On Monday, Shiv Thakare made his way to the Ganpati Pandal to welcome Lord Ganesha for the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. The Khatron Ke Khiladi 13 contestant selected a deity idol that deeply resonated with him. He also took a photo of the idol he had chosen to bring home and shared it with the paparazzi.
“I was roaming for the past 3 days to find the murti I feel connected to. Even in Amravati I used to do the same. The idols are the same but it is about Bappa’s eyes that I often search for when I bring him home for 10 days. Bappa has made me capable enough to not worry about the expensive murti and I am taking home such a lovely murti,” he said, as quoted by ETimes.
