Ganesh Chaturthi, a ten-day festival that starts on the fourth day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar month Bhadrapada, started on August 31 this year. The festive period is also known as Vinayak Chaturthi or Vinayak Chavithi.
It is celebrated with much fanfare in Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra with lakhs of devotees converging onto pandals to seek blessing from Lord Ganesh. With 2022 bringing back Ganesh Chaturthi festivities following two-year-long COVID-induced hiatus, preparations are in full swing across the nation.
For the festivities, people bring Lord Ganesh idols to their homes, observe fasts, prepare mouth-watering delicacies, and visit pandals during this festival. This auspicious ten-day festival starts with Chaturthi Tithi and ends on Anantha Chaturdashi.
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to return to the silver screen after four years with `Pathaan`, which is set to hit the theatres on January 25, 2023. The film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. He also has `Dunki` with Taapsee Pannu and `Jawan` with Nayanthara in his kitty.
