- Karva Chauth is celebrated by married women
- Married women fast all day long and offer prayers to the moon
- Bollywood films have some famous Karva Chauth scenes
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
This scene from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is our ticket to time-travel to the 90s. In the film, Simran (played by Kajol), who is in love with Raj (played by Shah Rukh Khan), fasts for him. She takes the first sip of water by Raj's hands and completes the ritual. Later, Raj and Simran relish a meal together. This also reminds us of lyrics Tere hath se peekar paani from the song Ghar Aaja Pardesi.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
In Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kajol, who plays the role of Shah Rukh Khan's wife in the film, fasts for her husband. She sings Apni maang suhaagan ho sang humesha saajan ho in the song Bole Chudiyan and offers prayers to the moon. She looks at Rahul (played by Shah Rukh) and then at the moon and prays for his good health.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
The Karva Chauth song titled Chand Chupa Badal Mein from Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai's film is still played and loved by all. In the song Sameer (played by Salman) romances Nandini (played by Aishwarya).
Hema Malini fasts for Amitabh Bachchan in Baghban. A very emotional Karva Chauth scene from the film, in which Hema Malini ends her fast over the phone with Amitabh Bachchan because they were not together and the couple remember their good times.
Ishq Vishq Pyaar Vyaar
Another very cute scene that we remember is from Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao's film Ishq Vishq Pyaar Vyaar. In the film, Payal (played by Amrita), who is in love with Rajeev (played by Shahid), fasts for him. They are unmarried in the film and Shahid surprises Amrita by visiting her on Karva Chauth.
So, now when we have taken you back to the memorable Karva Chauth scenes (you can thank us later), be all set to celebrate the festival tomorrow.
We wish every married women and brides-to-be a very Happy Karva Chauth!
