Karva Chauth, a fast in which married women fast from sunrise to moonrise, for the well-being of their husbands, was celebrated across the nation on Sunday. And like every year, a ‘Karva Chauth bash’ was hosted by Sunita Kapoor, Anil Kapoor’s wife. The bash was attended by Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Bhavna Pandey and Neelam Kothari and also included the other ladies of the Kapoor household. Actress Sridevi, Boney Kapoor’s wife and Maheep Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor’s wife, who are Sunita’s sisters-in-law, together with the other ladies made for a pretty picture.
Hostess Sunita Kapoor looked pretty in a red suit. Sridevi opted for a pastel green sari and looked gorgeous, while Shilpa wore a red and yellow Lehariya sari. Maheep looked pretty in a bottle green sari and Raveena Tandon was dressed in a pink suit.
Sridevi shared a picture on Instagram and captioned it “Happy Karva Chauth.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra also shared a video wishing everyone a “Happy Karva Chauth.” She also shared a glimpse of the ‘Karva Chauth binge’ post all the rituals.

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who took a stand against the patriarchal tradition of only the wife keeping the fast, shared a picture on Twitter in which he got his wife’s name written with henna on his palm. He wrote, “त से ताहिरा. Let’s celebrate equality and change this patriarchal tradition. Join her if u can’t dissuade her from fasting. #KarvaChauth.”
