As the world celebrates Eid, Bollywood has always had a special place for the festival of Eid in its films. Eid is one of the most auspicious occasions for the Muslim community and Bollywood has always made sure to capture the essence of this festival on the big screen. From showcasing grand Eid celebrations to mesmerizing Eid songs, Bollywood has always found a way to depict the spirit of Eid in its films.
One of the most iconic Eid scenes in Bollywood is from the film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film tells the story of a young girl from Pakistan who gets separated from her family and is helped by an Indian man named Pawan (played by Salman Khan) to reunite with her family. The climax of the film takes place during Eid when Pawan takes the young girl to a mosque and helps her offer her prayers. The scene captures the grandeur of Eid celebrations and the spirit of communal harmony that the festival represents.
Another iconic Eid scene is from the film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. The film is a family drama that revolves around the lives of a wealthy family. The Eid scene in the film is a celebration of brotherhood and forgiveness. The scene features the entire family coming together to celebrate Eid and reconcile their differences. The scene captures the essence of the festival and the spirit of togetherness that it represents.
Another heartwarming Eid story is from the film Bajirao Mastani. The film tells the story of a Muslim woman who falls in love with a Hindu man during the 18th century. The film captures the spirit of love and sacrifice that is an integral part of the festival of Eid.
With Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif playing the key parts, Tees Maar Khan once again exemplifies the joyous nature of Eid. In 2010, the song Wallah Re Wallah, which had an Eid celebration backdrop, was the number-one hit. Additionally, the movie's star, Salman Khan, who made a cameo appearance, served as the event's guest of honour.
The momentous occasion of Eid serves as the setting for the entire romance drama's plot. Saawariya's plot revolves around a young woman who waits for her sweetheart to arrive on Eid. Additionally, a special song called Yoon Shabnami, which features the lead couple, attempts to capture the essence of the celebration by praising the moon's beauty. Ranbir and Sonam Kapoor play the key roles in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film.
As we celebrate Eid today, let us take a moment to appreciate the spirit of communal harmony and togetherness that is an integral part of the festival. Eid Mubarak!
