The Shangri-La Bar in Oman has introduced the ‘Shoaibitini’, inspired by Akshay Kumar’s character of Shoaib in Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara.
“We have been privileged to have Mr Akshay Kumar enact a scene in the film in The Long Bar,” said the hotel’s resident manager.
“This drink that has been created by our beverages manager is dedicated to him and the entire Balaji team. The rich, robust and complex taste of the main ingredient Vodka Absolut Vanilla personifies the strong and rugged Shoaib.
“The sweet taste of Crème de Cacao touches on his soft, romantic side. While Tia Maria adds to the rich flavour of this special drink.”
Kumar is joined by Imran Khan (Aslam), Sonakshi Sinha (Jasmine) and Sonali Bendre (Mumtaz) in the Bollywood gangster sequel.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara releases August 15.
