Karwa Chauth in Bollywood

The festival of Karva Chauth has been given a lot of hype in Bollywood. The ritual of looking at the moon and then the husband’s face before breaking fast, the tradition of pouring extravagant gifts to the newlyweds or even the decade old wives by the husbands and also the mothers-in-law have all been depicted very glamorously. The bond between the members of an Indian family and the dedication to follow the ancient rich culture is awe inspiring and holds up a lesson for the coming generations to continue with the country’s heritage. The beautiful Bolllywood actresses perform the role of devoted Hindu wife ready to sacrifice every personal comfort to usher in good fortune and love and luck in the family and especially for the husband.
