#StarrySpecial: Television stars talks about the festival of Joy- Ganesh Chaturthi

The festival of Ganpati is here and our favourite telly actors tell us how they celebrate these days and what Ganpati means to them!

Sharad Malhotra: 

I have been keeping Ganpati at my place since the last 7 years. I started bringing Bappa to my home since I came to Mumbai. I do the decorations with the help of family and friends. My parents come to Mumbai every year for this occasion. I feel blessed to get Bappa every year. He is the guiding force in my life. I love to eat and distribute sweets as well.

Jasmin Bhasin:

During Ganpati, I go to Lal Baug for darshan and visit my friends who keep Ganpati at home. I don’t get Ganpati at home because of my work timings. I feel I won’t be able to take proper care of Bappa. He is my guide, my guardian angel. I felt his presence the day I landed the first time in Mumbai. It was the last day of Ganpati and I got blessings from him the moment I stepped in the city.

Arjun Bijlani:

I have been getting Ganpati for more than 25 years now. It’ s a tradition now and my son Ayaan also enjoys the festivities. I love to meet people and I love visiting others on Ganesh Chaturthi. It is the biggest festival in Mumbai. Be it at set or at home, the environment is full of happiness during this period. I feel great and blessed. Bappa has taught me that it is nice to be important but it is more important to be nice.

Vahbbiz Dorabajee:

I do not get Ganpati at home though it’s a wish and hopefully someday I would. On the first day of the festival, I visit everybody’s home and that’s my most favorite thing to do. I meet my friends and see different kinds of Ganpati idols. Bappa’s role is very big in my life because he has helped me so much.

Anand Goradiya:

This is the third year that I am keeping Ganpati at my place. I have an emotional connect with Bappa as my wife and I had decided that we will get Ganpati when we buy our own home. Besides that, Ganeshji has been my favorite God since childhood. I talk to him like he is a human being. The fervor of the festival is visible all over India.

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to everyone!
