Actress Sonali Bendre also shared her celebration and wrote with her image: "I have always believed that traditions are what you make of them... to me they are a bridge between the past, present and future. I respect where they came from but never hesitated to give it my own meaning. Karwa Chauth is one such festival… to me, it has always been a celebration of family and friends that are family. A day spent in rituals with the people you love. The fact that I get pampered by my husband is a bonus . It’s a celebration of togetherness and companionship, cementing the love we share with our husbands & the bond between our family and friends ."

Bendre shared an interesting fact with her fans that she was wearing her wedding lehenga after 19 years.

" Fun fact… I’m wearing my wedding lehenga from 19 years ago by @manishmalhotra05 and have paired it with this beautiful mangalsutra from @bulgari. Then and now, the worlds can meet, if you just approach it with love," she said.

What is Karwa Chauth?

Karwa Chauth is a festival celebrated by Hindu women from the Indian Subcontinent on the fourth day after Purnima (a full moon) in the month of Kartika.

Like many Hindu festivals, Karwa Chauth is based on the lunisolar calendar which accounts for all astronomical positions, especially positions of the moon which is used as a marker to calculate important dates.

The festival falls on the fourth day after the full moon, in the Hindu lunisolar calendar month of Kartik.

On Karwa Chauth, married women, especially in North India, observe fast from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands.
