Indians are celebrating the birthday of Lord Ganesha (Ganesh Chaturthi) by bringing the idol of Bappa at home. Today, September 1 marks the day 1 of the celebration and Bollywood celebrities took to their social media to extend wishes to their fans. Arjun Kapoor took to Twitter to wish his fans alongside a video. Pointing to a portrait nailed on a wall, Arjun said, “This is my aunt and sister at our studio celebrating Ganpati.” “Ganpati was someone close to my mother a lot! She believed in it and we have continued the legacy. I feel nice that we can continue something for my mother’s sake and I know how many people love Ganpati,” he added.

“So here’s wishing Ganpati Bappa Mori Moriya. But keep it eco-friendly. You have seen the environment and circumstances so celebrate it very intelligently,” he ended the clip.

Calling Ganesh Chaturthi one of her favourite festivals, Sonali Bendre wrote, “Ganesh Chaturthi is one of my favourite festivals and I really missed celebrating it at home last year… Was part of the Aarti via FaceTime! I’m so glad to be back this year, healthier and stronger, celebrating with my family.”

Anil Kapoor wished his fans happiness, health and success on the occasion. “Shree Vakratunda mahakaya Suryakoti Samaprabha, Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryeshu Sarvada. May Lord Ganesha bless you with all the health, happiness & success. Happy #GaneshChaturthi!” he tweeted.

Ajay Devgn and wife Kajol too wished their fans a ‘Happy Ganesh Chaturthi’ alongside a beautiful picture of Ganesh.
