Owing to the ongoing pandemic, it's not possible to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in a lavish way this year, so many celebrities kept it a low-key affair and celebrated the festival at their home. Several Bollywood stars like Ananya Panday, Shraddha Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty, Sonali Bendre, Kajol and Sara Ali Khan welcomed Ganpati Bappa into their homes and dressed up in their finest ethnic wear.
The celebs gave a sneak-peek of their celebrations on their social media and we loved seeing their fun-filled moments. Let's take a look at who wore what.
Ananya Pandey wrote, 'welcome home Ganpati Bappa Morya ' as she shared a series of pictures posing in front of a Ganpati idol at her home. Ananya looked pretty as sunshine clad in a bright yellow-coloured salwar suit with floral embroidery on it. The matching yellow dupatta had beautiful white lace detailing on the border. She kept it an absolute fuss-free no make-up look and wore beautiful silver oxidised earrings as an accessory. She finished the look with a small middle-parted bun and a tika on her forehead.
Shraddha Kapoor looked gorgeous as ever in an orange-coloured salwar-kameez with a matching dupatta, as she celebrated Ganpati at home with her family. She captioned the photographs on her Instagram as, 'Ganpati Bappa Morya!
@padminikolhapure @tejukolhapure ,mommy, @priyaankksharma @shazamorani @zanaibhosle and fam. Missing the rest @siddhanthkapoor @shaktikapoor'. She kept her tresses open with a middle-parting and opted for a pair of elegant gold jhumkas as an accessory. With this look, Sharddha has proved that simplicity is the best accessory!
Shilpa Shetty posted picture-perfect family pictures on her Instagram with son Viaan and daughter Samisha while celebrating the festival at home as a yearly tradition. This is the eleventh year that the actress is celebrating the festival at home and for the occasion, all three of them dressed up in similar attires from the fashion label Pink City by Sarika. Shilpa wore a rani pink saaj kaftan set and twinned with Samisha's pink outfit. Viaan, on the other hand, wore a violet-coloured similar patterned kurta and white pajama for the festivities.
Sara Ali Khan looked classy in an elegant white ethnic suit while celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi at home with her mother Amrita Singh. Sara's high-necked kurta with golden embroidery was paired with palazzo pants and a matching dupatta with a golden border. The Simmba actress kept her middle-parted hair open and accessorised the look with gold jhumkas, bracelet and a white bindi.
Sonali Bendre is ageing in reverse. The beautiful actress posted a series of pictures of herself celebrating Ganpati at home and captioned it as, 'The mood while welcoming Bappa home is more meditative this year but it’s always a special feeling .' She looked elegant as ever in a light pink saree paired with a white half-sleeved blouse. Her friends Tahira Kashyap, Dia Mirza, Neelam Kothari Soni and Sussanne Khan left her heart emojis on the comments.
Kajol was a picture of elegance clad in a beautiful traditional yellow saree with a broad golden border, paired with a contrasting red blouse. She posted a picture on her Instagram and captioned it as, 'Welcoming the 'Vighnaharta' with immense joy. #HappyGaneshChaturthi. .' Kajol accessorised the look with a heavy gold choker, gold bangles, matching statement earrings and a ring. She completed her gorgeous ethnic look with a bun replete with a gajra, a small red bindi on her forehead and smokey-eyes. Kajol's look can easily work as an inspiration for you if you want to go all the way to dress up in your festive best this Ganesh Chaturthi.
