Shah Rukh Khan’s love for Hyderabadi Cuisine

In 2011, Shah Rukh Khan was in Hyderabad for Don 2’s audio release and in a press meet, he had reminisced about his childhood spent in the city and revealed how he loved the Hyderabadi food made by his mother.

In an interview, he said, “I think I have a little Hyderabadi in me and I used to love Khatti Daal and Biryani and yeah Haleem also. My mother used to cook it for me and I have very fond memories of the city as even my summer holidays used to be spent in Hyderabad till my parents were alive. So I am very attached to the city.”

When asked what is the one dish he loves to dig into when in Hyderabad, he replied, “I mean, it’s a cliche to have Biryani here so I like the Biryani. You can’t beat the Biryani that you get here”
