Baba Siddique’s Iftari 2024: A dive into the origin of this 35-year-old tradition


This tradition began right after ‘Eid Milan’ in 1989, where Mr.Siddique foresaw a harmonious coming together of like-minded individuals to unite in the capacity of one big family, beyond everybody’s respective religions. Year after year, the nation awaits to catch a glimpse of this incredible Iftaar dinner tradition, which brings together their favourite celebrities greeting and receiving each other in unity, kindling so much love, joy and respect that it was impossible for such a vision to not have manifested into Mr.Siddique’s legacy today.

The dinner is set to unfold in all its grandeur on March 24, 2024 at the Taj Lands End in Mumbai. After a grand star-studded celebration last year, this year’s event will be nothing short of spectacular either.. Apart from Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, icons and megastars such as Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty, Anil Kapoor, Emraan Hashmi, Katrina Kaif, Urmila Matondkar, Kapil Sharma, Bharti Singh, Karan Kundrra and Tejasswi Prakash, Shehnaaz Gill, Ankita Lokhande, Mouni Roy and many more illustrious personalities have graced the red carpet of this celebration.

2024’s Iftaar dinner party not only promises to be a celebration for a day where one simply witnesses celebrities alone. The true significance of this Iftaar lies in how wonderfully friends, family and various individuals from different walks of life come together to share their culture, tradition and joy together.

To this day, people continue to revisit their favourite memories from Mr.Siddique’s annual Iftaar dinners.
