Our very own Bollywood seems to be in love with the romantic festival of Karwa Chauth. And why not! After all, Bollywood, the Indian film industry, and love and romance have a special connection. Plus, Karwa Chauth is all about dressing up to the hilt in gorgeous Indian ethnic outfits like heavy red silk sarees, dressy Anarkali suits, and even wedding lehengas, reliving lovey-dovey moments from your wedding memories. Women celebrating their first Karwa Chauth after their marriage also wear their Bridal Lehenga Choli or Reception Saree on this day. The glamorous dressing is inherent to Bollywood, and the way our celeb trendsetters have been endorsing timeless ethnic treads is highly appreciable!
A traditional festival for married and committed women celebrated by Punjabis and North Indians, Karva Chauth is a strict food-and-water fasting ritual for the longevity of their spouse. Over the years, the regional festival has become a nation-wide celebration, and the credit for such popularity significantly goes to famous box-office films like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, and Baghban, plus – and many Hindi soap operas which never seem to forget to celebrate this day with fervor and tonnes of emotional drama.
Well, Karwa Chauth is a special day for women (and men), and it has a cultural and religious significance. Many Indian men also observe Karwa Chauth for their wives. So, all in all, our dear celebs have a valid reason to genuinely heart this festival – not only in their reel lives but also in their real lives. Like every year, the Karva Chauth 2020 celebrations in B-town had a sartorial red wave, and we’ve been awed with these beauties!
