Jab Harry Met Sejal Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has a Banarasi Meetha Paan named after him.
The paan which costs Rs 35 is being sold at the same shop Shah Rukh Khan had visited during his visit to the spiritual city of India, Banaras. He had gone for promotions of Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Imtiaz Ali had made a stop at a local betel leaf vendor’s shop to taste the flavour the city of Banaras had to offer in the form of ‘Banarasi Meetha Paan’. The trio were pleasantly surprised to learn that the shop was a 70-year-old shop, named ‘Tambulam Paan shop’. They then savored on ‘chilled meetha paan’ from the age old vendor, Satish Kumar
Shah Rukh Khan personally thanked the vendor and there was no limit to the vendor’s exultation after he met Shah Rukh Khan, Imtiaz Ali and Anushka Sharma.
As soon as Shah Rukh Khan left from the shop, there was a huge flock of people asking Satish Kumar, for the Meetha Paan that Shah Rukh Khan savored. There was immense alacrity amongst the people for the Meetha Paan.
Every passerby was telling Satish Kumar to make him the same Meetha Paan which Shah Rukh Khan had eaten.
Satish Kumar shares,”After Shah Rukh 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.
Presented by Red Chillies Entertainment, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is directed by Imtiaz Ali. The film has released today.
