UCWeb, owner of UC Browser and UC News, has initiated the 11.11 UC Shopping Fest to celebrate the festival of lights with its 130 Million Indian users. The online carnival was kicked off with Bollywood stars Karishma Tanna and Bharti Singh engaging in a friendly banter. Renowned astrologer Acharya Indu Prakash Ji will join the celebrities at 8:30 p.m. on November 2 and 5, for a live chat session on UC Browser and UC News to reveal their fortune on career, love life and more. He is touted to discuss Karishma’s love life in detail in the upcoming chat session. Karishma parted ways with her boyfriend two years back and has been single since then. “I would like to be in a relationship in future and settle down with somebody,” said Karishma in an interview months ago. UC Diwali Live Chat will reveal her chances for love on November 2. UCers also get a chance to interact with the astrologer and the Bollywood actresses during the chat sessions.
