The newly married couple Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya are celebrating their first Karva Chauth in which the wife fasts for her husband’s long life and well-being. While all Divyanka-Vivek fans are anxious to know how this popular TV bahu is celebrating the festival, she has come across an unexpected hurdle.



Divyanka is an ardent follower of these rituals and she also observed Hartaalika Teej a few months back. But this time, it seems that Divyanka had a tough time convincing her husband Vivek who did not want her to keep the fast and stay hungry the whole day. Divyanka confessed in a recent interview with an online portal that Vivek was absolutely against the fast.

That is really cute!

But this does not mean that Divyanka Tripathi will not be celebrating her first Karva Chauth with Vivek Dahiya. Divyanka managed to convince her husband and said in the interview that she was all excited and a little bit anxious about the festival. She also revealed that she has learned all the required practices from her mother-in-law as this will be her first Karva Chauth post marriage.

“He (Vivek) keeps telling me that we are together and happy so why fast and strain yourself? However, I am adamant that I will observe the fast because, apart from being an important ritual, it is romantic too,” she said in the interview.

Divyanka Tripathi seems to be happily fasting for hubby Vivek Dahiya today. She shared an image and wrote: “#HappyKarvachauth hubby.💞 May you have a long long looooong life. #NazarNaLage 🚫.”

Karva Chauth is one festival that all newly married North Indian women look forward to. While it is traditionally observed to pray for the long life of the husband, the festival actually celebrates the institution of marriage.

But the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actress Divyanka, due to her work commitments, will not be able to apply mehendi for the day. She said in an interview, “As actors, you are committed to your work and you cannot hamper your work due to your personal endeavors. People loved my mehendi during my marriage, for which too I actually took a huge risk, considering I had to resume work after marriage. But, it was my marriage and I had to do it. However, this time around, I won’t be able to apply mehendi as the track of the show will get affected.”

Well, on being asked about the gift she is expecting from her hubby on her first Karva Chauth and if Vivek is fasting too, she said, “I am not expecting anything from him. If, I come to know that he, too is fasting or something, I will go and feed him myself. Because, I know he cannot remain hungry and has to be well-fed. Apart from that, we will go on a late dinner together. If he comes up with any surprise, I will be happy and even if not, I will be equally happy.”

Divyanka and Vivek you are giving serious goals to all married couples out there!
