The actor was in for a surprise when he managed to get his favourite cuisine in Lucknow

Saif Ali Khan is known for his penchant for Nawabi food and while shooting in Lucknow for Bullett Raja with Sonakshi Sinha, Saif had to make do with whatever was available on sets. But his joys knew no bounds when he got his favorite biryani on the sets.

What we hear from the sets is that the few locals were so happy to have the team shooting in their locality that one day they went out of their way and brought home cooked food for the entire crew.

A source close to the team said, “We have been shooting in Lucknow since quite a long time now and we were all feeling very homesick. It was that one day a group of ladies came to Saif and offered him some homemade mutton Biryani. Saif loved it so much that he couldn’t stop praising the Biryani. And the next day we saw huge dabba’s filled with home cooked Biryani not only for Saif but for the entire team.”

‘It was really very sweet of those ladies that they treated us with such amazing and yummy food. It was almost feasts of sorts for us that day. We couldn’t thank them enough for the lovely food” added the source.

Well, with such hospitable localites around, we are sure that the Nawab and the crew did not miss their homes that much. Bullett Raja which is back dropped against a mafia based in Uttar Pradesh and promises to be a complete action packed entertainer.
