B-town celebs soaked in divinity of Ganesh festival

Ganesh Chaturthi has always been a grand affair for the Bollywood stars. Actors like Salman Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty have always done something heartwarming for Lord Ganesh on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Recently, actor Sanjay Dutt was spotted with his wife Maanyata, at a Ganpati pandal in Lokhandwala.
Salman Khan, who is a devout follower of Lord Ganesh, has always celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi at his residence-Galaxy in Bandra with his family. But this year, the family will celebrate the joyous festival at Salman’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma’s residence in Bandra, reportedly. Salman, who is busy in the shooting of his upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai in Abu Dhabi, will celebrate the festival with family in Mumbai.
Shilpa Shetty, alongwith her husband Raj Kundra and son, Viaan, bring Ganesha’s idol home every year on Ganesh Chaturthi. Shilpa always celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi in a very different way. Last year, the Apne actress welcomed an environment friendly Ganesha idol at home. She also goes for the Ganpati idol immersion herself, after the 10 day festival is over.
Following the lead are the Kapoors, who celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi every year at RK studios. Rishi Kapoor, along with wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir Kapoor, perform the Ganesh aarti at their home.
Actor Anil Kapoor also doesn’t leave a chance to sing Ganpati Bappa Moreya and celebrate the festival jovially each year, with his children Harshvardhan and Sonam Kapoor.
Actors like Tushar Kapoor, Govinda, Madhuri Dixit and Vivek Oberoi also express their excitement about the festival by bringing Lord Ganesha home.
Nana Patekar is well known for getting home the Dagdu Sheth Ganpati every year and he himself does the honour of immersing the Ganpati idol.
