This Karwa Chauth saw several Bollywood stars including Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra dress and fast for their husbands. This was also the first Karwa Chauth for Shloka Mehta, daughter-in-law of Mukesh and Nita Ambani. Also observing the famous Hindu festival was Isha Ambani, who got married to Anand Piramal in December last year. But, it was IAS topper Tina Dabi Khan, who set the internet on fire with her Karwa Chauth video even surpassing the buzz created by Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, who had shared his own photo with Anushka.
Tina, who married fellow IAS topper Athar Aamir Khan last year, took to Instagram to inform that she was working even on Karwa Chauth. But, in another video, she was seen flaunting her sindoor (vermillion) highlighting her status as a married woman. Although, this was her second Karwa Chauth, this was the first time the affable IAS topper had chosen to flaunt her sindoor, which signifies a woman’s married status.
While sharing a video from inside her office, Tina’s caption read, “Office on Karwa Chauth.” In the video, Tina was seen quickly signing the documents to clear the backlog before she called it a day.
She also uploaded the same video as part of her Insta story, but also added another video of her Karwa Chauth celebration.
Dressed in a printed emerald green band gala kurta with a contrast beige palazzo, Tina was seen twirling in her lawn while flaunting her traditional married woman look.
The IAS topper from Delhi has wisely disabled the comments section to her latest Karwa Chauth photo fearing online trolling by religious fanatics. Not so long ago, Trinamool Congress MP and Bengali actress, Nusrat Jahan, had to face incessant trolling for her decision to sport the sindoor after marrying a Hindu businessman.
Karwa Chauth is a popular Hindu festival when wives observe a day-long fast praying for a long life for their husbands.
Last month, Tina had informed her fans how she had been working hard to create her ‘own paradise’ in her lawn. Sharing a video of the lawn of her residence, she had written, “Have been putting some effort in creating my own paradise in the midst of a busy city.”
Tina Dabi Khan had topped the IAS exams in 2016 with Athar Aamir Khan securing the second position the same year. Both fell in love with each other during the training and tied the knot in 2018.
