Karwa Chauth- a popular festival in North India, made even more popular by Bollywood! Innumerous Bollywood films have highlighted the importance and beauty of this festival, kept for one’s suhaag. Sacrificing food and water for almost one whole day to pray for the long life of her hubby takes a lot of efforts (we know that most of you must already be nodding to this statement!). The first Karwa Chauth is extremely special for a woman and who can vouch for this better, other than the newly-married Charu Asopa Sen.

Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sen had gotten married as per dual wedding customs- a Rajasthani and a Bengali wedding in Goa. Many women, since their very childhood, fantasise about their wedding day and Charu Asopa too had one as she was always fascinated by white weddings. And how truly she lived upto her dream at her own do! The duo had an intimate engagement ceremony in Goa wherein they had looked ethereal in a white dress as they had put rings in each other’s fingers, cut the cake with a sword and popped the champagne. Here’s a picture of the same:
Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sen always celebrate their sweet little ‘firsts’ with each other and when it comes to something big, like their first Karwa Chauth today, they ought to make it large! Hence, both Charu and Rajeev took to Instagram and posted dreamy pictures, from what looked like a village-themed background, looking beautiful with each other. While Rajeev, wishing his wife, Charu wrote, “Mera chand mujhe aaya hai nazar... #happykarvachauth My jaan @asopacharu”, his doting wife posting pictures from a similar background wrote, “Gali main Aaj chand nikla... #happykarwachauth.” Beneath Charu’s post, Rajeev commented, “Raja missed you, My beautiful wife”, which symbolised that he was away from his wife for a while. Here are the snaps:
It was on August 2019 when Rajeev Sen and Charu Asopa came back from the ‘big’ European honeymoon. They had shared a vast array of pictures with one another in various parts of Europe that speak volumes of love. With the mister captioning his pictures as “In love with Switzerland #honeymoon #romanticweather #coupleinparadise”, “My queen of diamonds forever” and the missus penning, “Jannat” and “With my king enjoying a beautiful sunny day in Interlaken”, we totally drooled over their steamy romance!

Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sen had registered their marriage on June 09, 2019. One of the guests present at their court wedding had informed the Bombay Times, "Since, white is the colour of purity and red signifies love, Rajeev sported a white kurta-pyjama, while Charu wore a red saree for the wedding. After the ceremony wrapped up, Rajeev’s mother gifted Charu a set of diamond earrings. The newly-weds then had gone to Mount Mary Church and Siddhivinayak Temple to seek blessings."
Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sen surely look like a match made straight out of heaven. In an interview with the Bombay Times, the Baal Veer actress had revealed if it was love at first sight for them. She had shared, "After our first meeting, we had decided to catch up again over coffee, but I left for my hometown, Bikaner. I was on a much-needed break after my show, Jiji Maa, ended. In fact, I hadn’t decided when to return. However, as luck would have it, I was offered KarnSangini and had to report on the set the very next day.”
Charu Asopa Sen had further continued, “I texted Rajeev from the set and told him that we could meet for coffee. I had assumed that the meeting would end in half an hour. However, we went on talking for hours until I told him that I had to leave as I had an early call time the next day. We started chatting, spending time together and the rest, as they say, is history. I don’t know if I can call it love at first sight, but it looks like that.” (Also Read: Neha Dhupia Hasn't Decided Whether To Fast Or Not On Karwa Chauth, Says Hubby Angad Confused Her)
