Abha Parmar (Putli Bai) from &TV’s Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari shares, “As an actor, I have been enacting Karva Chauth special scenes with my co-actors, but it’s a whole different feeling to celebrate it in real life. Every Karva Chauth has been special to me from the time I got married. Initially, my mother-in-law would make my ‘Sargi’, and now I make it for my daughter-in-law (kindly confirm this with the artist). I love everything about this festival right from getting up early to have sargi, doing the puja along with my family, waiting for the moon to break my fast and then eventually completing the rituals by having water and sweet as I see my husband through the sieve. My son-in-law gets sugarcane juice for all the ladies in the house, and with a lot of love serves everyone. As I hail from North Bharat, Kadhi Chawal is one of the dishes that we cook every year as a staple on this special day. Karva Chauth is a great festival to bring all the women in the family together to celebrate friendship and togetherness.”
Shubhangi Atre (Angoori) from &TV’s Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai shares, “Karva Chauth holds a special place in my heart because of the customs that my family has been following over the years. Every year my in-laws visit us a day before prep for the festival the next day. My mother-in-law and I wake up early in the morning to have sargi while my father-in-law and husband serve us food. My husband and father-in-law pamper my mother-in-law and me throughout the day.
Dressing up for this day always tops my list. I am looking forward to wearing a beautiful maroon coloured suit for the evening and pair up with some of my wedding jewellery. It’s been 20 years, and I still feel the jitters in my stomach when my husband gifts me something on this day.”
