Kareena Kapoor recently completed her one year of marriage with hubby Saif Ali Khan. She has now told the makers of Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (GTPM), that on October 22, she will only be available for a few hours as it is Karva Chauth.
Kareena wants to participate in all the customs, rituals and pujas, which she would be performing for Saif on the auspicious occasion. She would hold a fast for the Nawab of Pataudi and that is the reason why she is cutting short from the promotion of her upcoming release GTPM. She has now joined the bandwagon of Bollywood beauties who have been following the tradition for years.
Actresses from the film industry who perform the Puja every year include Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hema Malini and Kajol among many others. It has been reported that Yesteryear actress Hema Malini had told the legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra that she will leave the shooting early as the fast takes a toll on her.
Kareena has even asked Saif to keep his dates free on Karva Chauth as she wants to spend time with him. She is very enthusiastic about the whole affair as this will be the first time that she would be a part of this tradition.
