Peter doesn't eat in April. Grandfather does eat on Saturdays. Sounds like quite the dinner party.

Fun fact: शनिवार comes from शनि which is Hindi for Saturn, by using Greek astrology, similarly like the names of the day of the week in many other languages like English Saturday.

Is this sentence just random, or is Saturday a fasting day for some Indians?

Any day of the week can be a day of fasting ('उपवास का दिन' in Hindi) for certain Hindus depending on their region, sect and favourite deities.

I know there arent as many muslims in India vut its a similar deal for them because its not uncommon for muslims to fast one or two random days a week for health and religion

Well, there are about 200 million Muslims in India (third highest among all the world's countries) so your input is appreciated.
