"Tropical oasis in the middle of the hustle bustle"
Mouni Roy launched her new restaurant Badmaash, located in Andheri, Mumbai.
While the restaurant opened on May 26, it had its grand launch on June 4, 2023.
At the star-studded bash, Mouni and her husband Suraj Nambiar were joined by Disha Patani, Ankita Lokhande, Tejasswi Prakash, Karan Kundrra and Giorgia Andriani, among others.
Badmaash offers an “authentic Bollywood vibe, Indian cuisine and a side of masaledar (spicy) concoctions”.
Describing its vibe, the restaurant said:
“Tropical oasis in the middle of the hustle bustle of Mumbai with progressive Indian cuisine…”
Photos and videos reveal a lush decor that has been inspired by tigers and tropical forests.
There is an abundance of plants, with greenery even dangling from the ceiling.
With unique light fixtures, Badmaash has a warm atmosphere.
The printed and rust-upholstered chairs, as well as regal green booths, provide the seating while glowing embellished lamps upholstered with red and orange fabric provide a subtle nod to the restaurant’s tropical inspiration.
These vibrant elements stand out against the earthy terracotta red.
Mouni Roy shared pictures of herself sitting at the bar and in front of the outdoor sign.
The neon yellow sign featured a tiger’s face.
She wore a printed dress and looked pleased with how her restaurant turned out.
For the launch event, Mouni opted for a figure-hugging purple dress while her husband kept things casual in a black T-shirt.
Thanking those who attended the event, Mouni wrote on Instagram:
“Launched into deliciousness. Thank you all for turning up last night and making the launch of Badmaash an absolute blast!
“Our hearts are overflowing with joy and gratitude for the incredible support.
“We promise to keep serving up mouthwatering flavours that will make your taste buds dance!”
“Join us on this delicious journey and let’s embrace the “badmaash” in all of us!”
Fans and fellow celebrities posted congratulatory messages.
The opening of Mouni’s restaurant comes after she made her debut at the Cannes Film Festival.
Before that, Mouni was part of The Entertainers Tour in the US with actors Akshay Kumar, Disha Patani, Sonam Bajwa, Nora Fatehi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and others.
On the film front, Mouni was last seen in Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva, where she played the antagonist Junoon.
