Karwa Chauth is a tradition where women fast to pray for the long life of their husbands. In the recent times, not only women, even the husbands have started keeping a fast in order to support their wives. Our favourite celebs celebrated the festival of Karwa Chauth with much fanfare. While some organised parties at their residences there were many others who kept it to their families. Here are pictures of how the stars celebrated the festival:
