Shahid Afridi is set to launch Lala Darbar, a restaurant in Dubai, named after his famous nickname.
The legendary Pakistani all-rounder hails from the Afridi tribe of Pashtuns. The word Lala is put in front of names as a sign of respect amongst Pathans and other ethnicities often used when referring to an elder brother. Shahid Afridi also known as Boom Boom Afridi is also fondly referred to as ‘Lala,’ so it makes sense why the cricketer chose Lala to name his restaurant.
The former captain announced the good news on Instagram. We see Afridi gearing up for an exciting adventure in a video uploaded on the platform. He proceeds to slice a tomato dressed in a chef’s jacket and finally juggles with another while smiling at his audience.
Looks like Lala has some great plans for his upcoming venture. The restaurant’s logo is then revealed, featuring the signature Afridi pose, which is truly iconic. The video is captioned, “One step closer to the big announcement ~ Revealing Soon.”
He then teases his fan following, “Get ready to give your taste buds a mouth watering triple tarka! – Dubai”
The date of the opening of his restaurant has not been released as yet, nor are there any images of the restaurant up on social media pages of the restaurant. However, we are eager to see what Lala has in store for us.
The restaurant promises to offer authentic desi food to the residents of Dubai. Let’s hope one day, Lala launches his restaurant line locally too. Given his fan following in the country, it might just turn out to be a great success.
Here’s to wishing Lala all the very best for his future endeavors.
