Due to the lockdown this year, this festival will be celebrated in the homes along with the family. However, this has not diminished the spirit of TV actors at all.

These artists have created environmentally friendly eco-friendly sculptures, in addition to celebrating this celebration in the virtual world together with family and friends. These artists have also prepared virtual darshan and aarti of Ganapati at home. Let’s see what these artists say.
Anjani i.e. Sneha Wagh, mother of ‘Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram’ said, Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great pomp at our house, we are a very big family who come together on this occasion. Keeping all the rituals in mind, the eldest member of the house brings Bappa home. Because this time we will not be able to go to each other’s house for this festival, so we will connect with the same enthusiasm and joy to see Bappa virtually. There are artists in our family itself; We make a statue of Bappa at home from clay.
Rohitash Gaur, who plays Manmohan Tiwari of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai, said, “Every year we wait for the Ganpati festival to come and start planning its celebrations, decorations and special dishes a month in advance. We always bring eco-friendly Ganpati Bappa at home for five days. This year we are not bringing Bappa home and will not invite guests either. However, we will join Bappa’s virtual darshan and aarti to seek his blessings. This Ganapati, I wish everyone happiness and prosperity.
Anguri Bhabhi ie Shubhangi Atre of ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain’ said, I, my husband and my daughter, together make eco-friendly Ganpati with soil, rice and flowers, and we put it in the pond near our farmhouse. Immerse in I encourage everyone to use materials that do not pollute the environment. This year also we are going to make eco-friendly Bappa statue, the only change this year will be that there will not be many guests in our list and this festival will be limited to family members only.
“Our house has a small temple in a place with a Ganesh idol,” said Happu Singh i.e. Yogesh Tripathi, the vice-chancellor of ‘Hapu ki Ooltan-Paltan’. Every year we decorate the temple with flowers and offer modak and karanji as a bhog and ladoos of Motichur, which are distributed as prasad. This festival also becomes an opportunity for everyone to come together as we visit the relatives and friends who bring Bappa to their home. However, this year we will be able to see only virtual philosophy of Bappa.
Guddu of ‘Gudiya Hamari Pe Pa Hari’ i.e. Karam Rajpal said, Ganesh Chaturthi is such a festival that I wait for the whole year. Going to Ganesh Pandal every year with friends and family is a ritual that I follow every year. This year, I plan to celebrate the virtual aarti of relatives and friends’ homes from my home and participate in the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. I always like to enjoy hot steamed modak during this festival. But my plan this year is to try to make them myself. I wish the Almighty removes us from all the sorrows that the world is going through right now and waiting for his arrival next year brings another big smile on our faces.
From ‘Happu ki Ooltan Paltan’ Dabang Rajesh i.e. Kamna Pathak said, Ganesh Chaturthi brings peace and positivity in everyone’s life. I still remember that when I came to Mumbai to audition for the role of Rajesh in Happu’s Ooltan Paltan I came to seek blessings in the very famous Lalbagh Cha Raja. Soon after I reached there, I received the good news that I had been considered for the role. I have always believed in Bappa and he has helped me turn my dreams into reality. Every year I am invited by friends to celebrate Bappa’s birthday, but this year I will traditionally remember making modak and delicious dishes prepared at his home. Although some of my friends have organized Virtual Aarti, So I can take part in it. To keep the spirit of this festival awake, I have planned to make Karanji and Kheer at home by myself as Prasad.
Swati i.e. Tanvi Dogra of ‘Santoshi Maa Sunaayen Vrat Kathain’ said, Since I am busy with my daily routine, meeting friends has become almost impossible. Visiting friends’ home for Ganapati darshan becomes a good opportunity to meet them. Apart from this, I like to go to Pandal no matter how long I have to go for it. However, this year I will miss this grand ceremony very much. I have received many invitations from my friends to do virtual darshan which I now eagerly await.
