Superstar Aamir Khan had a taste of the famous Bihari delicacy, litti chokha, at a dhaba near Sanjay Gandhi Zoological Park, sending onlookers and shutterbugs into a tizzy.
The 47-year-old actor met Ram Lakhan two and half years ago while travelling in disguise in North of India without any bodyguards to promote his film.
Aamir said his friend had travelled all the way from Varanasi in an unreserved coach to invite him and he was touched by this gesture, hence it was his duty to be a part of the celebrations.
Ram Lakhan, who took Aamir on a tour around Varanasi while he was disguised as an old man, developed a strong bond with the actor in three days.

Superstar Aamir Khan had a taste of the famous Bihari delicacy, litti chokha, at a dhaba near Sanjay Gandhi Zoological Park in Patna, sending onlookers and shutterbugs into a tizzy.
Mr Perfectionist Aamir drove straight to gate number 1 of the zoo, after attending a programme organised by a national Hindi daily, where he had some litti and baigan ka bharta.
There was a near stampede-like situation at the gate of the zoo with hundreds of onlookers and mediapersons trying to get a glimpse of the Lagaan actor, who is all set to make his TV debut with new show Satyamev Jayate.
Coming Up: Aamir set for TV debut.
Aamir Khan's debut television show Satyameva Jayate is all set to go on air on May 6, 2012 and the actor is finding it hard to hide his excitement.
Aamir unveiled the theme song of his show in Mumbai.
Composed by Ram Sampath, written by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Keerthi Sagathia, the promo song of Satyameva Jayate is a love song.
Talking about the song Aamir said, "Earlier, we were planning to compose a national song or like one anthem. Later, I realised, why am I doing this show? I have love in my heart for my country, like each Indian who love their country. Then we went with a romantic song. We thought, it should be a love song that reflects the love for my country and relate with each Indian."
Aamir sounded very confident about his new show. He said, "I cannot say I understand TV completely. I was earlier scared to go ahead with the project. I can only say I have made this show with complete honesty and without compromising on anything."
The actor also feels that TV is a very powerful medium and added: "I had to make complete use of this medium. This is a baby step towards it."
Aamir also said that the show will be dubbed in four southern languages - Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
Mr Perfectionist chose to wear a white shirt and green pants at the event.
