Actor Christina Hendricks, whose family hails from Birmingham, says she would take a “pilgrimage” to visit the city’s famous ‘Balti Triangle.’ The humble British curry house is fast becoming a Hollywood hangout - actor Tom Cruise recently surprised staff at an Indian restaurant in St Alban’s by dropping by for a chicken tikka masala.
“I hear it’s not necessarily a relaxing weekend getaway. [But] oh, I love a curry. I’d take a pilgrimage just for that,” the Telegraph quoted Hendricks as saying. The actor developed a passion for Indian food when she lived in Britain in the late 1990s while working as a model. “I moved to London and I was blown away because they had this incredible Indian food,” she says.
