Looking dapper in an embroidered off-white jacket and pyjama-kurta, Kapoor arrived in style in a bajra on the ghat.

He greeted the people gathered at the ghat with a namaskar and said, "I wish this celebration becomes more grand with each passing year. Iss Dev Deepawali ke shubh avsar par Ganga ma se meri prarthana hai ki aap sab ko hamesha sukhi rakhein," he said as the air reverberated with the sound of Har Har Gange!!

Dev Deepawali is celebrated a few days after Diwali in which thousands of diyas are lit on the steps of the ghats in Varanasi.
