Ekta to offer Iftaar to devotees during Ramadan
The mammoth Akshay Kumar-Imran Khan-Sonakshi Sinha-Sonali Bendre starrer Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai …Again, slated for an Eid (August 8) release this year is already in the news for being among the most keenly awaited films of the year.
And to mark the occasion, producer Ekta Kapoor is planning to throw iftaar parties during the holy month of Ramadan. The plan is to offer iftaar food to the poor at five dargahs in Mumbai. “The logistics are still being figured out,” says a source, who adds, “The cast may attend these too!”
Incidentally, the film’s key characters are all Muslim.
Ekta confirmed the news. “I’m a religious individual. The good fortune that has come my way has always encouraged me to pray before the release of my films. For Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai…Again, which is among the biggest releases of the year, during Ramadan, we will offer devotees Iftaar. This is my way of seeking blessings.”
