In an exclusive interview with Curly Tales, Nawazuddin Siddiqui shared that he survived years with a cup of tea and Parle-G. He did not have that much money to spend on breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And hence tea and Parle-G was his meal three times every day. He continued this for almost 1-1.5 years. He shared in the ‘Eat-O-Meter’ round that his favourite biscuit is also Parle-G. When our host gave the Bollywood actor the option to choose between chai-biscuit and coffee-muffin, he of course chose chai-biscuit.
