Here’s How Bollywood Welcomed Bappa Into Their Homes And Hearts On Ganesh Chaturthi!

Can you believe that it’s already Day 2 of Bappa’s trip to our humble abodes? The 10-day festival of Ganesh Chaturthi always brings Mumbai to life, and it is incredible to see the vibrancy and vigour of Ganpati celebrations! Adding their own glitz and glamour touch to the festival, of course, are our Bollywood celebs!

This year too, the who’s who of high society and B-Town got together to revere the elephant god of prosperity and we’ve got all the pictures here!

Let’s start with a loud cheer of Ganpati Bappa Morya, shall we?

Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra welcomed Bappa amidst much fanfare to their home.

They had several of their industry friends drop by for darshan!

Shilpa even posted a lovely video of their family doing Bappa’s aarti!

As she undergoes treatment in the States, Sonali Bendra couldn’t be there for the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations back home. But she shared a picture of husband Goldie Behl and son Ranveer seeking Bappa’s blessings!

Bhumi Pednekar had quite the fun-filled Ganesh Chaturthi celebration at her home!

Check out the gorgeous floral decor!

Another actress who sought Bappa’s blessings was Nushrat Bharucha, who posted this cute boomerang with Bappa!

She was then spotted visiting Ajay Kapoor’s home for darshan as well!

Nushrat’s Sonu co-star Kartik Aaryan is shooting for a movie with Kriti Sanon in Mathura, and the two shared this adorable picture with Ganpati Bappa!

Govinda, along with his family, too hosted Ganpati Bappa at his home! Here’s a video of them doing the puja!

Queen of the K-ingdom of TV, Ekta Kapoor turned cameraperson for her nephew Lakshya, brother Tusshar and papa Jitendra, as they sought the Almighty’s blessings at their home.

As expected, Antilia was decked up to the nines for Bappa’s arrival. Singer Harshdeep Kaur posted this adorable photo of herself, posing with this floral Bappa idol at the venue!

Speaking of stunning, take a load of this one! Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan also swung by the Antilia!

The ethereal Rekhaji was there too, seen here with director Madhur Bhandarkar.

Anna and fam, y’all! Suniel Shetty came with wife Mana, daughter Athiya and son Aahaan!

Isn’t that a picture perfect family?

Speaking of perfection, Aamir Khan and his Dangal-creating on-screen daughters Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra were there too.

So were these pretty ladies Kiara Advani and Yami Gautam, looking gorgeous as ever!

Amitabh Bachchan also arrived to pray at Bappa’s feet along with daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda.

The lovely Hema Malini and daughter Ahana were also spotted.

Hardik Pandya, looking totally the bomb and almost unrecognisable, was also present.

The God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar too dropped by to seek God’s blessings, with wife Anjali and son Arjun in tow.

Salman Khan too visited Antilia for darshan.

He, of course, had another celebration to attend back home, at sister Arpita Khan Sharma and brother-in-law Ayush Sharma’s home.

Katrina Kaif arrives with sister Isabel Kaif at Arpita’s home for the puja.

Also spotted, Dia Mirza with hubby Sahil Sangha.

Kat shared this video of the aarti, the stunning decor and the awe-inspiring Bappa idol!

Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at RK Studios have always been iconic over the years. However, this year marks the last time that this would happen, as RK Studios has been put up for sale.

Seen here welcoming Bappa for the last time at the studio are brothers Randhir and Rajiv Kapoor.

The most surprising devotee though who sought the elephant god’s blessing was Australian cricket Brett Lee!

It is indeed a beautiful feeling to see Ganesh Chaturthi bring people, not just celebrities but also us common folk, together, irrespective of religion, caste, economic strata and any other differences. Perfectly true to it’s essence!
