Aye Kash Dekhu Main Aaj Ki Raat… Chand Aur Piya Dono Ek Saath… Sajan Ki Lambi Umar Ke Liye… Saaton Janam Maine Apne Diye… Maanga Yahi Jod Ke Apne Haath… Chand Aur Piya Dono Ek Saath… Aye Kash Dekhu Main Aaj Ki Raat- Karwa Chauth is finally here and all the pretty ladies will be fasting today for the long and prosperous life of their husbands. After eating sargi before sunrise, they do not eat anything for the entire day (not even a drop of water) and break their fast only after looking at the moon. Colourful bangles, mehendi adorned hands, sindoor applied on their foreheads- everyone vows to look exceptionally beautiful!
Our Bollywood divas are also not behind when it comes to celebrating Karwa Chauth. Seher Ki Ladki star, Raveena Tandon is also celebrating Karwa Chauth today for the long and prosperous life of her husband, Anil Thadani. Raveena had met Anil while she was producing films after staying away from the glitz and glamour world. After their meeting, they had started dating and on the eve of Raveena’s birthday in 2003, Anil had popped the question to her, and she had said a ‘yes’! The duo had a low-profile engagement in November 2003 and an extravagant wedding in 2004. Before we take you ahead in the eternal love story of Anil and Raveena, let us tell you how the actress is celebrating her Karwa Chauth.

On the occasion of Karwa Chauth, Raveena Tandon took to her Instagram and shared pictures from her mehendi and captioned the image as “Preparations for that upvas, some fast for the gods that they have never seen or met. For me, the holiest and the purest, is the prayers for the living souls, my parents, my husband my family, who enrich my life every day with love and happiness. I pray and thank god for their health and happiness. #karwachauth2019. Happy KarvaChauth and blessings and happiness to all of you.” For the main evening rituals, Raveena was recently spotted looking stunning in a red suit and contrasting green jhumkas and dear God, she looks stunning! Take a look:
Now coming back to Raveena and Anil’s love story, the duo had tied the knot on February 22, 2004, at a Udaipur Palace. Her wedding was a grand affair and when we say 'grand', we literally mean it! She had entered her mandap, sitting in a 100-year old doli that had once carried the Queen of Mewar. She had looked beautiful in her wedding attire, which was her mother’s but got it redesigned by Delhi-based designer, Manav Gangwani, which had dazzling gold thread embroidery and exquisite stones.
The doting hubby, Anil Thadani had once revealed how the duo had met and how their wedding was planned. He had said, “Raveena was producing her film Stumped. And I was releasing the film for her. At that point, I dealt only with her partners. It was only after the release that we met and got to know each other personally. We knew each other socially; we were business acquaintances, so the question of love at first sight didn’t arise. But one thing led to another and quickly. So, it didn’t take me long to propose to her. I guess when things are meant to be, they just work out. In fact, if you realise our courtship period didn’t last longer than five-six months. We were engaged for two months and then we got married. I never wanted a big wedding. I thought she would prefer a grand one but surprisingly she was on the same page. I think we’re similar in many ways. (Laughs) But there are natural differences of course.” (Suggested Read: Monalisa Looks Like Sunshine In A Yellow Saree As She Poses With Hubby, Vikrant For Karwa Chauth)
Anil Thadani had once revealed the topics they discuss together, and it is not movies. Elaborating on the same, Anil had said, “Our conversations are never about movies. What actually interests her mind is politics, general knowledge, pets... anything but films. Come to think of it, she’s a misfit in this line because movies don’t interest her at all. Yet I think she’s done an exceptional job in Satta. It’s one of my favourite movies besides a few of her other entertaining flicks.”
In the same interview, Anil had also shared how wifey, Raveena picks up a fight with him over trivial things and had said, “She’s always picking on me with trivial stuff like, ‘You don’t give me too much attention. You’re working so much, why are you not spending more time with me?’ The good thing is we’ve reached a point where troubles in the relationship normalise on their own. There’s no need to apologise.” (Also Read: Charu Asopa And Rajeev Sen Wish Each Other On Their First Karwa Chauth With Dreamy Pictures)
