Football fanatic Abhishek Bachchan was given a tremendous surprise when he visited popular London restaurant Chak89 earlier this month. The star of recently released movie Players was gifted a framed shirt, signed by his favourite football team Chelsea, by the owner of the restaurant F Khalid. Also a major fan of Chelsea, self made millionaire F Khalid was delighted to learn that Abhishek also supported the same team as him and arranged for the very expensive gift. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the Bachchan family and didn’t want Abhishek to leave empty handed. I’m really glad he liked the gift and enjoyed the food at Chak89, next time I will take him to watch a Chelsea match. He is a genuine fan of Chelsea football club and watches most of the matches said F Khalid.
Abhishek was clearly delighted to receive the collectors item and took time to discuss Chelsea football club with F Khalid. Abhishek met the British press at Chak89 at an event especially organised by Qatar based company KZ Entertainment before heading over to Cineworld Feltham to meet thousands of screaming fans. We always like to get fans and media closer to the biggest celebrities in the
world. The event and Chak89 and Cineworld enabled us to do that and it also gave us a chance to promote Indian cinema to audiences in the west. We hope to bring more stars from around the world to London,” explained Kaser Mehmood.
Abhishek is the latest in a long list of celebrities who have visited Chak89. Other A-listers who have visited the top restaurant include Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Vivek Oberoi, (actor) Imran Khan and Shah Rukh Khan along with a whole host of western mainstream celebrities. We are proud of the fact that so many big names have visited Chak89 and plan to bring more celebrities to the establishment so they can meet the real die hard fans.
