Bollywood celebrities receive a lot of adulation from their fans all around India and their popular characters and lines from films often inspire a lot of pop culture. Several food joints and hotspots across India take the idea of etching popularity of actors and the characters they play on screen in a form of a dish or a drink named after them. Previously, there have been dishes named after Sanjay Dutt served as Chicken Sanju Baba in a Mumbai restaurant, a cocktail served in Oman as Shoabtini dedicated to Akshay Kumar, a milkshake dedicated to Priyanka Chopra in the West of Hollywood and so on.
The latest entrant to join the bandwagon is actress Richa Chadha. A popular lounge in Mumbai has come up with a cocktail named after Richa’s popular character Bholi Punjaban from the ‘Fukrey’ franchise. The cocktail has been named as ‘Bholi Bhali Punjaban’. The drink is infused with litchi fruit juice. The drink will be offered to the patrons in a customised bottle with Bholi Punjaban’s image on the bottle. The drink is all set to launch this week in Mumbai and will be available exclusively in the lounge.
When asked about the drink by one of Indian journalist, Richa said that she was happy that her iconic character Bholi Punjaban will make people happy and she was extremely flattered. With the launch of a cocktail now Bholi is all set to become a permanent part of popular culture.
