Married women across India are fasting today as part of the Hindu festival of Karwa Chauth. It’s the day women observe a fast from dawn to dusk, praying for the long lives of their spouses. Of course with time, the celebrations have become more fantastic, with grand outfits and get-togethers marking the end of the fast. Bollywood on and off screen has celebrated the annual fest over the years. Today we look at actresses who may be undertaking a subdued line – owing to COVID-19 and its safety practices - but are marking it none-the-less and some who are posting throwback photos.
