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.”
