Karwa Chauth is one festival that the ladies of our country have been religiously following over the years. They observe a day long dfast without food and water for their husband’s long life. While some believe in it, some do it because of the tradition.
Our b-town is no different. We have many actresses who follow this ritual and starve the entire day. Be it Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Sridevi or Twinkle Khanna, all the ladies have celebrated this occasion with much fervour.
However, isn’t it unfair that only the women are fasting whereas the men gorge onto food and water all through the day? If it is for the long life of your partner, then shouldn’t men also be doing it just the way Shah Rukh Khan did it for the love of his life in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge?!
In our Karwa Chauth special, we list down few married men from Bollywood, who we think should also observe the day long fast. Do tell us if you agree on it!
1. Saif Ali Khan: When you have a wife like Kareena, how can you not want her to live forever!
2. Abhishek Bachchan: Though Abhishek admitted to it yesterday that he doesn’t believe in the festival, if his gorgeous wife is fasting, he can surely give her some company!
3. Anil Kapoor: He is one actor who has often expressed his love for his lovely wife. Then how about fasting for her long life sir?
4. Shahid Kapoor: This newly married man has already broken millions of hearts by getting hitched. Now that he has such a lovely wife, who has brought a 360 degree change in his life, and that too a good one, for her Sasha you can surely starve for a day!
5. Riteish Deshmukh: In Bollywood, Riteish and Genelia are one of the most good looking and a perfect couple. Their cute love exchanges and romantic conversations on Twitter often catch everyone’s attention. And that Riteish loves his baiko way too much, we are sure it wouldn’t be difficult for him to observe the Karwa Chauth fast for her.Hai na?
6. Akshay Kumar: When you have a husband like Akshay Kumar, who is adventurous in nature and loves doing stunts, you gotta keep praying for his safety everyday. And that his doting wife Twinkle has been doing religiously. Sweet we say! But then how about Akki too doing it for her, after all it isn’t easy being a wife right?
7. Amitabh Bachchan: Big B and Jaya are probably one of the coolest couples. And while we have seen Jaya fast for Amitabh Bachchan for so many years, we haven’t seen it happen the other way round. With Senior Bachchan following this ritual in his film Baghban, one wonders if he does it in his real life too!
