Ekta Kapoor to promote Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again by hosting Iftaar parties

The TV czarina intends to cash in on the Eid festival by providing food to the poor

We all know how religious Ekta Kapoor is. The successful film producer, who regularly visits Mumbai’s famous Siddhivinayak temple and undertakes several other religious activities, is planning to throw Iftaar parties during the holy month of Ramadan. Reason? The characters Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha play in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again are all Muslims and the film is releasing on August 8, which is Eid.

The idea is to offer Iftaar food to the poor at five dargahs in Mumbai. Interestingly, the starcast including Akshay, Sonakshi and Imran may attend these parties and support Ekta in this noble cause.

“The good fortune that has come my way has always encouraged me to pray before the release of my films. For Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again, which is among the biggest releases of the year during Ramadan, we will offer devotees Iftaar. This is my way of seeking blessings,” said Ms Kapoor. Hmm… may this festive season bring unparalleled box office success to Ekta Kapoor’s underworld drama.
