Deepika Padukone seems to be a hot favourite for restaurant owners to name their signature dishes. After the actress shared a picture of a restaurant menu in Austin, USA featuring her name as a dosa, turns out there’s also a parantha thali named after her.
One of her followers reacted to the ‘Padmaavat’ star’s latest Twitter post by revealing that her name has made it to another food menu as ‘Deepika Padukone Parantha Thali’ at a restaurant, closer home, in Pune.
The dish, which features a ‘triranga’ vegetable dish, Dal Makhani, Rajma Chole, sweet dish, raita, salad, pickle and butter, is priced at Rs 600. The actress was surprised and responded with the arms and laughing smileys to the revelation.
But what also caught our attention is the other well-known names that are also a part of the menu. The Sachin Tendulkar, Akshay Kumar and Sunny Deol Parantha Thalis come cheaper at Rs 450. Even the Yuvraj Singh Parantha Thali is priced the same as the Deepika's.
The restaurant has a patriotic flavour, with a tricolour vegetable dish and tricolour menu and one of India’s freedom fighters, Bhagat Singh also finds his name in it.
Even a mythological figure Kumbhakaran is in the menu, but a lot more expensive at Rs 1400. Singer-musician Yo Yo Honey Singh parantha thali also costs four figures and is priced at Rs 1100.
Late actor-wrestler Dara Singh rightly gets ‘India’s biggest parantha’ and that thali is priced at a whopping Rs 2400.
The other two parantha thalis for which you need to shell out the same amount, four times as much as 'Deepika Padukone Parantha Thali', have film connections, the ‘Baahubali Parantha Thali’ and ‘Madhuri Dixit Parantha Thali’. While the former’s grand scale and record-breaking box office collections could be behind its highest price, we feel the restaurant owner might be a fan of the ‘Dhak Dhak’ girl.
