Karwa Chauth holds importance in the life of every married woman as it is the day to celebrate and pray for the long life of her husband. From sargi to karwa badalna, from dressing up to waiting for chaand, every married woman waits for this day the whole year. For them, it is their way to express their love for their pati, and in recent times, some patis also decide to fast for their better-halves. We have grown up watching Karwa Chauth celebrations in movies and TV shows, wondering what would be the feel of the festival and thus, it becomes extra special for every newly-married woman. They are even more excited to observe their first fast as it is a new experience for them and it is their way to say ‘I love you’ to their partner.
Here are 9 celebrities, who had gotten married in the year 2020 and will be observing their first Karwa Chauth for their pati parmeshwar
Niti Taylor had tied the knot with her fiancé, Parikshit Bawa on August 13, 2020, in an intimate ceremony at a Gurudwara in Gurgaon, which was attended only by their parents and immediate family members. For her wedding, Niti Taylor had opted for a gorgeous lehenga by Payal Keyal and had looked ethereal. While her wedding announcement had come as surprise for her fans, we still drool over her wedding looks and post-wedding glow. We are waiting for Niti’s first Karwa Chauth as we know she will nail her look and we will be in-treat for some modern Karwa Chauth goals.
After all the speculations and public considering her wedding to be a publicity gimmick, it was on October 24, 2020, when Neha Kakkar had tied the knot with the man of her dreams, Rohanpreet Singh in a Gurudwara wedding in Delhi. Her three bridal looks had made her fans drool and her happiness on getting married with the love of her life was clearly visible on her face. With her classic choices for her wedding functions, we believe Neha is going to nail her first Karwa Chauth look as well.
After 2 days of wedding festivities, on October 30, 2020, Kajal Aggarwal had finally tied the knot with her main man, Gautam Kitchlu. In the first wedding picture of Kajal and Gautam, the couple had looked made for each other. While Kajal had opted for a beautiful red lehenga with golden embroidery, her hubby, Gautam had looked dapper in a white sherwani with an onion-pink doshala. Kajal had kept the look for her other functions simple and comfortable. We wonder how she is going to prepare for her first Karwa Chauth.
Miheeka Bajaj had tied the knot with South superstar, Rana Daggubati on August 8, 2020, and had become each other's forever in a memorable lockdown wedding. The wedding ceremony had commenced in Hyderabad and it was a close-knit affair with only family and close friends in attendance. Even though the wedding was an intimate affair, their love for each other is world known! This will be Miheeka’s first Karwa Chauth and keeping her wedding looks in mind, we are waiting for her Karwa Chauth look desperately!
Natasa Stankovic and Hardik Pandya have been surprising their fans since the beginning of the year 2020. First, it was the news of their engagement, and later it was the announcement of their wedding and pregnancy. It was on May 31, 2020, when Hardik Pandya had taken to his Instagram handle and had posted some beautiful pictures with his pregnant wife, Natasa flaunting her baby bump. And on July 30, 2020, Hardik and Natasa had welcomed their little bundle of joy, whom they have named Agastya Pandya. It will be Natasa’s first Karwa Chauth with her hubby, Hardik and baby, Agastya. As Hardik is in Dubai for the on-going season of IPL, we are excited to see how she’ll be celebrating her first Karwa Chauth.
The D-day had finally come for Poonam Pandey and her long-time beau, Sam Bombay on September 1, 2020, as the lovebirds had tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony. After a messy honeymoon tale and police complaints, the two had reconciled and we are expecting Poonam Pandey to observe her first Karwa Chauth fast for her dearest hubby.
Diya Aur Baati Hum fame, Prachi Tehlan had tied the knot with her businessman boyfriend, Rohit Saroha in the month of August 2020. Prachi had shared a dreamy picture of her phera ceremony with her husband, Rohit, announcing that the couple had gotten married on August 7, 2020. We had loved Prachi and Rohit’s contrasting yet complementing wedding outfits and as it is going to be Prachi’s first Karwa Chauth, we will be waiting for her look eagerly!
After dating for 9 years and postponing their wedding twice, Tujh Sang Preet Lagai Sajna fame co-stars, Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma had tied the knot in the first quarter 2020. The two had planned to become each other’s forever and had tied the knot as per Bengali rituals. Later, on October 9, 2020, Puja and Kunal had hopped on the crazy journey of parenthood as they had welcomed a baby boy into their lives. Puja will be witnessing her first Karwa Chauth post-wedding and delivering her baby.
After a sudden wedding announcement, television actress, Sangeita Chauhaan had gotten married to Manish Raisinghan during the peak of lockdown. Keeping their mehendi and sangeet functions virtual, over a video call, the couple had taken chaar laava (four pheras) at a Gurudwara in Andheri, Mumbai. Manish and Sangeita had twinned in shades of pink for their wedding looks, their masked faces had given a glimpse of the new normal at the weddings. We hope the couple twin on their first Karwa Chauth as well!
The festival of Karwa Chauth makes us believe in the power of love as not everybody has the willpower to fast for the entire day and wait for the chaand to break their fast. It is hard to stay sane the entire day without food and water, but it is love that conquers the struggle. The festival is a great, pure and sacred way to express a husband and wife’s love for each other and we simply cannot wait to watch these gorgeous newly married women, performing their first Karwa Chauth rituals!
