The Shape Of You singer Ed Sheeran and his fans had a perfect gig at his concert in Mumbai on Sunday (November 19). Wait, this was not the end of Ed Sheeran's Mumbai trip. After a great party with the Bollywoodwallahs, hosted by Farah Khan, Ed explored India's culinary treats and it did make the singer Happier. When in India, how can someone miss our lip-smacking delicacies? Yes, we are talking about tempting chicken tikka and chhole bhature, which Ed had after his fantastic event at the Jio Gardens. A source told mid-day: "Ed retreated to his hotel after the show. Having tasted Indian fare at Farah's party, he was keen to try out more delicacies. He gorged on dishes like paneer bhurji, garlic naan, chhole bhature, biryani and chicken tikka."

Ed's fans went crazy at the concert, where the singer sang some of his hit songs like A Team and Don't. What attracted the audience most was the 26-year-old singer's blue kurta (and we can't agree more), which was inspired by the cover of his Divide album. Well, Ed's blue kurta (with the name of his album written in Hindi at the back) has an interesting story behind it.

The eye-catching dupion silk blue kurta was designed and gifted to Ed Sheeran by Farzana Cama Balpande, an entrepreneur associated with the concert. The sheerios (as Ed's fans call themselves) instantly fell in love with Ed in his Indian attire.

Ed Sheeran also received a personalised gift hamper that brought him a little closer to the Indian culture. The hamper included a beautiful flute, Ed Sheeran's favourite gingerbread cookies, Kolhapuri chappals, a postcard and a mug among many other things.

Mid-day also reports that Ed, who left for Dubai yesterday, loved the kurta so much that he took it along.

Ed Sheeran also took out time to interact with some of his fans. "He met three physically challenged teenagers, who had dropped in at his hotel," a source told mid-day.

Comments
Ed Sheeran's Mumbai concert was a part of his Divide tour. The singer arrived in India on Friday and spent Saturday night partying at Farah Khan's home with her Bollywood friends including Shah Rukh Khan, Malaika Arora, Shahid Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor among others.

We hope Ed returns to India soon.
