The practice of Hindi films showing ‘Karwa Chauth’ scenes might have got obsolete of late, but that doesn't mean that Bollywood celebrities have stopped celebrating the custom. The ritual of a wife fasting for her husband for his well-being and ‘long life’ and looking at him through a sieve after watching the moon through it, ends with him breaking her fast. And one of the couples, who got married earlier this year, is also gearing up to celebrate the custom.
Sonam K Ahuja and Anand Ahuja will be celebrating their first ‘Karwa Chauth’ together. While we have to wait till the night to see them during the main aspect of the ceremony, if they participate in it or if pictures surface on social media, but till then we at least know how they started preparing for the day. Sonam and Anand applied Mehendi (henna) on to their hands on the occasion. The latter shared on Instagram stories a picture of the actor applying Mehendi to her palm, and later the former shared a snap of how it looked after completion. Sonam’s palm bore initials of the couple's initials ‘AS’ along with a heart design, while her husband also had the symbol of love on the back of his hand.
Today, Sonam’s ‘Delhi 6’ and 'Players' co-star Abhishek had asked all the ‘dutiful husbands’ to join their wives in fasting like he was doing for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. So we are keen to know if Anand will be one of them too. We know how much Anand loves Sonam, right from seeing their affection-filled social media posts before their marriage to even adding the actor’s initial to his name after the wedding. Last year, Sonam’s house had hosted several stars like late Sridevi, Raveena Tandon, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, among others on the occasion of Karwa Chauth.
The couple had got married in May in what was called the ‘wedding of the year’ till then. It’d be interesting to note if that tag stays intact, with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s marriage confirmed for November and Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ expected to happen in December.
