Dutt breaks the cocunut, an important ritual in Hindu tradition. Not just Dutt, several other actors have also welcomed Lord Ganesha and have performed the Visarjan ceremony.
Sanjay Dutt immersed the Ganesh idol at Juhu Beach. The actor has showcased his devotion to Lord Ganesha by even singing a Ganesh aarti in his comeback film 'Bhoomi.'
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan visited the GSB Seva Mandal to seek blessings from Lord Ganesha. She was accompanied by her daughter Aaradhya as a good crowd turned out at the venue.
Aishwarya interacts with the priests at the venue. The actress' mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan was also spotted at a Ganesh mandal, but Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan have not been spotted anywhere yet.
Sachin Tendulkar, his wife Anjali and daughter Sara were also spotted at the same venue to seek blessings from Lord Ganesha. While his son Arjun was conspicuous by his absence, the family looked beautiful together dressed in traditional wear.
Sachin happily poses for selfies with fans at the venue. While the cricketer has retired, he has been a mentor with the IPL team Mumbai Indians and also a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament.
