'Paan' named after Shah Rukh is doing brisk business in Varanasi!

New Delhi: When Shah Rukh Khan gyrated to 'jo lagaileba tu lipistik' on the streets of Varanasi, he made the entire nation wear dancing shoes. And to further add the local charm he took the big bite of 'maghai paan' and forced his Jab Harry Met Sejal co star Anushka Sharma also to take one. 

When the superstar danced to the original number of Amitabh Bachchan's 'Khaike Paan Banaraswala',little did SRK know that soon there will be 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. An astute businessman that Satish is, a brilliant idea hit him and very soon he was dishing out paan for all SRK fans priced at Rs 40! And the Shah Rukh Khan paan is doing a brisk business.

The superstar's visit has piqued the interest of customers, who are now thronging the shop to taste the 'paan' that SRK savoured.

"Jab Harry Met Sejal" which has a small-town charm beautifully woven in the plot of the story will hit theatres this Friday. News24Bureau
