Believe it or not, this Gujju but Mumbai bred damsel who is raking up the Tollywood and Kollywood with her sensuous and glamour roles is very fond of Idli-sambar which explains to her extra calories. On the Madras day celebrations Hansika Motwani, the popular social media rage - Ice bucket girl says Even before her first visit to Chennai, she was always called 'idli wali' in school and college. 'My love for idli sambar began when I was a child'.
Listen to her words about Chennai and its food. Since I began shooting in Chennai, I realised there was so much more to Tamil Nadu than their yummy food.. My favourite line in Tamil is "Yennaku romba pasikidhu" (means: I am very hungry). The food here makes you say that often.
Chennai is my home, I do have a house in Mumbai though. On Madras Day - I'd like to say, let us all celebrate Chennai. There is no city as vibrant and so attached to culture and tradition, like Chennai, she says.
