Pooja Banerjee, who essays the role of Rhea Mehra in Zee TV's show KumKum Bhagya, is celebrating her Karwa Chauth with much fervour. While the ongoing pandemic may have dampened the vibrant festive spirit, actress Pooja Banerjee has been finding a way to keep the festivity within her alive.
The actress has been spending some considerable time bonding with the Kumkum Bhagya team and very recently also celebrated Navratri and Durga Puja with her dearest team of co-actors. With Karwa Chauth being celebrated today, Pooja is retaining her yearly ritual of fasting while shooting on set through the day, only to fulfil the Karwa Chauth customs with her hubby, Sandeep.

Pooja Banerjee revealed, "Every year I keep a fast on Karwa Chauth and this year as well, I'll be doing the same. In fact, I usually shoot on Karwa Chauth and this year too, I am shooting for Kumkum Bhagya. However, I do plan to wrap up early and after doing the puja, my husband and I will simultaneously break our fast together. To be honest, Sandeep doesn’t prefer for me to keep fasts, but I still do, and hence, he also joins along. It’s like our little tradition now.”
Talking about her plans for this year, Pooja mentioned, “I have never celebrated Karwa Chauth with my family, it has always been with friends. We all do the puja together and our husbands spend time with each other while we friends chit-chat and then after the Puja, we all eat dinner together. I have known them from the time when I was back in Nagpur and we stayed close even after shifting to Mumbai, so this festival is quite special and we plan to continue our yearly tradition this year as well, but obviously with absolute precautions."
