By Urvi Parikh, Glamsham Editorial

Abhishek Bachchan is abroad for the shoot of Umesh Shukla's next (which was earlier titled MERE APNE), thus missing out on important festival of Karwa Chauth. While the Bachchans are known to celebrate the occasion lavishly, this time junior Bachchan had to miss the celebration.

Doting bahu Aishwarya Rai Bachchan celebrated her Karwa Chauth for the first time away from husband Abhishek Bachchan, due to latter's shooting schedule. But the distance didn't matter to the star couple as they both connected each other through video conferencing.

While Amitabh Bachchan and wife Jaya Bachchan were snapped celebrating Karwa Chauth on their terrace, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was snapped alone as her better half was virtually present with her. Both father and son, Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan posted on the micro-blogging site about celebrating the festival away from home.

"Abhishek out of country on shoot...so face of husband seen through Skype, for Karvachauth by Aishwarya... what times we live in !!," posted the socially active Big B. Abhishek too got on to the micro-blogging site and wrote, "My 1st Karwa Chawth away from the Mrs. Thank god for Facetime!"

Well, technology has indeed got the globe closer!
