Karwa Chauth is considered as one of the most romantic festivals which is celebrated across the country. It is the day when a woman keeps a fast whole day long for the well-being and long life of their husband. On this day, the woman only eats or drinks anything after witnessing the moon. This year will mark the Karwa Chauth on October 17, 2019. Just like other festivals, Bollywood has beautifully expressed the importance of this festival by showcasing the couples traveling distance to see each other and husbands feeding their wives with their hands, at the break of dusk. But what Bollywood portrays is much different from reality.

Bollywood shows wife smiling as she looks at her husband. Proving her love for him, a woman keeps herself thirsty and hungry for the whole day. But well, the reality is something different. She is actually imagining all the delicious food she is going to get later. Suppressed smile probably means bloated stomach or the ‘if you do not feed me, I will eat you up’ look.
An Indian woman breaks her Karwa Chauth fast by looking at the moon and praying. Hindi movies showcase the sentimental side of a woman. But probably, the bloated stomach and weak body of the woman know the other side. Imagine a woman witnessing a moon and thinking if it could turn into a cheese burst burger or buttery paranthas. Here's a perfect song for the occasion for you to enjoy!
In Bollywood films, a husband is as much excited to see the moon as his wife. But the reality is something else. A husband is not elated for his wife but he is relieved to get rid of his hungry wife’s cranky mood swings. Now, you can imagine his happiness soaring heights.
