Actor Aamir Ali Turns Restaurateur With New Venture In Mumbai
Popular Indian television actor Aamir Ali, who is known for his work in telenovelas like FIR and Bhaskar Bharti, is adding yet another feather to his hat. The actor is all set to step foot in the hospitality industry with his new restaurant in Versova, Mumbai.
The actor who is still in the prepping stage of his new venture said, “It’s my first restaurant and will feature Indian cuisine. I always wanted to start my own restaurant, but never got around to doing it. So when this business opportunity came my way, I took it up. This is just the start.” Aamir said in an interview that he has been working on the venture for the past ten months and “didn’t want to start something for the heck of it”.
This is not the first time that a celebrity/actor has forayed into the restaurants business to up their income, however, Ali says that while money was an aspect it was not the only – and definitely not the most important – one. “I believe in exploring and applying my mind to new things.
“I am not doing this just for income, but because I want to expand my horizons. I am primarily an actor and I love acting, but I don’t want to be restricted to just that. I might even explore another avenue tomorrow”, said the actor who is currently “on a break” from acting.
So what can we expect from Aamir Ali’s restaurant? According to reports, the actor has teamed up with a celebrated chef, who will be at the helm of the restaurant’s functions. “I don’t know anything about running a restaurant, and I don’t want to quit acting to focus on the business”, the actor said admitting that, “I can’t cook at all, but I am a foodie and love to explore different cuisines. Everyone knows I don’t drink or smoke, but I love to eat out. My favourite cuisine is Indian — I love eating biryani, chicken, mutton, paneer and kebabs, but I judge any restaurant by its dal. If the dal is good, then it’s a hit.”
While further details of the venture are still unclear, given Aamir’s inclination towards good food, we can expect nothing but a great and tasteful spread at his restaurant as well!
