Mere Angne Mein actress Charu Asopa and Sushmita Sen’s brother Rajeev Sev got hitched in June last year in Goa. Their wedding was nothing but a fairy tale one as they had two kinds of wedding rituals – a Christian style wedding and a traditional Bengali style event. Since the two got into matrimony, the duo has been treating with some mushy and loaded with romance photos on their Instagram feed, making our hearts flutter. However, due to coronavirus outbreak, Rajeev and Charu are also self-quarantining right now. With India being locked down for 21 days, TV actress Charu Asopa still managed to celebrate her first Gangaur festival post marriage.
She recently shared a few photos on her feed in which she is seen dressed in a gorgeous red saree, giving out full Padmaavati vibes. Since the festival is mostly celebrated among Rajputs, the actress is also decked up in Rajasthani attire. While sharing the pictures of the same on her Instagram account, she accompanied them with: “My first gangaur celebration after marriage .. #quarantined #day19 #21dayslockdown #21dayschallenge”
Just for curiosity we even visited Rajeev’s Insta account and thank god, we did as we got to see some adorable and love-soaked pictures of the couple and he captioned it as, “Quarantined together.” Check out all the pictures below:
The actress celebrated her first Gangaur festival and speaking about the festival, she shared her views with ETimes and revealed how she managed to make the festival a memorable one despite the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown. She was quoted saying, “I had nothing to decorate as I couldn't step out of the house for buying flowers and other stuff due to the 21 days lockdown. So instead of grass I used jowar to do the rituals. Luckily, gangaur and other necessary stuff my mom had already sent to me in advance from Bikaner before the coronavirus scare began. I tried to make whatever I could do in this lockdown situation. As sweets were not available I decided to make prasad at home," shared the actress.
Talking about the importance of Gangaur festival, the actress said, "The festival of Gangaur is celebrated in Rajasthan and it is celebrated by married and unmarried women. They worship Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva to get a good husband and family after marriage. As this was my first Gangaur I got ready and wore a beautiful red saree. As there were no elders in the house present nor I could step out to ask for help, I decided to take assistance on phone and did everything on my own. Rajeev has also been a great help."
