Zee TV’s popular show Kumkum Bhagya was in for a surprise when some special guests arrived and made it their home. Bollywood actors Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri appeared on the show to celebrate the ongoing Ganesh Festival 2016! This was, of course, a promotional activity for their forthcoming film Banjo. Riteish Deshmukh plays a singer and banjo player in the film and the movie is set in the heart of Maharashtra in Mumbai. Obviously, a Ganeshotsav and a Ganpati song are pivotal to the plot of Banjo, and the Bappa song by Vishal Dadlani in the movie has already caught on with the masses. ALSO SEE: Salman Khan Ganesh Darshan: Little Ahil Sharma, celebs gather at Bollywood superstar’s house to celebrate Ganesh Festival 2016
