Indian politician Baba Siddiqui's star-studded annual Iftaar party is an event to look forward to in the Bollywood's social calendar. The grand Iftaar party this year was a Daawat for 300 guests. Chefs were flown to Mumbai from Hyderabad, Delhi and Lucknow.
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, the party started at around 7:30 pm at a sea facing five-star hotel in Bandra. Salim Khan and his son Arbaaz were among guests who arrived early. The father-son duo avoided all questions related to the Arbaaz's involvement in the betting scandal.
The guest list also included Suniel Shetty, Chunky Panday, Remo D'souza, Zayed Khan with father Sanjay, Richa Chadha, Mouni Roy and Madhur Bhandarkar with wife Renu.

Lulia Vantur was next to arrive all dressed up for the occasion in an anarkali, the Romanian singer-model was seen chatting with Shilpa Shetty and Manish Paul. Salman stayed on for half an hour. Anil Kapoor reportedly maintained a safe distance from the buffet to keep a check on his health.
