The actress feels Ganpati Bappa is very lucky for her as she shares, “The importance of Ganpati Bappa is very significant in my life. I feel Bappa is very lucky for me. I have observed that every year when he comes into my life, he protects me and some or the other big troubles of my life go away.”
About this year in particular, Vahbiz says she will be making sure she visits her friends’ homes to seek blessings from Bappa, “The first two or three days of Ganpati are very important. I love to visit my friends, as I don’t keep Ganpati but I make sure that I visit all my close friends.”

Vahbiz also encourages people to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in an eco-friendly way, “This festival should be celebrated as eco-friendly. The worst part is after Bappa goes, the way the idols are broken, the east they are immersed in the sea polluting our entire sea and our city. I want people to take this seriously and try to take eco-friendly Ganpati, I have seen a lot of my friends do it very responsibly. They do the Visarjan in a bucket and that is very nice.”
While it is easy to get so involved in the festival and forget to be responsible, it is great to see Vahbiz Dorabjee taking the time to understand its significance and urging others to celebrate responsibly!
