Shilpa Shetty To Open Chain Of Readymade Meals In Britain
After trying her hands in cricket and spas Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is now planning to open a chain of readymade meals in Britain.
"It gives me great pleasure to announce that Raj Kundra (fiance) and me have invested with the V8 Gourmet Group... Got to acknowledge the fact that Indian food is much enjoyed (chicken tikka masala becoming the nation's favourite) and has a huge market in Britain”, Shilpa Shetty said.
The actress added, “This was only a sign for us to think it right to invest and procure a 33 percent stake in V8 that encompasses Vama, The Bombay Bicycle Club and Tiffinbites. We also do airline catering and the newest plan is to introduce readymade Indian meals that will be under 10 percent fat”.
The actress has massive plans to extend her chain of restaurants with celebrity chef Andy Varma.
"Hoping to launch this line of readymade meals after Christmas in Britain. It's great to know that our restaurants are frequently visited and appreciated by A-list clientele like Brad Pitt, Woody Allen, Mick Jagger, His Highness King Abdullah of Jordan, Bryan Adams, Rowan Atkinson and Uma Thurman and even our very own Amitabh Bachchan and Saif Ali Khan”, the actress revealed.
"We will be branching out to Dubai and Jordan by end of this year, and many more in years to come”, she added.
Shilpa Shetty has also dismissed the rumours that her food chain was in remembrance of late British reality TV star Jade Goody.
Shilpa Shetty said, "I would also like to clarify all those reports and rumours about it (chain) being in honour of Jade Goody is completely and utterly baseless... you've heard this from me, and that's what counts”.
