The festive season has begun and a cheer of Ganpati Bappa Morya has gone up on social media, led by several Bollywood celebrities. Ganesh Chaturthi, the 11-day long festival, began on Monday and stars such as Salman Khan, Sonali Bendre, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Vivek Oberoi and several others wished their fans peace and prosperity on social media. Sonali Bendre shared a picture of herself with a Ganesha idol and wrote: "Ganesh Chaturthi is one of my favourite festivals and I really missed celebrating it at home last year... Was part of the Aarti via FaceTime! I'm so glad to be back this year, healthier and stronger, celebrating with my family."

She added: "I truly believe if there's faith, it reflects more on the inside... In the dialogue between you and your God... So don't lose that essence. Once again, we've taken the route of bringing an eco-friendly Ganesha and we'll also immerse the Lord in our home. May this Ganesh Chaturthi bring health, happiness and new beginnings to everyone and may we all have the strength to overcome the obstacles that come our way." Sonali Bendre was diagnosed with cancer last year. She had undergone treatment for cancer in New York last year.

Going simple with his wishes, Anil Kapoor tweeted: "Shree vakratunda mahakaya suryakoti samaprabha nirvighnam kuru me deva sarva-kaaryeshu sarvada. May Lord Ganesha bless you with all the health, happiness and success. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!"
