Ram Charan Teja, Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill were recently shooting in Thailand for Apoorva Lakhia’s remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s 1970s cop film. The cast and crew seemed to have had a particularly good time, savouring the local delicacies when not shooting.
Says a unit source, “The entire unit used to go out for dinner every single day. They would try the local cuisine at various restaurants after pack up. But one dish that would invariably find its place on the table was Khao Phad Kai Dow — egg-fried rice done the Thai way. Mahie got hooked on to the dish and would order it everyday without fail.”
Adds the source, “She would force director Apoorva Lakhia and producer Amit Mehra to eat it too everyday. Though there would be more exotic stuff available, Mahie would still insist on ordering her favorite dish!”
Mahie informs, “I love Thai food and developed a taste for this dish. Apoorva started teasing me as the brand ambassador of Thailand’s egg fried rice. He said that I should promote the dish in India as well.” Mahie, who is reprising Bindu’s iconic Mona Darling act in the remake, made sure that every unit member had at least a few spoons of it every night!
