Former Union Minister and BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi extended his wishes on the occasion of Eid and said that India will be the only country where followers of all religions live and celebrate festivals together.
On the auspicious occasion, they share how they plan to celebrate the festival and make it enjoyable and memorable.
Hiba Nawab from ‘Woh Toh Hai Albela’ says: “This Eid will be a little special as my mother is here so will get to eat all yummy food prepared by her. I love eating biryani so I’m very happy. This whole month is about doing good deeds and doing charity so I’ve been doing that and I keep this as my every year ritual.
“I’ll also celebrate it with my family on set on ‘Woh Toh Hai Albela’ as we also do Iftar together on set. On the day of Eid, I’ll call all my friend’s home and have good food and spend some good time together.”
Talking about celebrating the festival, Alma Hussein from ‘Sapnon Ki Chhalaang’ shares: “This year, I will celebrate Eid through a video call with my family because I am currently shooting and will be celebrating this festival with the cast. While we connect with the Almighty in this holy month, it’s also a time when the family gets together, and I have a lot of fun and enjoyment because I get Eidi from them. While I’m missing all of that, I have prayed to Allah to keep everyone happy and safe. Eid Mubarak to all my fans and friends.”
On the other hand, ‘Tere Ishq Mein Ghayal’ actress Reem Sameer Shaikh says that the best of all gifts on Eid is the presence of a happy family.
“Every year I try to celebrate the holy day with my family and friends. It feels so positive to be trying on new clothes, eating delicious food specially cooked by my Dadi and hosting the guests. I remember, as a child every year, I would dress up in the finest of my clothes and wait for the elders to give me Eidi.”
Sana Sayyad, who essays the role of Palki in ‘Kundali Bhagya’, shares: “Eid is a joyous occasion that brings together family, friends, and communities to celebrate the blessings and grace of Allah. Having said that, Eid has always been about my family and I only meet my family and relatives on Eid. In fact, every year, my entire family comes to my house and we have a huge feast.”
“While we also give each other Eidi, rather than focusing on just material possessions, we also have a deep appreciation for the opportunity we have got to spend time with our families. Though I will be shooting for Kundali Bhagya this year, I plan to pack up early and spend time with my family. Here’s wishing everyone Eid Mubarak,” she concludes.
