Former Mumbai politician Baba Siddique hosted his annual iftaar party after a break of two years on Sunday. Popular Bollywood and television stars walked the red carpet in the evening, but all eyes were on Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. While Salman entered and left the venue quite early after a brief meet-and-greet, Shah Rukh arrived late but was seen interacting with the guests. A video of him greeting Shehnaaz Gill warmly has been winning hearts on the internet. As the two were introduced to each other by the host, SRK shook hands with the Bigg Boss 13 star, following it with a warm hug. Shehnaaz seemed enamoured by his charm.
Dressed in a white salwar suit with silver embellishments, Shehnaaz looked beautiful as she smiled for the cameras on the red carpet. Shah Rukh, on the other hand, stuck to his ever-favourite black pathani, looking dapper as always.
As Shehnaaz Gill met the Bollywood star, her fans could not contain their excitement. As many felt ‘proud’ of her career, one of her fan pages wrote on Instagram, “Aawwww so sweet yrrr… Hey Zindagi main Yun feel ho Raha jese maine mil liya ho SRK SE..” Many even remembered the late Sidharth Shukla at the occasion and mentioned how happy he would’ve been seeing Shehnaaz meet his idol Shah Rukh Khan. “Sana ki succuss se sid kitna khush hota..wo to bb13 mein bhi us pr proud feel krta tha,” wrote a fan, while another added, “Meri to Khushi uchal uchal k bahar aa rai hai, samajh nai aa raha kya karoo so happy for her.” Others described them as the ‘Badshaah and the Queen’.

Baba Siddique is known for hosting a grand iftaar parties during the month of Ramadan every year.
