Seems Strange to hear but its really true as Delhi-6 Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has decided to gift 51 variety of Pickles to Abhishek Bachhan as Birthday present on Feb 5.
Thats a sweet gesture from Omprakash Mehra to Aby Baby as the former was not able to decide what to gift. He then came up with the unique idea of gifting the actor 51 different kinds of pickles! Why pickles? “During the making of Delhi 6, I realised that Abhishek has a taste for Indian food. He used to gorge on local delicacies.
That’s how this came to my mind,” explains Mehra, who ordered the pickles from Khadi Bauli, India’s biggest achaar market. “They will be packed in traditional earthen pots and sent to him,” adds Mehra.
Last year, Abhishek was away in Jaipur for the shoot of this film. However, this year after wrapping up his Raavan schedule, the actor is scheduled to visit US for the promotion of this film.
Delhi-6 is all set to hit the box-office on Feb 20 later this month. The movie is reportedly based on Mehra’s growing up years in Chandni Chowk area of Old Delhi. The film will be Mehra’s third directorial venture after critically acclaimed Aks and the immensely successful Rang De Basanti.
Lets hope the gift make wonders for Abhishek & probably next time come up with some spicy roles.
