Karva Chauth is indeed very special for married women. On this day, the Hindu women observe fasting and pray for long life and good health of their husbands. Even the Bollywood divas don't stay behind the commoners. This year was unique for Priyanka Chopra Jonas as it was for the first time that she celebrated Karva Chauth. The list also includes Anushka Sharma, Shilpa Shetty, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Nusrat Jahan. The beautiful actresses of B-Town wore stunning sarees, bangles which were complimented with sindoor and beautiful mehendi.

Priyanka observed her first Karva Chauth for her husband and singer Nick Jonas. She took to Instagram one photograph and captioned it: "Karva Chauth at a @Jonasbrothers concert. Definitely a first I'll remember!"

For actress Anushka Sharma and cricketer Virat Kohli, who had tied the knot in December 2017, it was their second Karwa Chauth.

Kohli took to Twitter and posted a picture with Anushka captioned: "The ones who fast together laugh together. Happy karvachauth."

Anushka also posted a similar image on her Instagram and wrote: "My partner for lifetime and beyond and my fasting partner for the day. Happy karvachauth to all".
