On Monday evening, the family chose a less glamorous and more prayerful way to conduct their Ganpati visarjan.
While we have seen several other Bollywood stars call on a band and a special truck to ferry the idol to the sea, Rishi and his family held a small pooja in their building’s premises.
Rishi was among the first few to pray in front of the idol. A few friends later continued with their prayers before handing over the aarti thali to Neetu and her daughter.
Grandma Neetu held her adorable grandchild Samara close as they prayed in front of the idol.
Visibly absent from these pictures was actor Ranbir Kapoor, who is currently in London shooting for Karan Johar's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.
Although we have seen the Kapoors in a few films this year, none so far have gone on to become a box office hit.
Both Ranbir and father Rishi have had films that didn't do as well as expected. Ranbir's 'Bombay Velvet' and Rishi's 'All Is Well' failed to hit the mark, but both father and son hope to redeem themselves with their upcoming flicks.
While Ranbir has Imtiaz Ali's 'Tamasha' to look forward to, Rishi will be see in the family drama 'Kapoor and Sons'.
After conducting an aarti, the family got into their car and drove off in the rain to immerse the idol.
