Mumbai, Sep.1 (ANI): The famous ‘Lal Bagh Ka Raja’, the venue where thousands of devotees are converging everyday for the ongoing Ganesha Chaturthi festival, on Tuesday saw many Bollywood personalities turning up to seek blessings of the Lord.
The 10-day festivities draw a large number of devotees to Puja Pandals or makeshift temples especially set up during this festival here.
Film actor Govinda, Director David Dhawan, actress Sambhavna Seth, Producer Vashu Bhagnani and his son Jackie Bhagnani offered prayers to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha.
“Mangal Murti (God of luck, Lord Ganesha) has the power to accomplish all your works. I have come here because ‘Lal Bagh Ka Raja’ blesses us and takes care of us,” said Govinda.
Govinda and David Dhawan have teamed up again after two years for their upcoming comedy movie ‘Do Knot’ Disturb’.
Sambhavna Seth who was also present at the tent said that she has a lot of faith in Lord Ganesha which made her visit the ‘Lal Bagh Ka Raja’.
“During Big Boss (reality TV show) I didn’t get an opportunity to visit here. Two years back, I had come here and since then I hold a lot of faith with Lal Bagh Ka Raja. It was very important for me to pay a visit and hence I have come to offer prayers,” said Sambhavna.
In the past few days, many members of the Bollywood fraternity have been paying visit to the Lal Bagh Ka Raja.
Thousands of devotees everyday throng the venue to have a glimpse of the 23-feet high Lord Ganapati idol at Lal Bagh Ka Raja pandal and also offer special prayers as a part of the ongoing festival.
The festival marks the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha, signifying good omen and prosperity. (ANI)
