Sidharth is feeling Crabby!
Sidharth Malhotra, known to be a travel junkie, has been feeling crabby lately and he is frantically looking for his oyster! Wait! Before we get hysterically happy to delve into his personal life, let us clarify that Sidharth is an ardent sea food enthusiast and his recent visit to New Zealand as the ambassador of Tourism New Zealand for India has left him craving for authentic lip smacking fresh sea- food.
Sidharth was heard expressing, “Being a foodie and a travel junkie, I make it a very important point of my itinerary to experience the local culture wherever I go. During my expedition in New Zealand, I had the opportunity to visit an oyster farm, which was a first. Ever since I returned, my taste buds have been craving the flavoursome sea-food platters and not to forget the fresh oysters straight from the farm. I really wish I could just make a quick trip back for a lunch picnic alongside the breath-taking views of the New Zealand valleys”.
Sidharth is currently busy shooting for ‘Baar Baar Dekho’. He is soon planning to take some time out from his crazy schedule and pack his bags for another holiday in New Zealand.
