Filmmaker and choreographer, Farah Khan is a well-known name in Tinseltown. She proved her exceptional talent with some of her notable works, including Happy New Year, Om Shanti Om, and Main Hoon Na among others. On the personal front, Farah Khan is married to Shirish Kunder and is blessed with triplets, Diva, Anya, and Czar. However, lately, she got mercilessly trolled for her viral video as she visited Lalbaugcha Raja.
On September 26, 2023, Farah Khan visited Mumbai's famous Ganpati pandal, Lalbaugcha Raja, to seek blessings and offer her prayers. She was dressed in a comfy black-hued outfit paired with a cream-hued side bag. In one of the videos, Farah was seen entering the pandal to offer prayers to Bappa and her friends were holding her hands and guiding her. She looked exhausted as she was walking with the help of others amid the crowd.
Soon after the video surfaced on Instagram, netizens left no stone unturned to troll Farah Khan. While some users mentioned that she looked unwell, others also trolled her for her walk and claimed that she was drunk. Reacting to the video, one user penned, "Mujhe laga yeh behosh ho gaye raste pe and people are helping". Meanwhile, another user said, "Darshan ke liye leke jare hai ya emergency ke liye hospital."

However, Farah Khan took to her Instagram handle and shared a video of the Ganpati idol at Lalbaug. Alongside the video, she penned a long note and clarified that she was incapacitated due to the crowd at the pandal. The 58-year-old filmmaker further thanked the security, volunteers and police for handling the crowd so well and wrote:
"Had the most amazing darshan of #lalbaughcharaja .. right at his feet.. despite whatever ul see in videos of me looking incapacitated due to crowds I just want to say it was all worth it. Thank you to the security, the volunteers , n the police who handle such crowds daily with such care n understanding.. n thank you to my dearest @sonu_sood for taking me with him.

A few days back, taking to her IG handle, Farah Khan dropped a picture from the low-key Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at RajKummar Rao and Patralekhaa's residence. In the photo, she was seen posing with Huma Qureshi and Patralekhaa with folded hands. Farah looked stunning in a printed co-ord set and styled it with sober earrings, a delicate neckpiece, and a pair of stylish slippers.
As soon as Farah Khan shared the pictures, netizens were quick to point out that she should not have kept her slippers on in front of Ganesh Ji. Reacting to the post, a user commented "Plz remove ur slippers in front of ganesha". However, Farah gave a sassy response to the same and clearly stated that the picture was not taken in front of Ganpati Bappa. Farah's reply to the troll could be read as:
"we were outside the house thank you very much."
