Nagpur: Karva Chauth isn’t just about doing puja and fasting anymore as Nagpur women gave the festival a modern makeover with parties and day long pampering.
Karva Chauth has come a long way, from being a festival where women pray for the longevity of their husbands to become lavish affairs where the ladies have an excuse to pamper themselves with good music, fancy clothes and even foot massages!
All the naach gaana and traditional tamasha on a grand scale that we saw in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham on the occasion of Karva Chauth, seems to have left a lasting impression on the women here.
With all the same features Anshul Budhraja and Neelima Sood organized ‘Sun Sawariya’ a grand pre-Karva Chauth Bollywood theme party for Nagpur ladies at Center Point Hotel sponsored by Karan Kothari Jewellers.
Jatin Khandwani’s power-packed dance performance on retro and western songs was applauded with love by all the ladies. Many tittles were bestowed such as Best Outfit, Biggest Nose Ring, Biggest Bindi, Saas-Bahu Jodi, Mother-Daughter Jodi etc.
Renowned anchors Shruti Tripathi and Farhan Kazi hosted the party with energetic performance and with their witty one liners.
And the end of the party was more memorable as ladies started tapping their feet on back to back Bollywood numbers played by DJ.
