Jazbaa star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will she be in attendance at ZEE’s Ganesh festival in US, to interact with fans and also to also seek blessings!

ZEE TV, along with 1947 media is bringing the biggest Ganesh celebration to America, spanning 5 days, with over 150,000 people in attendance from all over North America.

This will be the second year for the spectacular festival. In its first year, the event was a huge success, attracting nearly 97,000 people.

The celebration this year will begin on September 17th, which is the day of Ganesh Chaturthi (Sthapana), and will take place until September 21st, which is the day of visarjan. This is North America’s very first and biggest Sarvajanik (Community) Ganesh Utsav.

Highlights of the celebration will include all day performances by contestants from DID North America, DID Super Moms, SRGMP winners, and appearances by some of the biggest TV stars.

Sameer Targe, GM of Asia TV USA says, “Ganesh Utsav is a celebration that connects our community. Most importantly, we want for all Indians, especially 2nd and 3rd generation Indian Americans to experience what a Lal Bagh ka Raja feels like. We want them to experience how the Ganpati festival is celebrated in India, which is what we are bringing here, right in America1”

Piraan Erachshaw, President of 1947 Production and Entertainment says, “In partnership with ZEE TV, we are proud to successfully bring one of India’s favorite festivals to life for the very first time in the USA. The entire South Asian community will be able to experience the event in person instead of just viewing it digitally or on TV.”

Held on 10 acres of open ground in Edison, New Jersey, also known as Little India, last year’s event attracted one of the most diverse crowds, with 25% Gujarati, 25% Telugu, 25% Punjabi, 10% Marathi, 5% Tamil, 5% Bengali, and 5% of various other backgrounds. Apart from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut, attendees travelled all the way from Canada, Washington DC, Virginia, Illinois, and even New England States.
