Marriage is the beginning of a blissful happily-ever-after. The first year post-marriage is all about wearing pink tinted glasses and finding love in everything you do. The honeymoon phase of any marriage is certainly the most cherished phase. The newly-wedded couple desperately waits for every festival, so that they can celebrate it with love and enthusiasm with each other. The couples come across so many occasions to celebrate their togetherness. While for some its Holi and Diwali, for many there are their regional festivals that make it even more special for them. Imagine the feeling of celebrating a festival for the first time with your partner, that you have been celebrating alone. Special, right?

The Mere Angne Mein fame, Charu Asopa Sen celebrated her first Gangaur festival with her darling husband, Rajeev Sen on March 27, 2020.

In an exclusive chat with ETimes, Charu talked about how she managed to make the festival memorable despite the coronavirus outbreak. The actress said, "I had nothing to decorate as I couldn't step out of the house for buying flowers and other stuff due to the 21 days lockdown. So instead of grass I used jowar to do the rituals. Luckily, gangaur and other necessary stuff my mom had already sent to me in advance from Bikaner before the coronavirus scare began. I tried to make whatever I could do in this lockdown situation. As sweets were not available I decided to make prasad at home." (Recommended Read: Dipika Kakkar Cooks 'Daal Bati Churma' For Hubby, Shoaib Ibrahim And Family On Jummah Amid Lockdown)
She also talked about the importance of the festival, and said, "The festival of Gangaur is celebrated in Rajasthan and it is celebrated by married and unmarried women. They worship Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva to get a good husband and family after marriage. As this was my first Gangaur I got ready and wore a beautiful red saree. As there was no elders in the house present nor I could step out to ask for help, I decided to take assistance on phone and did everything on my own. Rajeev has also been a great help."
Earlier in an interview with the Bombay Times, the 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. 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.” (You May Also Read: Karan Johar's Son, Yash's Response To Coronavirus Is Filled With Innocence And Melted Our Hearts)
