Karwa Chauth 2023: Bollywood Actresses Who Celebrate Love & Togetherness, Skipping the Traditional Fast

In India, Karwa Chauth stands out as one of the most vibrant and cherished festivals, celebrated with great fervor. It’s a day observed by married women who fast from sunrise to moonrise, praying for the longevity and well-being of their husbands. Interestingly, this tradition isn’t confined to just women; some men also join in to show their love and support for their wives. As we celebrate Karwa Chauth today, it’s important to recognize that the festival is not only about tradition but also about the personal choices of couples.

In the glitzy world of Bollywood, several leading ladies have embraced this tradition and celebrate Karwa Chauth with immense enthusiasm. Shilpa Shetty, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, among many others, have shared their festive moments with fans.

Here are some Bollywood celebs who opt not to partake in the tradition of Karwa Chauth:

Deepika Padukone

The celebrated actress, who married Ranveer Singh on 14th November, 2018, reportedly chooses not to celebrate Karwa Chauth.

Rhea Kapoor

Rhea tied the knot with Karan Boolani on 14th August, 2021. She has openly expressed her stance, stating, “Respectfully please don’t reach out to me for Karva Chauth gifting or collabs. It’s not something Karan or I believe in.” She further explained, “We respect other couples who partake and can even enjoy the festivities while they do. It’s just not for me.”

Ratna Pathak Shah

The veteran actress who is married to Naseeruddin Shah spoke candidly about her views on Karwa Chauth, expressing concern about the resurgence of conservative practices. She stated, “Our society is becoming extremely conservative. We are becoming superstitious… So, anything that keeps me away from widowhood. Really? In the 21st Century? We are talking like this? Educated women are doing this?”

Twinkle Khanna

Known for her wit and frankness, Twinkle has made it clear that she doesn’t believe in the tradition of Karwa Chauth. In a tweet, she humorously pointed out, “These days by 40, u could be on the way to your 2nd marriage so what’s the point of fasting-don’t need the men to last that long anymore.” She also humorously commented on longevity in another tweet: “Scientists studying the longest-living mammals, bowhead whales, found that for a long life, what is needed is a slow metabolism, not wives who fast.”

Sonam Kapoor

The outspoken actress revealed that her husband, Anand Ahuja, is not a fan of Karwa Chauth fasting. Nonetheless, they believe that festivals and traditions are an excellent reason for family and friends to come together. She also expressed respect for women who celebrate the festival.

Kareena Kapoor Khan

Wife of Saif Ali Khan and B-town’s OG Diva, Kareena embraces the festival but doesn’t observe the fast. She humorously explained her stance: “I am not going to fast. I am a Kapoor… I can’t live without food, am not going to fast. And I can’t live without food. I would celebrate it by eating, working, by promoting my film.”

These Bollywood leading ladies make their choices known while respecting those who follow the tradition of Karwa Chauth. As we celebrate the festival, let’s embrace diversity and individual choices that make our world colorful and unique.
