Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, accompanied by his son AbRam and manager Pooja Dadlani, sought the blessings of Lalbaugcha Raja. Dressed in a simple white shirt, Shah Rukh Khan looked every bit the humble devotee as he joined the queue to pay his respects to Lord Ganesha. A priest marked his forehead with a traditional tilak, signifying the commencement of this sacred ritual. With coconuts and sweets in hand, Shah Rukh made his offerings to the deity while engaging in a heartfelt conversation with his young son, AbRam, who was by his side throughout. The actor folded his hands in prayer. The video is now going viral across several social media platforms.
Fans praised SRK for visiting the crowded pandal with minimum security. A fan wrote, “He is gentleman, itni bheed mein cool.”
This year, Shah Rukh Khan welcomed Lord Ganesha into his own residence, Mannat, with great pomp and joy on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Sharing a picture of the divine Ganesha idol on his Instagram, SRK extended his festive greetings to all his fans. His caption read, “Welcome home Ganpati Bappa Ji. Wishing you and your family a wonderful day honoring Lord Ganesha. May Lord Ganesha bless all of us with happiness, wisdom, good health, and lots of Modak to eat!!!”
Ganpati Mohotsav is extra special for SRK this year as his film is doing wonders at the box office. His previous release Pathaan broke several box office records and now his latest film Jawan is another massive blockbuster of his career.
