In a conversation with the Hindustan Times, Shama Sikander mentioned how Eid had been an integral part of her life since childhood. This time, it is more special for the newly married actress because she has her hubby, James, celebrating her culture. Mentioning how she has experienced a shift in her behaviour post-marriage, Shama shared a funny anecdote and said:

"Eid has always been an integral part of my life since childhood. I used to fast a lot before, and look forward to getting eidi. That is what children want! This time, because obviously it's my first after wedding, so we are excited to host our loved ones. This time though, I am looking forward to giving eidi, it's a total shift."


Further, in the conversation, the 40-year-old actress mentioned that Eid's celebration would begin in the morning with her family and close ones, followed by get-togethers till the evening with friends. Sharing about her mother she said her mother cooks delicious foods on Eid while she is more of an eater. Shama can be quoted as saying:

"We will organise a lunch. Everybody wakes up early in the morning, go and do Eid prayers, and open the fast after it. My mom and my whole family cook delicious delicacies, and then come to my house. I love the kebabs. The one thing I never fail to do on every Eid is eating sheer qorma and biryani! I don't prepare. I don't cook, that isn't something I do. I don't enjoy it so much, I am more of an eater."

In the same interview, Shama Sikander was asked if her husband, James has also shown equal interest in celebrating Indian traditions. To this, she revealed that they do not follow rituals. Shama can be quoted as saying:

"We both were very religious at one point, now are totally into spirituality. It's not like we don't want to, but it just doesn't come into our natural being. We respect everybody who does it, goes for iftar. We have iftar at our home as well. Both of us are hence spiritual, we don't do any religious activities anymore. It just happened, it was a conscious decision."


Here's wishing a happy Eid to Shama and James!
