“Amitabh Bachchan had made a significant contribution on the occasion of Ganesh Jayanti, which is considered Lord Ganesha’s birthday, in February. It was done quietly,” says a source. When probed about the nature of the ‘significant’ contribution, it was revealed that the Bachchan family donated a solar power device that generates electricity and powers the Sanctum of the temple.
It is common knowledge that the Bachchans are devotees of Lord Ganesha and the frequently visit the Siddhi Vinayak Temple. The family has always remained silent as to the nature of contributions they make to the temple but now, it has been revealed that whatever they make, are of great importance to the temple.
