MUMBAI: We had reported earlier that Salman Khan will be celebrating the Ganpati festival at his Panvel farmhouse. The reason being, that his ‘Galaxy’ Apartment in Bandra is under renovation. (Read STORY).
But looks like there is another venue change on the cards as the actor’s Ganpati takes a u-turn back to Bandra. The celebrations will now happen at Salman Khan’s sister Alvira and her actor-producer-director husband Atul Agnihotri’s residence at Bandra.
The sudden venue change is because Salman Khan and his family fear that many locals will end up dropping to meet Salman Khan and his Ganesha.
Salim Khan, Salman’s father also says, “We have friends and relatives coming over for Ganpati darshan. Panvel is quite far away for people to drop by.”
Salman Khan hasn’t had a release this year and his upcoming films are ‘Azaad’ (‘Mental’ / ‘Jai Ho’ earlier), and Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut ‘Kick’. The actor currently on a small break will surely enjoy spending time with his family.
This is the 12th year that the Khan’s are welcoming abode Lord Ganesha and it is Alvira and Arpita who are playing hosts for the one-and-half days of the festival.
Salman Khan and his good friends, Sangeeta Bijlani, Preity Zinta, Sonakshi Sinha and many others have visited the Ganpati to seek their blessings.
With Shah Rukh Khan inviting Salman Khan for Eid and an Iftar Party in Dubai, we wonder if Salman Khan has invited Shah Rukh Khan back too for Ganpati celebrations.
While Shah Rukh Khan is shooting for ‘Happy New Year’ in Dubai, it will be quite a surprise if the actor pays a visit to Salman Khan ahead of the festivities considering SRK himself celebrates Ganesh utsav with huge fanfare.
For now let the festivities at Salman Khan’s place begin. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!
