They have arranged their respective Iftar bashes to promote their films on the same day and almost at the same time. This situation has put people in a tight spot as they now have to rush from Ekta’s party at Andheri to Bandra.”
For the special occasion of Eid Milan and his team are planning to launch a special song on Eid as a promotional campaign for their film.
