On Wednesday, Rishi Kapoor, along with actress-wife Neetu, will take off on an 11-day cruise across Europe that kicks off from Rome. The 64-year-old actor revealed to Mirror that they will be sailing around the Greek Islands before their friends join them in London.

The couple’s vacation starts on August 9 and winds up on August 21 so they can be back at their Bandra residence in time for Ganpati celebrations. Rishi and Neetu, who are devout Ganesha devotees, have been celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi for decades with elaborate rituals panning over five days. “We were planning a longer vacation but both Neetu and I wanted to be back at least a couple of days before the festival starts on August 25 to make all the necessary arrangements. We also have a Ganesh puja at RK Studios, which my family hosts. I don’t want to miss that either,” informed Rishi.
