‘Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.’ These words from Elsa Schiaparelli hold a lot of value and most of us would accept it.
True to that, there are many who have entered the food business and prospered by filling the bellies. This is more so in the Tollywood circuit. Notable among them are Sharwanand who owns a place called Beenz, Nagarjuna with his N group, Kuchipudi Venkat with his chain and even Kona Venkat. In between, hero Tarun had started one for a while.
Now, another name is likely to join the list. It is that of director/producer Madhura Sreedhar. Sources close to him reveal he is also thinking of starting a food business with a very interesting concept. This would be launched both in India and US and the second phase would involve expanding the chain of hotels. Further details about it would be revealed soon.
