Today's Hindu online's supplement section features an article on happening events in Chennai. Since, this event is popular because of my favorite hero-here goes today's blog on Maddie and his dosa making skills.
The Place: Planet Yumm in Ascendas Park, along the IT corridor, Chennai
The Occasion: Grand opening by Actor Madhavan and cricketers Balaji and Robin Singh
The Cause: Madhavan declaring that he would secure Rs. 2 lakhs out of his dosa making event to donate to The Banyan, a home run by actress Revathi as a non-profit institution for mentally ill and destitute women.
The Gala Event:
Madhavan draped in his Nala Damayanthi style chef apron plays the role of a Palimar dosa chef. He starts out by making one dosa, which he improvises to dosa 2, watched in eager anticipation by a crowd of his women fans. He keeps working on his dosas with rapt concentration, furrowed brows by adding ghee on the edges and tossing them deftly onto their crisp sides once they are done.
Then, the dosas are put up for auction. The pair of dosas opened for Rs.500 and while the crowd booed, Maddie yelled his price of Rs.2000. The auction kept mounting as women started to plunge in to overbid Maddie's price till it went upto Rs.12,000. Maddie who is now all rolled up into auctioning himself, quotes a firm Rs.20,000 for his hand made dosas. A bidder yelled Rs.25,000 and Maddie surprises everyone by announcing that he'd still add his 20,000 bucks.
Imagine- the price of 2 cold dosas now Rs.45,000 and sure Madhavan does melt hearts as well ashe makes melty dosas ends the applause.
The auction continued......Maddie then proceeded to make 2 cups of steaming mochas and sold it for Rs.25,000 to two girls who proudly told a stunned Maddie that they are the ones paying for this coffee.
Looks like the auction went on till a lot more money was collected and all credit goes to Madhavan.
Is this Maddie Madness at its fullest?
Hmmm..(sighing..................wish i was there to watch my favourite hero at this event)
Have a nice evening!!!
