Indians and their obsession with celebrities need no introduction. Come Diwali and you can spot tons of firecrackers in the local market named after celebrities. Now apart from firecrackers, desis have named food items in their menus after celebrities.
Here are nine food items off menus from across the country that are named after popular celebrities.
1. Kareena Kapoor Size-Zero Pizza
Bebo took the world by storm when she got to a size zero for Tashan. This pizza joint in Delhi went a step further and named a pizza after her. The Kareena Kapoor Size-Zero Pizza has a thin crust and is topped off with diced chicken, red chillies, baby corn, onions, and low-fat cheese.
