Says SRK, "Hum logon ke liye sabse badi hoti hai jab humari film release hoti hai. I would really like to celebrate the day apart from the religious sentiments attached to it for all the good things happening around me. I will celebrate it with the whole team of my film. I will keep a party at home and we will all meet." He added that the media too was invited to attend and that he would be serving special Ramzan delicacies. "It will be a great honour for me if everyone joins me," says SRK.
Shahrukh has invited Salman Khan for the Iftaar party. It seems that after the ‘big hug’ between the two rival actors at Baba Siddique’s Iftaar party, Shahrukh Khan has finally decided to dump the hostility. After that party, Shahrukh had tweeted, “Finally u realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, becos there is so much more to the book than the page u were stuck on, (sic).”
The two actors had a fight five years ago at the birthday party of Katrina Kaif. Since then, they were not in talking terms. An invitation from Shahrukh tells a lot about his intention of breaking the ice between Salman and him. Only time will tell, if Sallu Bhai has accepted the invitation and whether he went for Shahrukh’s Iftaar party or not.
Shahrukh’s wife Gauri Khan will be looking into the preparations of the Iftaar party. She is known to be a good and warm host.
He also invited media for the party and said he would be serving special ramazan delicacies in his Iftaar party. Inviting media, Shahrukh said, “It will be a great honour for me if everyone joins me.”
