Anushka Sharma was recently shooting in Bhopal for Sui Dhaga, which also stars Varun Dhawan and might have made a stop to pick up the delicious shikanji at Jain. We'd say that was a very wise decision, Anushka!Although, there are several shikanji sellers around town, none of them have achieved a cult status like Jain ki Shikanji. The refreshing drink is made by first pouring some sugar syrup in a glass, and then squeezing a fresh lemon on top of it. Then, come some crushed ice cubes and lemon soda, and to top it all off, a special Jain Shikanji masala is added to the drink. All the ingredients are then given some quick and robust shakes and voila! Your sweet and sour spiced shikanji is ready to free you from the punishing heat.
