A look at Bollywood films celebrating the north Indian festival

Karva Chauth, a special day for Indian women to dress up, shop, celebrate and enjoy. And Bollywood practices this festival and ardently goes full 360 degree when showcasing it on the silver screen. Be it in films or real life, stars have celebrated this fest in full grandeur. Right from Kajol, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Juhi Chawla, Sushmita Sen, Amrita Rao to Kareena Kapoor have kept the day-long fast to pray for the long life of their onscreen or real-life husbands and boyfriends. Their bright and colourful dresses accessorised with heavy jewellery and makeup have added to the festivities of Karva Chauth. While the fast is ideally kept by women, men sometimes make it special when they shower their better halves with gifts and sometimes fast all day as well. Now, isn’t that cute? The movies of Yash Raj and Sooraj Barjatya have often picturised Karva Chauth in true style and opulence. Here’s capturing some of the best moments of this festival on screen.
