The veteran scriptwriter also said that this year no special delicacies were made to mark the festival. Prior to the lockdown, Salman was at his farmhouse and ever since then, he has been self-isolating himself along with his few close friends there.

While Salman’s family didn’t celebrate Eid the way they used to, but the actor made sure to make the festival special for his fans by releasing his song ‘Bhai Bhai’. He even reached out to around 5000 families and distributed Eid food kit amongst them.
