Bappa, the real star
A spectacular line-up has been planned for Ganesh Utsav on Star Plus
With Ganesh Chaturthi around the corner, StarPlus brings to its viewers a spectacular show called Adbhut Ganesh Utsav starting today. The maverick Nana Patekar will be seen on the show. The actor is a firm believer of Lord Ganesh and gets home the replica of Dagdusheth Ganapati idol. He will be seen doing the Ganesh aarti on the show, followed by recitation of a shlok which is written by him exclusively for Adbhut Ganesh Utsav.
Urmila Matondkar, who is known for her nimble moves, and has appeared on the small screen as judge on a couple of shows in the past, will perform on this show.
Apart from Nana and Urmila, Sachin Pilgaonkar will be seen in the role of a narrator. He will talk about Shivaji Maharaj. As a mark of respect, he abstained from consuming non-vegetarian food during the shoot. Kunal Jai Singh will be doing a special act on Shivaji Maharaj.
One of the most interesting acts will be presented by Raqesh Bapat, who will be making a Ganapati idol from clay, before the audience. He believes in indulging in eco friendly practices and makes a clay idol at home every year which he installs for puja too.
Dancer and actor Shantanu Maheshwari will be doing a special performance on the song Ganapati Bappa Moraya. Daily soap queen Divyanka Tripathi will attempt Kathak for the first time for her fusion act of ‘Kathak-lavani’. She will dance on the songs Deewani Mastani and Navrai Majhi.
Ahead of their upcoming movie Sui Dhaaga’s release, Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma will be seeking Bappa’s blessings. Daily soap actor Nakul Mehta, Sanjeeda Sheikh and dancer Shakti Mohan are some of the other stars to perform on the show. ST
