Ramadan is a holy month for the Muslims which is followed by EID
which is their festival. During the month of Ramadan, Iftaar is a
religious observance. It refers to the evening meal when Muslims break
their fast at the time of sunset. It is often done as a community when
people get together to break their whole day fast. On the same we got in touch with a few of the television celebrities to know their most special Iftaar party so far.
Let's have a look on what they said...
When I was young, all my friends mom's and my mom's friends used to
come home and cook special delicacies and then break our whole day fast.
This all does not happen now but I really cherish those days. Those were
the most special days of Iftaar during Eid. Nowadays Iftaar party
is at my home only and we all family members get together for the same.
Eid has been very special to me every year as it is our new year, so I
look forward to new beginnings.
- I am not celebrating Eid this year. But the
most special Iftaar party for me was last year at my Aunt's place when
we all family members and relatives got together for Iftaar. The best
was that my nephew who stays in Dubai spent the Ramazan and Eid with us
after a very long time. Also it was my last Eid with my mother.

- Eid is a very special occasion for me, all my
friends from the Radio industry, television industry, other close
friends, relatives come together and celebrate this festival. Lots of
food is cooked at home and it is a house party kept at my residence.
This year I am looking forward to call in my new friends
from my new show Gustakh Dil, as this show has all my age group
co-actors and it is fun being with them. My only prayer this year on Eid
will be that my show does well and we get good TRP's too. Also that my
show lasts longer on Indian television. This show is very special to me
and I hope it does great.
- From the past 5 to 6 years I am shooting
on Ramadan and Eid so I don't get much time for Iftaari celebrations.
The best part is that I stay with my family and I get to celebrate this
month with them. We have a small get together at our home and this is
what make Ifaari special to me. The most memorable Iftaari for me was
during my show Bandini. All the people on the sets used to contribute
for Iftaari and we used to get lots of food on the sets. Everybody used
to be a part of it and we had a great time on the sets of the show.
- My most memorable Iftaar party was with the singer
Lucky Ali and the ace actor Rishi Kapoor, last year. During the Iftaar
party Lucky Ali sang for us and mesmerized everyone with his melodious
voice. To be honest, every year is brilliant.
