Believe it or not… a plate of vegetable noodles sold for a whopping Rs.50000 yesterday in Chennai! But the price was not for the noodles. It was shelled out for the 'star chef', who sacrificed his precious time to prepare the food amidst his hectic schedule. He is none other than the actor Maddy aka Madhavan!!
Olympia Technology Park, a multinational company, opened its new food court to the public yesterday.
Taking time out of his busy schedule, actor Madhavan inaugurated the 25,000 square feet food court, one of the biggest in the country. The food court is professionally managed by Planet Yumm, a leading restaurant of the city. Madhavan, the chief guest for the day, accepted cheerfully to prepare the food from the Wang's Kitchen and the food was auctioned to the public. Finally Ajith Kumar Chordia, Managing Director of Olympia Technology Park purchased a plate of noodles for a breathtaking Rs 50,000!
The income from this auction was donated to Banyan, a charity run for the aged and mentally retarded people in Chennai.
