Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan visited Lalbaugcha Raja with daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai during Ganesh festival in Mumbai.

Unlike many stars, like Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan, the Bachchan family does not bring Ganpati idols home on Ganesh Chaturthi, but offers prayers at Lalbaugcha Raja every year.

Ganesh Chaturthi, which was celebrated on 17 September this year, marks the birth of Lord Ganesh.

The highlights of this auspicious 10-day-long festival are the first day when Ganpati is brought home and the last day of 'Visarjan' when the idol is immersed in river or sea.

However, several Bollywood celebs celebrated the festival installing Ganpati idols at their homes. But they immersed the idols the next day.

Meanwhile, Amitabh shared photos of him and Aishwarya at Lalbaugcha Raja on social networking sites. In the photos, apart from the Bachchan members, singer Shankar Mahadevan and tabla player Zakir Hussain were also spotted.
