Seasoned campaigners, Rakhi Tandon and Sushmita Mukherjee had the taste of the best of Gujarati cuisine and savouries in their recent trip to the place for the promotional campaign of their &TV show, Gangaa (Sphere Origins).
Well, the ladies declared the day as the ‘Cheat Day’, as their usually well-kept diet regime went for a toss.
It so happened that the two of them got treated in a ‘royal’ manner from the moment they boarded the plane to Gujarat. And when they landed at their destination, they were hounded by media as well as the localites.
And the best part for & TV’s Kanta Dadi and Prabha Mami (the character they play in Gangaa), was that whoever they met on the day, gifted them with a food parcel.
Wow! This must have been mouth-watering indeed!
The result of the outing was that the ladies were so exhausted and full in the tummy that they had to skip the very thought of food for the next few days to feel better.
When contacted, Rakhi told us, “Yes, it was a superb mind-boggling hospitality that we received in Gujarat. We were given so many food dabbas, that we threw out the term ‘strict diet’ from our dictionary for a day. We hogged on to every possible Gujarati dish, and must have eaten all the sweets made in the place (smiles).”
Rakhi continued to say, “By the time we finished our press conferences and were ready to board our flight back to Mumbai, we so wished that we were craned off from the place we were sitting into our cars. We could not stop holding on to our stomachs at the end of the day.”
Rakhi could not stop laughing, recollecting the manner in which they ate, ate an ate for a day.
“Well, I did not go near food for the next 2 days, and lived on nimbu pani,” she averred.
Looks like the ladies did really enjoy their ‘yummy’ food feast!!
