Indian festivals are full of glitz and glamour. The atmosphere gets electrifying with the scrumptious food, sparkling hues and the warmth of the celebration. And Bollywood always succeeds in portraying festive grandeur with the perfect combination of splendour and romance. As you get ready for the festival of Karwa Chauth tomorrow, we serve you sartorial inspiration from the most romantic Karwa Chauth scenes from Bollywood. Don’t just go gaga over them; get inspired and strike a fabulous festive look on your special day.
Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
We can never forget Raj fasting for Simran and she in turn playing all the tricks to have the sip of water from Raj! DDLJ has personified romance in the scene with utmost cheesiness. We love Kajol’s sleek yet comfortable look. With pulled back hair, minimal make-up, extravagant jewelelry and a chiffon sari, this is a look you can recreate easily.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan, one of the most iconic jodis of all times. Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam is a love story that still gives one butterflies in the stomach. The Karwa Chauth scene particularly stood out with the popularisation of the song Chaand Chupa Badal Mein. Aishwarya donned a fairy-like lavender monotone lehenga with a sheer dupatta, long open locks, a flushed-out face and minimal jewellery to complement the mood of the song.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham shows the building up of two of the best love stories. And when it comes to festivals, Karan Johar movies vastly out-do other films. Kajol and Shahrukh’s chemistry shines as she dons a traditional red and off-white ensemble with matching jewellery. Kareena too sizzles in a peach sharara, straight hair and a delicate maang tika as she grooves on the famous song Bole Chudiyan.
The blockbuster hit saw Karishma Kapoor and Aamir Khan romancing on the big screen and the Karwa Chauth scene is a moment that is etched in the hearts of Bollywood lovers. Karishma looks beautiful in her traditional outfit, a glowing face and a classic bun with flowers adorned with traditional sindoor.
