Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations are in full swing and Bollywood celebrities too are partaking in this auspicious occasion. Actor Shraddha Kapoor gave us a glimpse of her celebrations and her enthusiasm is clearly showing through. Just like all devotees, Shraddha made the effort to dress up in a traditional attire and is also gorging on the festive-special delicacies. Ganesh Chaturthi is a 10-day-long festival, which is observed with full fervour in the state of Maharashtra. Idols of Lord Ganesh are brought home, ideally for 10 days, and worshipped every day before being immersed in water bodies at the end of the festival.
Shraddha Kapoor has also welcomed ‘Ganpati’ at her home and surrounded the idol with flower decorations along with a bhog offering of modaks. She posted a set of pictures of herself holding the Lord Ganesha idol, dressed in a traditional red and green saree. In one of the pictures, she is all smiles while digging into a plate of modaks. She captioned the post with – “Ganpati Bappa Morya. My favourite 10 days of the year.”

Shraddha Kapoor also indulged in a traditional Ganesh Chaturthi-special feast on a banana leaf. Neatly plated on the leaf were poori and white rice paired with dal, green chutney and a sabzi. Also spotted is a small piece of corn cob splayed with red chutney. Then, of course, there was modak and a small bowl of sweet seviyan.
This was all in a day – the first day of the festival. Come day 2 and Shraddha is still basking in the glory of the festive vibe with mawa modak. Take a look at what she posted:
