Karva Chauth Celebrations in Bollywood

The occasion of keeping arduous fasts for the longevity of your husband, Karwa Chauth is here with all its pomp and grand style. No other festival celebrates the special bond shared by a husband and wife the way Karwa Chauth does. With preparations going in spectacular fashion all over the country, let`s see what`s cooking in the grand canyon of Bollywood and what our celeb wives are planning this year. With numerous additions in the circle of Karwa Chauth Puja, catch more on whether the contemporary husbands are planning to surprise their lovely wives by observing fast like Abhishek Bachchan did for Aishwarya Rai in the year 2010. Numerous gossips are doing the rounds in the entertainment sector; let us sneak a peek into this festive celebration.

We all are well aware of the deep connection between Bollywood and Karwa Chauth, and thanks to romantic portrayals in innumerable movies, Karwa Chauth as a festival is very much in vogue. From DDLJ to Baghban, the portrayal as well as the significance of this occasion is well-established through cinema. It is reminiscent of the "suhagan" power of how a woman can become Savitri and get her husband back from the inferno. Times and traditions have undergone a great shift today, yet the relevance of this festivity has not taken a trivial turn. It is relevant even today. Bollywood wives are ahead in this challenge of observing this exceptional fast for their spouses in spite of their hectic schedule and have made this occasion much more fashionable than what it used to be.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty, Twinkle Khanna, Raveena Tandon, Kajol, Sridevi and many others have been following this ritual religiously for years now. This year the newly wedded battalion has joined them in following this tradition. Kareena Kapoor Khan has taken a break from her film schedule to celebrate her second Karva Chauth after marriage with hubby Saif Ali Khan. However, she has been keeping this fast for the past three years and is eager to participate in the rituals post wedding. She is joined by actress Genelia Deshmukh and Esha Deol who celebrated their first anniversary recently. The marriage of the "ooh lala queen", Vidya Balan has kept all eyes eagerly waiting for her first Karwa Chauth celebration.

The legendary actresses Hema Malini and Jaya Bachchan have been very active in celebrating and encouraging this practice for a long time now. Karwa Chauth parties and get-togethers of all the filmy celebs will be of great interest for the fans and the paparazzi. We would definitely like to know what designer-wears these beauties are going to don on this special occasion. As mentioned, time has changed the mode of celebration with an addition of extra glamour and has promoted the observance of this festive occasion in almost every part of the country. Despite its current scintillating appeal, the festival signifies the deep love of Indian women for their husband`s well-being. Earlier this festivity was restricted to Northern India, but now our multicultural nation is actively participating in this celebration along with the Bollywood heartthrobs.

The popularity of movies like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and the depiction of unmarried women observing this special vrat for their lovers has become a rage among young lovers. Going with this assertion, the moment this thought clicks in our mind, the curiosity to know about the hot shot link ups and probable couples occupies our major attention. Will Deepika Padukone fast for Ranvir Singh (when he has just recuperated from Dengue)? What about Katrina and Ranbir? This Karwa Chauth will bring its own set of Bollywood masala with the disclosure of events related to these much anticipated couples. Let us wait and watch out for all the dazzling divas dressed up and bejeweled in the spirit of Karwa Chauth!
