Padmini Kolhapure celebrated Karwa Chauth at Sunita Kapoor's residence with other celebrity wives like Mira Rajput. Padmini's daughter-in-law Shaza Morani celebrated her first Karwa Chauth. Shaza is married to Priyaank Sharma. 

Sonali Bendre looked stunning as she dressed up in her wedding lehenga for Karwa Chauth. Like Yami, Sonali also flaunted her Bvlgari mangalsutra. Sharing pictures, the actress wrote, "I have always believed that traditions are what you make of them... to me they are a bridge between the past, present and future. I respect where they came from but never hesitated to give it my own meaning. Karwa Chauth is one such festival… to me, it has always been a celebration of family and friends that are family. A day spent in rituals with the people you love. The fact that I get pampered by my husband is a bonus. It’s a celebration of togetherness and companionship, cementing the love we share with our husbands & the bond between our family and friends. Fun fact… I’m wearing my wedding lehenga from 19 years ago by @manishmalhotra05 and have paired it with this beautiful mangalsutra from @bulgari. Then and now, the worlds can meet, if you just approach it with love."

Shilpa Shetty shared a picture of herself and wished her fans a Happy Karwa Chauth. She wrote, "Wishing you all a happy Karvachauth and happy fasting ladies ..May you and yours be blessed with health, protection and abundance always."
