This Ganapati there is going to be played a musical arti in the Bappa pandals in the voices of famous Bhojpuri singer and superstar Manoj Tiwari. He is accompanied by “Hichki” fame Marathi singer Swaprup Bhawlankar and Avadhut Gupte. This is for the first time that a Bhojpuri singer has joined Marathi singers for Ganesh Arti.
The song is in Hindi, Bhojpuri, Marathi and Sanskrit and the music for this Ganesh Arti has been scored by Swarup Bhawlankar himself. The lyrics are written by Roshni Bhalwankar. This is based on traditional Ganesh Arti and is very melodious. Manoj Tiwari was too happy while describing the moment when he was offered to sing the Arti which will be played all over Maharashtra. Swarup says it is a tribute to Bappa devotees and he is happy to conceive it.
