Mumbai: Actor Riteish Deshmukh created an eco-friendly idol of Lord Ganpati on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi and dedicated it to the farmers of the country.

Continuing with the annual tradition, the 38-year-old actor, made a unique planter pot statue of the tusked god, right from scratch.

 

Deshmukh, who is currently in the US, took to Twitter where he posted almost two-minute-long video of him making the idol.

"Celebrating #GaneshChaturthi in America, made an idol, I humbly dedicate it to our farmers. #ECO #Planter #Visarjan #SonOfAFarmer #Bappa," the 'Bank Chor' actor captioned the clip.

In the video, the subtitles read that "the turban on the head of Lord Ganesh represents every farmer in India. As a son of a farmer, I dedicate this idol to them."

 

Deshmukh's father was former Maharashtra CM Vilasrao Deshmukh, who passed away in 2012.

The actor also thanked his wife actor, Genelia Deshmukh being a source of inspiration.

"I wanna thank Baiko @geneliad for inspiring me to do this and also for shooting this video. God bless you all with happiness prosperity and love," he wrote.
