Bollywood babo Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has been married for a year now, has fallen in line with othe rBollywood superstar wives and made place for important personal commitments in her work calendar.
The actress, who celebrated her first wedding anniversary in London yesterday, has told the Gori Tere Pyaar Mein team that she will be available only for four hours on October 22. The reason: She is keeping the Karva Chauth fast and wants to partake in the pujas and rituals that mark the special occasion.
Years ago, Hema Malini had told Yash Chopra, with whom she was shooting, that she would like to be let off early on Karva Chauth because the fasting always got to her by the evening.
Besides which she would, of course, need to be home in time to break her fast.
Sridevi, who is another follower of the tradition, is also said to be getting ready for the special fast this year.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been observing the Karva Chauth fast for the last six years. And it is said that the matriarch of the Bachchan family, Jaya Bachchan, encourages even Kajol, who is a neighbour, to come over to Jalsa and participate in the puja with her and her bahurani.
