Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is currently shooting for her next flick "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" in London and thus, the actress had to celebrate Karva Chauth away from her family.

Aishwarya is reportedly very particular about this festival and she observed fast on 30 October in London.

To acknowledge her efforts, husband Abhishek Bachchan flew down to break the fast and completed all other rituals related to it.

"It was the traditional festival of Karva Chauth on Friday and just like any other Indian woman, Aishwarya followed this ritual religiously. In spite of being away from home and immersed in the shoot of 'Ae Dil Hai Muskhil' in London, Ash made sure to follow all the rituals dutifully," Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying.

"In fact, she was quite determined to follow every single detail attached to the festival. The actress had observed a fast and broke it only after the arrival of Abhishek, who had flown in to acknowledge his wife's efforts," the insider further added.

"Abhishek had bought special gifts with him and also the traditional 'sargi' which was put together by the mom Jaya Bachchan."

The former Miss World got to celebrate Karva Chauth and her birthday, which was on 1 November, with her husband.

Meanwhile, after "Jazbaa", Aishwarya has many projects in her hands including "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", Omung Kumar's biopic on Sarabjit Singh, a Mani Ratnam directorial and Sujoy Ghosh's two films.

Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" features Aishwarya, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. The flick is being touted as a complicated love story produced by Dharma Productions.

Buzz is that apart from Ranbir and Anushka's romance, the audience will see Ranbir and Aishwarya's chemistry as well. It is believed to be a love story about a man falling for a woman older than him.

The film also has Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan in a special role. Apparently, he will play the role of a hot DJ in the film, which is slated for release in October 2016.
