Angelina Jolie mystery solved


IT was


something of mystery when a leading daily newspaper reported that film star Angelina Jolie


had ordered a curry for herself and husband Brad Pitt to take to LA from a Surrey restaurant. However, Mr Rahman, the restaurant manager, believes he knows the answer: that it was Le Raj in Epsom Downs that was her chosen source. Rahman says he ‘strongly


believes’ that the Oscar-winning actress, who was in the UK to attend the G8 Summit in London, sent her bodyguard to fetch a curry from the restaurant which she could take back with her to the US. A large, blacked-out car pulled up outside the restaurant and a man came into the restaurant and placed a large order totaling more than £1,600. The order was for lamb bhuna, chicken korma, chicken tikka masala and Kingfisher beer, with a special request for the food to be securely wrapped. Rahman says, “We strongly


believe this order was for Angelina Jolie. The quantity of the food ordered and the requirement for the food to be specially packaged is not requested every day. We feel very honoured to serve our natural, honest food to celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.” n
