Amitabh Bachchan posted on Facebook.

"Abhishek out of country on shoot .. so face of husband seen through Skype, for Karvachauth by Aishwarya .. what times we live in," he said on Twitter.

Anil Kapoor organised a small party for all the family members and his friends at his residence to celebrate the festival. Boney Kapoor, Sridevi, Sanjay Kapoor and his wife Maheep, Chunky Pandey and his wife Bhavna and other people attended the occassion.
