Varanasi: When superstar Shah Rukh Khan grooved to the song ‘Khaike Paan Banaraswala’ in 2011 film “Don 2” little did he know that seven years later he will have a ‘paan’ named after him.
During his recent trip to the city of temples to promote his new film “Jab Harry Met Sejal”, Shah Rukh visited 70-year-old ‘Tambulam Paan Shop’ along with his co-star Anushka Sharma and director Imtiaz Ali and tasted the famous ‘Banarasi paan’, much to the delight of shopkeeper, Satish Kumar.
Satish Kumar shares,”After Shahrukh Khan has come and eaten paan at my shop, I am getting non stop requests for exactly the paan that he ate. Not just from Varanasi, but I am getting calls from other cities also to parcel and send that paan. So I decided to have that paan separately in my menu. It’s the most expensive paan that I have on my list.”
Now Satish Kumar has named a special meetha paan after Shah Rukh Khan which will be available at his paan shop, for INR 35.
“Jab Harry Met Sejal” will hit theatres this Friday.
