Hollywood Loves Indian Food! Here are few Hollywood celebrities who have admitted their love for Indian Food
ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT
In one of the pre-BAFTA parties, the couple was seen heading straight to the Indian food counters. In an interview to the Times of India, Pitt went on about his love for Indian food, especially, chicken masala, dal, and naan. “Ange and I do visit Indian restaurants in the US whenever we get time. Even our kids are fond of Indian food,” he had said.
Her famous Indian food coma took Hollywood by storm. The singer ate hot curries thrice a day for a month and stopped only when her managers intervened. A die-hard fan of chicken lababdar, Gaga reportedly is a devotee of spicy curries. At a time when she was losing weight for one of her music videos, she had to give up eating curries for a while. “The day I was done with diet, I was back to eating chicken butter masala for a while,” she said in her TV interview.
She loves feasting on rice, chappati, aloo-gobi and kadhai paneer. In fact, while shooting for the film Eat Pray Love, the star took everyone by surprise with her love for this cuisine. Julia is known to be very experimental when it comes to food, but it was in India that she gave her taste buds a plethora of experiences.
His love for Indian food had once landed him in a soup. While shooting for All You Need is Kill in London, Cruise had one of his cravings for Indian lobster and chicken tikka. So, he went to the closest Indian restaurant and ate to his heart’s content.
He received a bill worth 220.85 pounds which he was unable to pay because he was carrying only dollars and the hotel did not accept his card. One of his co-stars had to come to rescue the star from the situation.
In one of her interviews last year, she revealed that she has learnt to satisfy her carb craving while dieting by eating south Indian food. “On my visit to India, I had learnt how idlis could help you in losing weight and also take care of your carb cravings. I love Indian food because of their magical aroma. I distinctly like the smell of fresh coriander in the curries,” she had said.
Her undying love for Afghani chicken and mutton masala has seen her hopping restaurants in India. Interestingly, Shakira was introduced to Indian food by her partner, Spanish footballer, Gerard Pique.
The couple is said to gorge on goat pichoutas and chicken tikkas on their outings together. While her partner stays away from desserts, Shakira is reportedly fond of rasmalai and gajar ka halwa.
