{image-bahchcan familywe_28052008.jpg}Mumbai, May 27: The Bachchan's visited Siddhivinayak temple at Prabhadevi in Central Mumbai early today to offer prayers to Lord Ganesh. Amitabh Bachchan, his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya left their home 'Jalsa' in Juhu, a western suburb, at 0130 hrs and walked to the temple barefoot.

They reached there around 0430 hrs to participate in the 'Kakad' arti (before sunrise), sources said. A serpentine queue of devotees, who had come from near and distant areas of the city, had to wait for over an hour when the Bachchans were offering prayers to the deity, they said.
According to sources, Mr Bachchan, sporting a grey track suit, drove from his bungalow 'Prateeksha' to his other residence 'Jalsa' where he was joined by Abhishek and his wife Aishwarya to walk towards the temple. Amitabh's wife Jaya joined them directly at the temple, the sources added.
