Karva Chauth is a major hindu festival celebrated by married Hindu women in Northen India. It is observed during the Krishna Paksha Chaturthi in the month of Kartik as per the Hindu calendar.
Karva Chauth is also much adored festival by our Bollywood. And what not to love? The gorgeous brides dressing up their best,putting heena onto their hands,keep the fast for the day, only to munch over thali of sweetmeats and savouries as Sargi.
From legendary Dilwale Dulhaniya le jayenge to Kabhi Khusi Kabhi Gam the grandeur and emotions of this age old popular festival of married women had pushed entire theater erupt into thunderous applause and whistles. It is an integral part of half of Bollywood family movies even today. But how is it when Bollywood actresses observe Karva Chauth for their own husbands. These Bollywood Divas not only promote indian traditions inspite of being highly successful women but also inspire Karva Chauth fashion. Here are a few pictures of Bollywood Celebrities celebrating Karva Chauth.

The typical punjabi couple Sanjay Kapoor and wife Mahdeep Sandhu make sure to celebrate Karva Chauth together every year.
Bipasha Basu looked every bit of a Punjabi bride during her first Karva Chauth. This year would be her second Karva Chauth. She chose a phulkari embroidered patiyala salwar suit especially for the occasion.
Chunky Pandey along with wife Bhavna Pandey look so adorable together. The smiles says it all. We love the easy breezy yellow suit with floral skirt she’s adorning.
The Bahurani of Bollywood Aishwarya Rai is truly mysterious. Look how typical of an Indian UP bride she looks in her seedha palla yellow sari and suddenly she ‘ll change to her Ellie Saab gowns and turn to be someone really sexy. Does she has a magic wand?
Some people find Karva Chuath sexist and I find this view absurd. It’s an age old tradition celebrating the bond between husband and wife. If you value your partner and pray for his or her well being in your own way I don’t think there is any harm to it. Nobody forces it on anybody,I have seen many men keeping the fasts for their wives too. It’s just a day indulging into PDA and spending a little more time with that special someone on your life. So ladies happy fasting and wish you all a very joyous Karva Chauth
