MUMBAI, JULY 09 (INDIATIMES MOVIES) Not many know that actor Sammir Dattani, who is all anxious about his soon-to-release film Mukbiir , is a popular dude down South. He’s done Kannada films and his screen name there is Dhyaan. What and why we don’t know. Anyway, when Sam went to London recently, he understood the reach of films. When he entered a Lebanese restaurant on Edgware Road he was pleasantly surprised to be recognized by his South Indian fans who run the restaurant.
They were so happy to see him that the meal was on the house, obviously! Not only that, they also gave him a tour of the kitchen FOC. But what took Sammir aback was the poster of his Kannada film Amruthadhare on the kitchen wall. Sammir told us, "They made me sign the poster. It was bizarre to see my Kannada film poster up at a Lebanese restaurant in London, who would ever imagine that," he says, still pinching himself.
Well, let’s hope his lead role in and as Mukbiir offers him several on-the-house meals back home…and the world over. Bon Appetite, Sam!
