12 South Indian Actors and Their Favourite Foods

Fans of Rajinikanth will no doubt know what his favourite dish is, but that doesn’t mean that everybody does. Tamilian actors are popular and incredibly well known, but what they also love is their food. Like the rest of us, the actors and actresses we admire and respect are just human and that means that they get to eat and enjoy the best food they can get their hands on. Sure, they have to spend a lot of their time exercising and dieting for the roles they’re working on, but they are still able to find a moment to eat what they really love.

Bollywood stars have websites and fansites dedicated to their favourite cuisines, with recipes and videos on how to make it, so we’re going to give you a break down on what the actors and actresses in Kollywood love the most. It ranges from sambar rice to Hyderabadi biryani and mutton curry to thayir sadam (curd rice).
