VIDEO: Riteish Deshmukh’s Rap Debut Will Make You Agree & Say ‘Thank God, Bappa Is Not Like Us’

Thank God, Bappa is just not like us..

That’s how Actor Riteish Deshmukh starts telling us about GanpatiBappa, in his debut as a singer in a new video. The video is a Mumbai Film Company and Star Pravah initiative. It is produced by Genelia Deshmukh and music is composed by Amar Magrulkar.

The lyrics by Kapil Sawant tickle us all through the song by comparing the Almighty with human beings. With satirical questions like what do materialistic and selfish humans do in different situations and what would Bappa do in similar situations, the song gives us some serious food for thought while also making us smile.

Here are some snippets from the eye-opening, entertaining song:


What would he say, had he been like us?
Seeing our Offerings,
“Only 21 modaks? What big deal sir?”
Would He have said that?

To a Devotee with un-fulfilled wishes,
“Oh. Ma’am you failed to stand in the queue of Wishes”
Would He Have Said that?


To a devotee from Andheri, visiting the Lord from Lalbaug..
“This falls under Andheri Jurisdiction
Please contact the Bappa from Andheri”
Would He have said that?


Would he have offered his blessings as packages?
Ganpati& Shankar ‘Blessings Combo’
Just Rs. 20,000

We placed him in every corner of our streets…
For a moment, how about placing him in our Hearts?

The fun video directed by Kapil Sawantand edited by Adele Pereira raises some serious questions at the end about the state of affairs on the day after the immersion.


A Day after the immersion is a sight so awful!
Millions of people who bowed at his feet
The feet are now seen lying somewhere
The hands that blessed all the living
Is badly broken and is somewhere lying..
The Bappa who brings us all together himself is now wrecked and scattered on the beach.

Let’s learn from Bappa and be kind, generous and treat everyone equally as an offering to Him on this Ganesh Chaturthi!
