Ranbir loves his pani puri

Mumbai, Jan 29 (IANS) He comes from a family of foodies, and no wonder Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor is one big foodie himself! The actor pleasantly surprised local people here when he ran to gorge on some street food in the middle of a recent shoot.

Ranbir, who made his silver debut in 2007 with "Saawariya", was spotted in the middle of a crowded street in Malad here. Stuck in a traffic jam, he instantly ran towards a stall to eat pani puri and gorged on it with chilled beverage.

The 30-year-old was in the midst of shooting a new advertisement for beverage brand Pepsi, which he endorses. He not only took the chaat vendor by surprise, but also a naive youngster at the stall, whose pani puri Ranbir snatched and ate.

The crowd around him was seen trying to keep a count of how many pani puris he ate while shooting for the ad film. The advertisement goes on air Feb 1.

The actor has been winning a string of awards for his portrayal of a deaf and mute guy in "Barfi!".
