Mumbai had received its first official rains of the season last Sunday and, while traffic jams turned life turtle, the city’s rich and famous were awaiting entry to Bandra’s Taj Lands End. From the entrance of the five-star closest to film star Shah Rukh Khan’s bungalow, Mannat, to beyond the lobby area, a line of fancy cars waited bumper to bumper for their turn to drop off their
well-heeled passengers till the red carpet.As the press photographers, cornered to a zone behind a metal barricade, clicked furiously, journalists asked, “What are you wearing tonight?” Former Bandra MLA Baba Siddique and son Zeeshan allowed sufficient press time, before whisking their guests away from the red carpet. Press, a public relations team, rumoured mobile jammers to ensure that photographs and videos weren’t leaked during the event, multi-layered security and an equal number of men and women in khaki outside the Taj gates stood ready for a possible rescue op.
Siddique’s iftar parties are as old as his association with Bandra, and the Congress Party. The Bandra Boy, as he calls himself, won’t reveal his age. One can presume that he is in his 50s, like his friend, actor Salman Khan, who he refers to as buddy. He does say that he studied at St Anne’s School (while Khan went to St Stanislaus) and graduated from MMK College. He started as a Congress karyakarta and was close to the then MP from the area, actor Sunil Dutt. He was voted to the Mumbai legislative council, becoming a corporator in 1992 and 1997, and became an MLA in 1999. He was later voted again to the seat in 2004 and 2009.
Born Ziauddin, Baba, one can say, is just following in the footsteps of his mentor, Dutt, who was also known for his iftar parties, seen as a Congress strategy to maintain ties with its Muslim voter base.
But, even away from the flashbulbs, Siddique admits to a love of entertaining people. The iftar is just a public extension of that passion. Even so, it’s not a recent phenomenon. “I have been holding Eid-milans since the 1980s,” he says, referring to the breaking of the final fast before Eid. “Phir woh bandh ho gaya. The iftar parties have been held for a while now.” Son Zeeshan, who joined the Youth Congress even as he pursued a degree in global management at London’s Regent’s University, says the iftar shifted to its current venue six years ago. Before that, it used to be held at Mehboob Studios and then at Sheesha Sky Lounge on Linking Road.
Yet, till 2013, although it got regular attendance from the Khans of Bollywood, the Siddique iftar was just another event hosted by a politician.
What changed is the momentous embrace between actors Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, who until then had been nursing a feud after a spat at the latter’s former girlfriend, Katrina Kaif’s birthday party. As they say, history was made on July 21, 2013. In his salmon-coloured tee, Salman tapped the pony-tailed SRK who turned from his plate and gave his once-friend a hug. The picture spoke for a thousand headlines and allowed for many bytes over the few weeks. What it also did, was also propel the annual Siddique affair into a must-watch event on the city’s social calendar.
The hug repeated itself the next year as well.
Though the two stars couldn’t come together in 2015, it still created its share of headlines in the glossies — there was the picture shot of Siddique Sr handing over an invite personally to SRK, and a list of who came and sat next to whom.
It was also the first time that women were invited.
“Last year, we threw the event open to women and families after Reshma Shetty (Salman Khan’s manager), Salman and baby (Salman’s sister, Alvira) said we should do so,” Baba adds.
The slow increase in the number of guests means that the venue is bursting at its seams. Zeeshan, who will turn 24 this year, says that for the last two years the iftar moved from the ballroom at the Taj to the grounds where a German-made tent, specially bought since it is water- fire- and wind-resistant, was pitched over the last three weeks. While the press and photographers were allowed entry in the seating area, now cameras were restricted to the red-carpet zone.
He laughs when we ask if the number of guests who attended were 250 or more. “More like 1,500. It’s 300 more than last year.”
This year, to ensure that there were no gatecrashers, invitees were sent a swipe card along with the invite which they had to
drop in at the entrance. Not that this applied to the better-known guests.
Typically, says Zeeshan, preparations for the big bash begin two months before the event. While formal invites are sent only two weeks prior to the slated .Salman Khan at Baba Siddiqui Iftar Party with Bollywood Celebrities bollywood news latest news entertainment
