The festival of Karwa Chaut came too early for the celebrity couples who recently shot in Goa for the show on NDTV Imagine, Pati Patni aur Woh.
While the married ladies all over the globe celebrated the auspicious day on October 7th, the ladies in the Imagine show, Juhi Parmar, Shilpa Agnihotri, Rakhi Sawant, Mouni Roy and Debinna were asked to shoot for it much earlier.
According to our source, "This brought about a mixed reaction. While the unmarried girls Mouni and Debinna were thrilled to keep a vrat for their partners, Juhi and Shilpa who are already married refused to keep the vrat".
"Juhi and Shilpa felt that it was not proper of them to keep the vrat for their husbands on a wrong day. They had a talk with the team and came to a conclusion that they will not keep a vrat in the show", adds our source.
However, Mouni and Debina had a whale of a time, celebrating the occasion. The Karwa Chaut episode will be aired tonight.
As per our source, "Rakhi too did not keep the vrat and moved away from the rituals, saying that she did not have the energy to go on a fast after managing the kid as well as the home. Besides, she is a Maharastrian and they do not have a custom like Karwa Chaut. They observe only Vaad Savitri".
We spoke to Juhi Parmar who explained that, "Actually, this was to be my first Karwa Chaut after marriage. And above all, the day they asked us to shoot was actually not the Karwa Chaut day. I believe in performing the rituals on the right day, and so refused to fast when we shot on the show".
All the couples had a gala time as their family members had come to Goa to be with them during the occasion.
Tune in to Pati Patni aur Woh on Imagine for the Karwa Chaut Special Episode tonight..
