Zaheer Khan launches his third restaurant
Zaheer Khan launched his third restaurant named Toss in Pune on May 6, and the launch was attended by some of his RCB team mates along with his close friend, Yuvraj Singh. Zaheer Khan has added a personal touch to the restaurant by putting up some wonderful memories in the form of photographs on the walls.

One of them also includes a photograph of Sachin Tendulkar in the middle with Yuvraj and on his right and Zaheer on the left. Members of the Royal Challengers along with other cricketers like Murli Kathik were present during the launch. “It (the restaurant) is outstanding. Look, I have been to all the other Zak's places. The first one I was there when it started and last year when I was part of Pune Warriors and we played RCB, Zahir Khan opened his second and now this one. Somebody, like Zak, he has always been fond of food. You can make out. It is good that he has gone ahead with his passion and done something which is very close to his heart,” Karthik told NNIS.

While his close friend Yuvraj Singh considers him to be the right person, when it comes to making business choices. He said, “All the business ideas come from Zaheer. So, whenever there is a business brand we all consult Zaheer Khan. He has got the best idea. Hopefully, if I want to get into business, I will consult Zaheer Khan.” The previous restaurants that he opened has been relatively successful, hence it was no surprise for him to open a third one in a major place like Pune.

Zaheer Khan is not the first Indian cricketer to have opened up a restaurant. Previously players such as Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag have opened a restaurant in the past. Tendulkar's and Sachin's are two restaurants that Tendulkar launched. Sourav Ganguly came up with a a four storied multi-cuisine restaurant, Sourav's, while Sehwag opened a restaurant known as Sehwag's favourite.

Mean while it seems that it is better off that these players involve themselves in the game of cricket only, as these restaurants did not turn out to be a success. Sourav's has shut down. Sachin's and Tendulkar's have also been shut down. The same fate holds true with Sehwag's favourites as well. But Zak's restaurants have been an outstanding case as far as cricketer's opening restaurants are concerned.
