Abhi was away but Aishwarya performed the ritual with full devotion and thanks to the advanced technology Skype as the couple communicated to each other via Skype on the special day.

Aishwarya was spotted with her mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan at the terrace of the Bachchan’s residence Jalsa with the karva chauth thali. The Bachchan family is very traditional. Jaya Bachchan is observing Karva Chauth ever since she married to Big B and now Aishwarya is following the footstep of her mother-in-law and has been performing the ritual with full faith ever since she got married to Abhishek.

Father-in-law and megastar Amitabh Bachchan was also spotted with the Bachchan ladies. Big B is quite amused with the modern method of communication, "Abhishek out of country on shoot .. so face of husband seen through Skype, for Karvachauth by Aishwarya .. what times we live in !!," he posted.

First time after marriage, Abhishek has been away from Aishwarya on Karva Chauth, he tweeted: "My 1st Karwa Chawth away from the Mrs. Thank god for Facetime!"
