Sonam Kapoor and husband Anand Ahuja celebrated their first Karwa Chauth in a novel way.

When Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja hashtagged their marriage ‘everyday phenomenal’, we knew it was a bond with a difference. Now, hearing Anand’s take on how can you celebrate your relationship without essentially fasting the entire day on Karwa Chauth has come as another affirmation. Sonam and Anand had a hilarious exchange on social media about how their first Karwa Chauth after their wedding went and why.

Sonam and Anand observed their first Karwa Chauth fast – a Hindu festival where married women fast the entire day for their husbands – on Saturday. They also shared a photo of their henna-decorated hands on Friday. However, when it came to fasting, Anand had a different take.

“I hope to live my best life with you always my love.. and to being the most progressive, compassionate and gentle man I know. Happy KC and thank you for bullying me into not keeping it in the most hilarious way possible,” Sonam wrote on Instagram.

Anand revealed his Karwa Chauth rule book and tweeted, “I didn’t bully you! I just said that I’m fasting if you’re fasting, and if we don’t fast we can just walk around and workout and enjoy the day together! Does that sound like bullying? That sounds like intelligence to me.”

Sonam replied to Anand’s comment with a hilarious takedown, “what about ‘Baby let’s intermittent fast everyday together that’s proven to increase lifespan’,” later adding a home truth, “also you’re unbearably cranky when hungry.”

It seems Sonam knew what she was talking about when she opened up to Vogue about the qualities she most appreciates in Anand, “He’s non-judgemental—with everybody. Very open-minded and progressive. I’m a little conservative and close-minded about a few things, and he’s taught me to see the other side, to look at things with a lot more compassion and care, to be a little more pragmatic and practical, as I can be very emotional and quick to judge sometimes, which is not nice.”

Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor’s wife Sunita hosted a Karwa Chauth party at their residence like every year where actors Neelam Kothari, Raveena Tandon and Kaykasshan Patel were present among others.

Remembering sister-in-law Sridevi, Sunita shared a photo from their Karwa Chauth celebrations and wrote, “Miss you Sri”. The actor passed away earlier this year in Dubai.
