How Bollywood celebs are celebrating Eid!

Mahesh Bhatt,Shabana Azmi,Adnan Sami,Zarine Khan”>

Mahesh Bhatt: “Celebrations begin tonight as soon as we

spot the moon. Like every year we usher in Eid by playing ‘Gali Mein Aaj Chand Nikla’ from my last directorial film Zakhm. I look forward to eating my Eid specialty, a

uniquely designed vegetable biryani made especially for me by my neighbour. Do you know

I keep all the Roza in the memory of my mother? I’ve been doing that since 1998 after her

demise.”

Shabana Azmi: “I’ll be celebrating at home with family and close friends, as has

been the norm. During earlier times, Abba (father Kaifi Azmi)’s friends would drop in and

the standard fare dahi vadas and sheer khorma. Now everybody just comes for lunch. Biryani

kabaab, aloo ghost, chicken dum, mirchi ka salan and sheer khorma is the Eid menu. On the

night before Eid everyone pools in to cut the badaam and pista for the sheer khorma. Kids put on

mehndi, bangle-wali comes to make jodas for all and everybody waits with bated breath to sight

the Eid Ka Chand. Alas, the ghararas have made way for the more practical salwar-kurta. Kids

look forward to their Eidi. I love the goodwill and the bohnhomie and most of all the continuity

of tradition.”

Adnan Sami: “My wife Roya and I will spend Eid with close friends. Our thoughts

and hearts are with the people of Gaza and the tragic times they are enduring. May the Lord have

mercy on them.”

Zarine Khan: “I’ll be having family lunch. My entire khandaan comes together. Then

in the evening we will visit friends.”
