A meetha paan in Varanasi named after Shah Rukh Khan

SRK had recently stopped by a paan shop in Varanasi while promoting his film Jab Harry Met Sejal.


Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is a big box office draw and anything associated with him can set the cash registers ringing. And that is what a Varanasi paan shop owner did. He has named a 'paan' after the uncrowned 'King of Romance' of Bollywood.

Tamboolam Paan Shop owner Satish Kumar told the media that recently Shah Rukh Khan and his Jab Harry met Sejal co-star Anushka Sharma dropped by at his shop during a promotional tour, and since then his customers and others were curious to know which 'paan' was savoured by the super star.

Satish said he had since named a 'meetha paan' as 'Shah Rukh Paan' with the usual ingradients. 

SRK has earlier reprised the immensely popular 'Khai ke paan Banaras wala' for the remake of movie Don, originally starring Amitabh Bachchan in the 1970s.
