The Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobaara team is leaving no stone un-turned in its promotion and in capturing the strong Muslim flavour of the film.
A grand iftaar party has been organised at a suburban Mumbai hotel on the 6th of August, for which invitiations are going out to the biggest industry and non-industry names.
Says a source, “Many top-level politicians and government officials are expected at the bash.”
“The iftaar daawat will be a huge celebration. Besides Ekta and Tusshar (Kapoor), Akshay (Kumar), Sonakshi (Sinha), Imran (Khan), Milan (Luthria, director), Shatruji (Shatrughan Sinha) and Jeetuji (Jeetendra) are extending personal invitations for the bash,” says Tanuj Garg, CEO, Balaji Motion Pictures.
As many as 400-500 guests are expected to attend the do, for which security has been beefed up.
A short qawwali performance by the Sabri Brothers has been planned and the décor will have an Arabic theme.
The food menu will comprise traditional Eid delicacies. “Dates will be served to break the roza. For dinner, there will be many Mughlai specialties served such as Handi Biryani and Kebabs,” adds the insider.
Coincidentally, Emraan Hashmi, who played the role of Shoaib in the original Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobaara, will also be present. A photo opp between the old and new Shoaibs will surely be among the highlights of the keenly awaited party!
