Rajpal Yadav Takes Team Curly Tales To The Temple He Visits Every Ganpati Festival

No matter how old we become, we always find comfort in revisiting the places where we had spent our younger days. The same goes for actor Rajpal Yadav. When he had first come to Mumbai in 1997, he was staying in Vanrai Colony, Goregaon with his flatmates. In a Tere Gully Mein interview with Curly Tales, the actor said that he also used to cook for himself and his roommates during those days. Now after spending 25 years in Mumbai, he is a big name in the acting industry. But Rajpal has not forgotten his roots. He still visits the Ganpati temple at Vanrai Colony on every Ganpati festival and Navratri. The temple is close to his heart and he even took team Curly Tales to the place.

He also knelt in front of Lord Ganesha and Lord Shiva at the temple. He said that a stage is built at Vanrai Colony during the Ganpati festival. “I get invitations to visit places all across the country, but I never get an invitation here. But if I am available, I come here to meet everyone, from the young to the old. After getting down at Mumbai for the first time at Borivali, I had the first meal at Vanrai Colony. Four of us had decided then that we would stay together in one room at the colony for a year.”, said the actor.
