Mel Gibson visits Glasgow’s curry house after arriving in Scotland
Braveheart star Mel Gibson enjoyed a curry on his first visit to Scotland in almost 30 years.
After arriving at Glasgow Airport in a private jet from Budapest, he headed straight for Mr Singh near Charing Cross.
The Indian restaurant is popular with visiting celebrities and former Rangers players and has its own exclusive VIP area.
On his arrival with his entourage, the Australian was welcomed by owner Satty Singh.
It’s unclear what Gibson had to eat, but the restaurant specializes in Indian versions of Scottish dishes, including haggis pakora and chopped curry and tatties.
Gibson was seen laughing and hugging a staff member on the street.
Last night, Satty confirmed that Gibson dined at his restaurant on Friday.
But he declined to elaborate on the actor’s night out.
It is understood, however, that the reservation was made at short notice.
Gibson, who played William Wallace in the hit film, has not been to Scotland since the film premiered at Stirling Castle in 1995.
The 66-year-old is taking part in a live show tonight in Glasgow at the city’s DoubleTree by Hilton hotel next to Glasgow Central Station called ‘Experience with Mel Gibson’.
The black-tie dinner costs over £100 per ticket, plus £300 to take a picture with the Hollywood star.
The organizers promised that he would share untold stories as part of the unlimited-access show.
Braveheart grossed over £200m at the box office and won five Oscars, including Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Picture.
