Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who was in the Bihar capital on Saturday to promote his upcoming film “PK”, visited a roadside shop and enjoyed Bihari delicacy litti-chokha.
Aamir Khan told media that he enjoys the special taste of litti-chokha. “It is known for its unique taste. I love to eat litti-chokha.”
As news of Aamir Khan spread like wildfire, hundreds of people gathered at the shop. But they were disappointed as the actor had already left by then.
“I was overjoyed when Aamir Khan visited my shop and asked me to serve litti-chokha. He enjoyed its special rustic flavour and taste,” shopowner Bihari Rai said.
He said Aamir ate two pieces of litti-chokha. The actor had also visited Rai’s shop in 2012.
Rai said his shop became popular after Aamir Khan’s visit. “Many people come here to taste litti-chokha and ask what Aamir Khan ate,” he said.
In a bid to attract more people, Rai has put up big banners with photographs of Aamir’s visit to his shop and eating litti-chokha.
A billboard quotes Aamir as saying “litti ka jawab nahin” (litti is exceptional). A traditional baked food item, litti is made of wheat flour and sattu (roasted gram powder).
