Aamir Khan tastes 'litti chokha' at a roadside eatery
Superstar Aamir Khan had a taste of Bihar’s most favoured and famous delicacy, litti-chokha, at a roadside eatery near Sanjay Gandhi Zoological Park, sending onlookers and shutterbugs into a tizzy, official sources said.
Known as the Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood, Khan after attending a programme organised by a national Hindi daily, drove straight to gate no. 1 of the zoo where he had a taste of litti and Brinjal bharta, the sources said.
The owner of the dhaba, Santosh Kumar, was surprised to see Aamir Khan at his stall and wondered as to who had informed the superstar about his stall, added the sources.
There was a near stampede-like situation at the gate of the zoo with hundreds of onlookers and mediapersons trying to have a close glimpse of the Lagaan star, police said.
Aamir stayed at the stall for just ten minutes. He left the place in a huff without entertaining any query from the media, sources said.
Before leaving, Mr Perfectionist did not forget to pay the dhaba owner. “He paid `500 for four littis! I couldn’t believe that Aamir Khan had come to my dhaba…I’m so surprised and happy,” said Santosh Kumar, owner of the eatery. Santosh also said Aamir liked his litti-chokha. “My dhaba now has become famous!” he exulted.
Tight security arrangements were in place for Khan's visit, police said.
