It’s abundantly clear with the loud music, processions on the road and mundups that it is the festive season of Ganesh Charturthi. Bollywood stars love to adorn their best indian wear and head to see their favourite Ganesh idol. This also means utter chaos at Lalbaugh Che Raja when mega stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Bipasha Basu decide to visit.
Bipasha looked striking in a crimson, gold and ink blue ensemble. I liked that she never leaves the house without her cat eye make up. Even though it’s a conservative event, she still manages to bring in a little sass. Spotted along with her was singer/songwriter Sonu Nigam.
Shilpa Shetty and husband Raj Kundra as usual visited the Chinchpokli Ganesh to do the Ganpati Darshan. Choosing a slightly lighter shade of red, with gold border and keeping accessories to a minimum, Shilpa looked aptly dressed for the occasion. (But Is it me or is Shilpa not looking like her usual happy self?) Raj like most men during this season choose to wear a simple white cotton kurta with shirt collar to keep it slightly modern.
Still embracing the Ganesh Charturthi spirit even though she wasn’t heading to a mandup or darshan, Eesha Kpoikkar was spotted wearing a red salwar kameez to a mall. Eesha was never really that chubby, but she looks like she’s dropped a whole lot of pounds in these pics. I don’t like that’s she soo matchy-matchy. The Dior bag matches the colour of the salwar kameez and the white shoes match the embroidery, it’s all a bit too OTT.
