Johnny Depp is surely living it up after recently winning the court battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard in a defamation lawsuit. The Hollywood star was recently spotted dining at an Indian restaurant in Birmingham, England.
If you’re wondering what’s so special about having dinner at a restaurant … Well, in Depp’s case, it’s the bill, which came up to $60,000 (around Rs 46.62 lakh).
According to BirminghamLive’s report, the actor met his friends including Jeff Beck, an English musician who is at the Birmingham leg of his tour. Depp booked the whole restaurant to himself for a few hours so that he could meet his friends and have some privacy.
The 58-year-old actor showed up at the Indian restaurant with 20 other friends. The restaurant’s manager informed the media that Depp was “humble and down to earth” and also spent time chatting with the staff and clicking pictures with them and their families.
The party devoured dry rice platters with appetisers such as chicken tikka masala, shish kebabs, king prawn starters. Depp and his friends also enjoyed some lamb curry with Indian bread, reports said.
‘The Tourist’ star also ordered the most expensive cocktail on the menu called ‘The Jewel of Varanasi’ which includes 500 Hennessy Paradis Imperial, Grand Marnier, Quail Egg Whites, seeds from a Vanilla Pod, Lemongrass Syrup, 24ct Gold Leaf and Edible Flowers and is served after 24 hours of notice as the drink is listed as a ‘premium drink’.
Though the manager didn’t reveal the actual bill, it is being reported that it was well over five figures in dollars.
“We made more money from Depp’s visit than we did from our busiest night of the week, which is a Saturday when we have around 400 diners,” Mohammed Hussain, operations director of Varanasi, told Daily Mail.
The restaurant later took to their official Facebook account and shared pictures from Sunday night.
“The most talked about person on the planet right now joined us for dinner last night ! We had the greatest of pleasure to be in the presence of Johnny Depp @johnnydepp and Jeff Becks @jeffbeckofficial !
