There's something cooking between Shah Rukh Khan and his former co-star Shilpa Shetty — and the whole unit of Ra.Oneis just grinning with delight, says a media report.
Shah Rukh Khan is all set for the London schedule of his ambitious project Ra.One.
With shooting to start there in the first week of July, all logistic arrangements are being given the once-over to make sure everything is in place when the unit finally arrives in the city.
With food being such an integral part of the any Indian outing overseas, a very special arrangement has been put in place for the cast and crew.
The meals for the unit — all authentically Indian stuff — will be delivered on the sets by a chain of restaurants owned by Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra in London.
Incidentally, the chain has as many as 15 restaurants and 12 takeaway joints spread over London.
SRK's production house has assigned them the entire responsibility of feeding the unit during its stay there.
A source said, “Shilpa and Shah Rukh have been great friends since Shilpa made her debut in Baazigar (1993).
Though they never worked together after that, Shilpa made time for the title song of SRK's Om Shanti Om. They have also been interacting quite regularly during the IPL matches, because they are both stakeholders in different teams.
During one particular match, Shilpa mentioned to him that she was going to get more involved in the chain of restaurants in London owned by her husband. SRK promptly said that he would come and visit them whenever he was in London.
When the London schedule of Ra.One was being planned, Shilpa was surprised to get a call from a production person asking for a contact number in London to finalise a deal for food for the entire unit. So, now everyone on the Ra.One team is looking forward to some good Indian food from Shilpa's restaurants.
Shilpa herself can't stop talking about SRK and how he not only remembered that conversation, he came good on his promise.
Shilpa Shetty's spokesperson confirmed, “Yes, Shilpa's restaurants would be supplying food to the Ra.One unit and chicken curry, made famous by Shilpa during her Big Brother stay, will definitely be on the menu.”
