Nowhere in Bollywood is Eid celebrated with more fervour than at Salman Khan’s.  Everybody is welcome for Eid at Salim Khan’s home Galaxy Apartments in Bandra, Mumbai.  All doors are thrown open and  the smell of  festive food emanates down to the streets of Bandra.

The  guests pour in all day long while Salim Saab’s three sons and  two daughters  gather together  to welcome the visitors who pour in all day. Sometimes they stay for just an hour. Others hang around for hours sometimes the whole day.

Sohail, the youngest of the Khan brothers and by far the  funniest and most down-to-earth, once recalled this Eid incident that made the family a little more alert though no less hospitable. Says Sohail, “There were guests once whom nobody from the family could recognize. We kept  presuming they were guests of one or the person in  our family. It was  only  hours later  that we got to know they are gatecrashers. But they had  left by then.”

Salman, Arbaaz and Sohail’s mother Salma is actually a  Hindu.  However for years she has  been supervising the sumptuous Eid menu at the Khans’ residence.“Nobody who visits the Khans’ residence  is allowed  to abstain from the  culinary orgy. Eid Day is Cheat Day for all frugal eaters, dieting  divas and anorexic types,” says  Salman’s buddy Sajid Nadiadwala.

Salman himself heaps  every  plate with second and third helpings.  Try saying no to him. Veteran  actress Asha Parekh, a  very close  friend  of Salman’s  second mother Helen says, “They are  very  good hosts. Every guests  is looked after personally by one  or the  other brother. No one goes  home  unfed.”

This Eid is special for Salman Khan as he awaits the release of his much-anticipated film Bharat co-starring Katrina Kaif. Watch out for the review on masala.com tomorrow.
