Sharing the photos, the actress wrote: "I have always believed that traditions are what you make of them... to me, they are a bridge between the past, present, and future. I respect where they came from but never hesitated to give it my own meaning. Karwa Chauth is one such festival... to me, it has always been a celebration of family and friends that are family."

"A day spent in rituals with the people you love. The fact that I get pampered by my husband is a bonus. It's a celebration of togetherness and companionship, cementing the love we share with our husbands and the bond between our family and friends," she added.

She also revealed the fact about her outfit and wrote, "Fun fact... I'm wearing my wedding lehenga from 19 years ago by Manish Malhotra and have paired it with this beautiful mangalsutra from Bulgari. Then and now, the worlds can meet, if you just approach it with love."

Sonali Bendre is a firm believer in reusing her designer outfits. She on several occasions has done the same and manages to ace every bit of her looks. The actress was last seen as a judge on a TV reality show India's Best Dramebaaz. Some of her best stints include Sarfarosh, Hum Saath-Saath Hain, Major Saab, Diljale, Major Saab, and Duplicate among others.
