Bollywood celebrities celebrate Karwa Chauth every year with a lot of fanfare and post images and videos of the celebrations on social media. On Thursday, actor Raveena Tandon shared a number of images and videos with Shilpa Shetty and their married friends as they celebrated the festival together, taking her Instagram fans on a virtual Karwa Chauth celebration. During the Karwa Chauth celebrations at a friend’s house, they also remembered their close friend Akansha Malhotra.
Raveena said she was letting go during the festival of Karwa Chauth by showing glimpses of the festive decorations with flowers and candles; her mehendi embellished with the names of her children, Rasha and Ranbir; Shilpa Shetty dancing to Bollywood music; and more. Shilpa wore a vibrant red, white, and green ensemble, while the actor chose an ethnic yellow outfit with heavy jewellery. In one of the videos Raveena uploaded, Shilpa danced to Piya Tu Ab To Aaja (Monica, Oh My Darling!).
“Most of the time, we all work hard and life takes over. Time flies, but the Christmas season is when you let go,” Raveena wrote in the description of her Instagram image. We are all about living life to the fullest, loving it, laughing, and celebrating each day. Thank you to my babies, @siddhid11, @bindiyadutta6, and @nidhiduttaofficial, for always being such wonderful hosts. Beautiful Raveena ji, a fan wrote in a comment on her post. Shilpa and Raveena together, too.
Shilpa had earlier on Wednesday offered a glimpse of her home’s Karwa Chauth preparations. On Instagram Stories, Shilpa also gave us a sneak peek at her sargi thali. The star also wished her fans and followers a “good Karwa Chauth.” Snacks, milk cake, candies, and fruits were all included in her thali. Shilpa’s thali also had bangles and a bindi. Traditionally, mothers-in-law give their daughters-in-law a traditional tray called a sargi. It has food, clothes, jewelry, and beauty products that married women eat before dawn while they fast all day until the moon rises.
