Shilpa Shetty and Vivek Oberoi were among the first few Bollywood actors to welcome Lord Ganesha into their homes. Oberoi who is basking in the success of 'PM Narendra Modi' biopic, was spotted with wife Priyanka doing the aarti. "Like every year, this year too I have an eco-friendly Bappa. We are celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi with no toxic paints, no lead paint. It's all-natural as it is good for nature and also for Lord Ganesha's dignity," said Vivek.

On the professional front, Shilpa Shetty is all set to make her Bollywood comeback with Nikamma after a hiatus of 13 years. The actress, who was last seen in Dishkiyaoon, will portray the character of Avni. The film also stars Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota actor Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia.

In an interview with IANS, Shilpa said: "I will start shooting for the film soon. I am reading up for the film and preparing in other ways, so it's all new for me. I am enjoying the process. I think this is the right time since it is all about content now. I really liked the script of the film. I feel Sabbir Khan who is the director of the film is presenting me differently so, I am really excited about it."

Nikamma is being produced by Sony Pictures in collaboration with Sabbir Khan Films and is slated to hit theatres next year. Director and screenwriter Sabbir has previously worked with Bollywood biggies including Kareena Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor, and Tiger Shroff.
