Actor Riteish Deshmukh is enjoying Ganesh Chaturthi and on this occasion, he created an eco-friendly idol of the lord and dedicated it to the farmers of the country. The actor, who is currently in US, shared a video on social media in which he can be seen making the idol. Along with Riteish, many Bollywood celebs have welcomed Lord Ganpati to their homes and are enjoying the festive season.
Deshmukh, who is currently in the US, took to Twitter where he posted almost two-minute-long video of him making the idol.
"Celebrating #GaneshChaturthi in America, made an idol, I humbly dedicate it to our farmers. #ECO #Planter #Visarjan #SonOfAFarmer #Bappa," the "Bank Chor" actor captioned the clip.
In the video, the subtitles read that "the turban on the head of Lord Ganesh represents every farmer in India. As a son of a farmer, I dedicate this idol to them."
Deshmukh's father was former Maharashtra CM Vilasrao Deshmukh, who passed away in 2012.
The actor also thanked his wife actor, Genelia Deshmukh being a source of inspiration.
"I wanna thank Baiko @geneliad for inspiring me to dothis and also for shooting this video. God bless you all with happiness prosperity and love," he wrote.
