Actor Johnny Depp reportedly ‘celebrated’ the verdict of his court battle against ex-wife Amber Heard with a curry dinner. The actor reportedly spent $62,000 (Rs 48.1 lakh) for a special dinner with friends at an Indian restaurant in Birmingham, England on Sunday.
A New York Post article said Depp indulged in “authentic Indian cuisine”, cocktails and rosé champagne at an Indian restaurant called Varanasi, known as Birmingham’s largest Indian restaurant.
The actor was awarded $15 million by a court in Fairfax, Va., last week in the defamation case against Heard. Heard only received $2 million.
Depp’s security team reportedly checked downtown facilities before the actor arrived. After the gala dinner, the actor hugged and talked to the restaurant staff.
“We got an out of the blue call on Sunday afternoon that Johnny Depp wanted to come and eat with a group of people,” Mohammed Hussain, Varanasi’s chief operating officer, told The Post.
“I was shocked, and at first I thought maybe it was a joke. But then his security team came and checked the restaurant, and we left the whole place to them because that we are worried that he will be disturbed by other diners,” Hussain added.
The actor was there with musician Jeff Beck and 20 others and the group stayed for three hours before leaving. Depp met the manager’s friends and family before leaving with a take-out bag. The restaurant staff said he seemed like a “down to earth guy”.
Depp has been in the UK and touring with Beck since his case ended.
