It’s that time of the year, where all the loving wives religiously fast for the long lives of their husbands on a day called Karwa Chauth. If you are a Bollywood buff, you will know that this ritual has been a very filmy element in Bollywood films like Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham. While that was for the film, turns out reality isn’t as different for many of the Bollywood ladies. Actresses like Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and even Anushka Sharma have proven that they indeed are Desi women at heart, who dote on their husbands and celebrate the festival with great zest.
While we wait for all their pictures from this year, let’s recap on some of the most loved Karwa Chaut pictures of Bollywood celebs, shall we?
Held at Anil Kapoor‘s house every year, his wife Sunita Kapoor is considered to be the hostess with the mostest, and we have seen proof of that before. Everyone from Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Maheep Kapoor and the late Sridevi were a part of these parties which included a lot of songs, dance and great food post breaking their fast.

Anushka Sharma celebrated her first Karwa Chauth after her marriage to cricketer Virat Kohli and posted the sweetest pictures on her social media. We can’t wait to see her this year!
Shilpa Shetty is one of the most fun persons when it comes to such celebrations, and makes sure to post the best pictures on Instagram. She celebrated Karwa Chauth in Sri Lanka last year, but not without following the rituals and posting adorable pictures with her husband, Raj Kundra.

Had to put this picture out.. just notice the light in the shadow of the sieve looking like the moon 😅 considering we couldn’t see the moon in Srilanka till 9.30 pm so WE broke our fast ( yes he fasts too 😇) with a pic of the moon seen in Mumbai sent by a friend .😅 My Cookie @rajkundra9 you are my sun,my moon and my universe.. Thankyou for travelling with me 😘🤗Tum aye toh aya mujhe yaad gali mein aaj Chaand nikla .💖 Happy Karva chauth instafam.. #karvachauth #moon #srilankadiaries #hubbylove #love #life
Aishwarya Rai is one doting wife to Abhishek Bachchan and never fails to prove that she is all things a perfect bahu is! Here is a very old picture from one of her Karwa Chauth celebrations.
Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover‘s monkey love is one of the most fun ones. She celebrated Karwa Chauth with her husband and posted this cute picture on Instagram.
Not only the ladies, but the men also come to the forefront when it comes to praying for their spouse’s long life and well-being. Ayushmann Khurrana fasted for his wife, Tahira Kashyap last year as she was diagnosed with breast cancer and wasn’t in a position to fast. How really sweet is that gesture, right? Proves that it is not only the wives who need to play an active part in this ritual.

This year will see some of our Bollywood beauties celebrate their first Karwachaut and we are too excited to see their looks and all the pictures they’ll post. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta, are all the newly-wed couples that might be celebrating their love and marriage today.
Happy Karwa Chauth everyone!
