Shweta became Bollywood’s youngest singing sensation at the age of 4 with Mani Ratnam’s Anjali and there was no looking back. She bagged a Filmfare award, Oscar and became AR Rahman’s lead world tour vocalist. She is India’s very own music prodigy, Golmaal launched its Guru Ganesh Collection, and roped in this cool young singer as the face of the brand.
Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the grandest festivals of India. This is the second time I am bringing Ganesha home so it will be double the fun! He helps us to overcome obstacles in our life and I believe he is the cutest form of deity in the Hindu religion. I have always been fascinated by Lord Ganesha. I have also contributed to the soundtrack for the film My Friend Ganesha. Here are my top 5 picks that are sure to get you in the festive spirit.
1) Aarti from Vaastav
I love the aarti in this movie and listen to it during the festival.
2) Ganesh Smaranam with Shankar Mahadevan
A sanskrit devotional album with Shankar Mahadevan for Ganesha which is played across in all temples and even people’s homes during the festival.
3) Ganaraaj Rangi Naachto
This is a classic Ganesh Chaturthi tune enjoyed by one and all.
4) Gajanana Shree
This is one of Lata Mangeshkar’s most popular marathi songs and it is played at various mandals.
