I want, eat anything that I want, have friends around, people to talk to, and people who love me, these are the true blessings from Bappa."
