It’s Karva Chauth tomorrow, and a bunch of female actors are set to soak in the festival in style. Kareena Kapoor Khan, the begum of the Pataudi Palace, will fast for the longevity of hubby Saif Ali Khan’s life, and is excited to take part in the rituals. Bebo, who’s been busy promoting her upcoming film, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, has reportedly informed director Punit Malhotra that she’ll work for only 4 hours on October 22.

Veteran actor Hema Malini says: “I’ve fasted every year since I married Dharam ji (Dharmendra, actor), Once, I was performing at a Ramlila, and I broke the fast in Sita’s attire!” Actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra, too, says, “I will be shooting as well as fasting on Karva Chauth!”
Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been religiously keeping the fast ever since she tied the knot with Abhishek Bachchan in 2007. She’ll keep the fast with mother-in-law Jaya this year too.
However, some Bollywood bahus don’t celebrate the festival. When we asked Vidya Balan about her plan for the day, the actor, who married producer Siddharth Roy Kapur last year, said, “We don’t celebrate Karva Chauth.”
