Eid-l-Fitr aka Ramadan Eid 2021 is being celebrated in India today (May 14, 2021). On this day, Muslims break the fast in the holy month of Ramadan after seeing the crescent moon in the sky. Eid-ul-Fitr is the biggest festival in Islam, however, this time too, they will have to celebrate it in a low-key manner, all thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Well, the second wave of COVID-19 has engulfed the country, and due to several restrictions set by the government, people can't celebrate Eid on a large scale. Recently, Filmibeat had an exclusive interaction with Sasural Simar Ka actress Sana Sheikh and asked her about her Eid celebration amid the COVID-19 pandemic and much more.

When asked about her celebration plans for Eid 2021, Sana Sheikh said, "Like everyone, I am at home and will be at home on Eid as well, following the protocols. I feel I am blessed that I stay with my family. Keeping them and myself safe, praying for our country and the whole world."

During this COVID-19 time, relatives and friends can't meet each other on the occasion of Eid. Sana Sheikh said that these are testing times for all and added, "People can't meet each other even during festivals in the pandemic, we all are sailing in the same boat.
