Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, along with his family members, visited the Siddhivinayak temple in Prabhadevi early on Tuesday morning to offer prayers, sources said.

Bachchan along with son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya started walking today from their residence 'Jalsa' in suburban Mumbai at 0200 hrs towards Prabhadevi in central Mumbai, they said.

They reached Siddhivinayak temple and participated in the 'Kakad' arti (before sunrise).

The serpentine queue of devotees, who come from all over Mumbai and nearby areas, was stopped for over an hour when the Bachchans were offering prayers, sources added.

Every Tuesday, devotees visit the temple in large numbers to offer prayers and some even walk several miles from their homes to the temple to reach in time for the Kakad arti as tuesday is considered "Lord Ganesha's day".

According to sources, Bachchan, sporting a grey track suit, drove from his bungalow 'Prateeksha' to his other residence 'Jalsa' where he was later joined by Abhishek and Aishwarya to walk towards the temple.

Bachchan's wife Jaya joined them at the temple.
