TellyBuzz got in touch with the actor to know more about his fascination towards the festival and immersing Lord Ganesha in a unique way.
"I remember I had gone to Pune once at my relatives' place and they were hesitant to call me in their house as they had the items of elephant all over. I have great fondness for elephants and in childhood I use to literally collect all elephant statues from everywhere and keep it in my room, the actor says.
What special and different has Raqesh planned for his Ganpati this year, he avers, "I have made my Ganpati in a peppermints' color i.e. blue and silver and have made the decoration like Himalaya. So this time the theme for him is natural like 'Ganpati staying at Himalaya'."
Talking about the way he prefers to do the Visarjan Raqesh says, "I have a water tub on the terrace, there I do the visarjan of my Ganpati. The immersed Idol it gets dissolved and turns into soil, I bury it in the nature. I believe in Eco-friendly Ganpati and so do I maintain it the same every year."
It's nice to know your fascination Raqesh. Keep it up!
