India’s rich heritage and culture make it one of the most beautiful and colourful countries in the world. We believe in strengthening relationships through festivals, as festivals give us a break from our everyday hassles and also give us a chance to rejoice with our loved ones. Karva Chauth is one such festival that shows we care.

The Karva Chauth scene in Baghban is unique in its own way, where not only the wife but  the husband also fasts on the occasion. Also, both of them break their fast over the phone, signifying that nothing can impede true love.

Bollywood never fails to incorporate our values, traditions and also festivals in the movies. And so, like every other festival, Karva Chauth too has an important place in Bollywood. Read on for more:

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge

DDLJ has a special place in Bollywood when it comes to romance. Like who doesn’t admire the legendary pose of heartthrob King Khan? Doesn’t it make you go gaga, girls? And the description of this lovey-dovey movie might sound incomplete without the Karva Chauth scene. In fact, this was, indeed, the cutest Karva Chauth scene in Bollywood. The moment when Simran was waiting for Raj and then he arrives, and also apologises for coming late, their tiff definitely touched a chord with many of us. And like all the love stories, they too end up celebrating the festival with love, together.

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

A perfect plot for newly married couples and for those who are madly in love with each other. In fact, the song ‘Chand Chupa Badal me’ has its own importance on the eve of Karva Chauth. The iconic couple Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan added spark to the romantic setting. In fact, this movie and DDLJ literally started the trend of girls fasting for their love, even when unmarried.

Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham

Do you remember a Karan Johar movie that does not have a grand celebration? Definitely, not, as there isn’t any such movie. Karan Johar’s movies are incomplete without a grand celebration and so is Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. Interestingly, the Karva Chauth scene is filmed with Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan and the two of them are unmarried and totally in love too in the movie. It won’t be wrong to say that they definitely set the bar high for any such romantic scenes. You can feel the blooming romance between the two people who love each other but aren’t married yet. Festivals and traditions like Karva Chauth add value to the purity of their relation. It also featured Shahrukh Khan and Kajol who added the fun element to the song ‘Bole Chudiyan’.

Baghban

Does romance know any age? Definitely, not! And this is perfectly proven in this movie, where Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini, as a couple, leave behind young couples in their love for each other. A combination of love, romance, and ethics, the movie incorporates all the essentials of a happy family. The Karva Chauth scene in this movie is unique in its own way, where not only the wife but also the husband fasts for his wife. Also, both of them break their fast over the phone, signifying that nothing can impede true love.

Zeher

Featuring Emraan Hashmi, Shamita Shetty, and Udita Goswami, the movie proved to be a perfect thriller. The Karwa Chauth scene in this movie became even more interesting with its song  ‘Agar Tum Mil Jao’. The 2005 hit mystery narrates the story of a couple, whose life is nearly destroyed when a third person walks in their life. Anyways, they manage to tackle the problem together.

Hum Aapke Hain Koun

The iconic duo of Salman and Madhuri never fail in spreading their magic. Same with this movie, where romance blooms between the two after Madhuri’s sister in the movie ties knot with Salman’s brother. The song ‘Maye ni Maye’ perfectly adds to the enthusiasm of the festival of Karva Chauth.
