If you’re among those who frequent Sagar Chinese in Juhu, keep an eye out for Kartik Aaryan. He often wraps up a hectic day of shoot with a bowl of burnt garlic fried rice and veg Manchurian from the suburban restaurant. So much so that the restaurant’s owner has now named the dishes ‘Kartik Aaryan Special’. Indian Idol 13 contestant Senjuti Das, an ardent fan of the actor, knows this all too well. On Monday, as Shehzada actors Aaryan and Kriti Sanon shot for an episode of the reality show, the contestant surprised him by offering his signature dish from the joint.

A source reveals that the development happened after Das’s performance, where she sang Deewani mastani. While judges Himesh Reshammiya and Vishal Dadlani appreciated her act, Aaryan termed it a “shehzada performance”. The source adds, “The conversation then veered towards street food, and Kartik said he is a big fan of it. To his surprise, Senjuti then presented him his favourite Chinese dishes from his go-to eatery. She said that she was aware that he often goes there. So, she would frequently visit the joint, hoping to meet him.”

The actor was stumped by the contestant’s thoughtful gesture. As he fed her a bite of the dishes, Aaryan said that he has been a regular at the eatery since his struggling days. “Even now, whenever my shoot wraps up post 12 am, I go to the restaurant [for dinner]. The owner has named a special dish after me,” he said. Last year, a video of him sitting on the bonnet of his luxury car outside the popular food joint and enjoying his meal went viral.
