Mumbai, July 2 -- The auspicious month of Ramadan has begun, and news of what is being touted as Bollywood's first iftar party this season, has already trickled in.
However, this time, it isn't Salman Khan or Ekta Kapoor who are hosting the feast. Instead, Aditya Chopra is the one organising the get-together.
The producer also plans on launching the trailer of his next production at this event that is set to take place at his studio in Andheri (W) on July 7. "The trailer launch was going to be a regular event, but then, since it was coinciding with the holy month of Ramadan, he planned on turning it into an iftar party as well," says a source close to the production house.
Starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra, this film has been directed by Habib Faizal. It has been shot extensively in and around Lucknow and Hyderabad, and it revolves around the subject of food.
"Aditya thought it would be appropriate for its trailer to then be launched in this fashion. At the event, there will be a variety of delicacies including special iftari items," says the source. The event will be attended by the film's cast and crew, and select members of the media. The spokesperson from the production house confirmed the news.
