Each year, on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, thousands of worshippers across the nation welcome Lord Ganesh into their homes and lives. The 10-day long festival, which is observed with a lot of fervour and enthusiasm, celebrates the birth and homecoming of Lord Ganesha.

Among the many worshippers who observe the special occasion with a lot of devotion and vigour are several Bollywood celebrities, who too celebrate Bappa's homecoming like a grand affair.

Stars including Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Rishi Kapoor, Govinda, Anil Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty among others have for the past several years celebrated the festival with dedication and commitment. And while the celebrities observe the 10-day long festival like a grand event, they also bid adieu to the Lord with the promise of welcoming him home again next year.

This year too, several celebrities welcomed the Lord home and took to social media to wish everyone a Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. Take a look.

Urvashi Rautela took to Instagram to wish her fans and followers on the auspicious occasion. She caption the image, "Happy #GaneshChaturthi to all of us. May the Lord Vighna Vinayaka removes all obstacles and showers you with bounties. Happy Ganesha! May good health, peace, love & prosperity be bestowed on all of us. #GanapatiBappaMoriya (sic)."
