The 10-day long Ganesh Chaturthi festival celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesh began today. Though it is celebrated throughout the country, the state of Maharashtra especially observes it with great vigour and gaiety. The city is known for organising some of the most famous Ganesh mandals.

Several celebrities greeted the nation on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Known to celebrate the festival with a lot of fervour, Shilpa Shetty was spotted gearing up for it a day before Ganesh Chaturthi.

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. I truly believe if there’s faith, it reflects more on the the dialogue between you and your God... so don't lose that essence. Once again, we’ve taken the route of bringing an eco-friendly Ganesha & we’ll also immerse the Lord in our home 🙏🏻 May this Ganesh Chaturthi bring health, happiness and new beginnings to everyone, and may we all have the strength to overcome the obstacles that come our way. सर्वांना गणेश चतुर्थीच्या शुभेच्छा. 😄 गणपती बाप्पा मोरया
