UK restaurant names a dish after Shilpa Shetty

A restaurant in UK has named one of its dishes after Shilpa Shetty, after the Bollywood actress shared the recipe with it. Shilpa had gained global recognition after she participated and won the popular British reality show ‘Big Brother’ some years back.

A source close to the ‘Dahdkan’ actress was quoted as saying, “Shilpa dropped by at an Indian restaurant with her family during a recent visit. Towards the end of their meal, the owner invited her into the kitchen and introduced her to the head chef. She shared the traditional South Indian recipe for roasted fish which now features under their specials section. The dish is served along with a dessert, whose recipe was also shared by the actress with the restaurant.”

Shilpa herself maintains a fit body and healthy lifestyle and propagates healthy eating habits among people around as well. The stunning diva was quoted as saying, "It's always been my passion to encourage a fitter and healthier lifestyle. I think once you inculcate these habits at a young age, they'll stay with you for a lifetime. It was great interacting with the parents and exchanging notes on our children and what their diets include."

Some other Bollywood celebrities too have dishes and drinks named after them. An Italian pizza joint had named one after Kareena Kapoor during her ‘Tashan’ days. The pizza was called ‘Kareena Kapoor Size-Zero Pizza’. Priyanka Chopra and Mallika Sherawat have milkshakes named after them in milkshake bar Millions of Milkshakes.
