Apple CEO Tim Cook is making waves in Mumbai ahead of the opening of the company’s first store in India. During a visit to the city, Cook was introduced to one of Mumbai’s most beloved street foods: vada pav. Accompanied by Bollywood star Madhuri Dixit, Cook visited Swati Snacks, a popular local eatery known for its delicious vada pav.
Dixit shared a photo of herself and Cook enjoying the tasty snack, and the Apple CEO responded by calling it “delicious.” The photo quickly went viral on social media, with fans of both Dixit and Cook sharing their excitement over the unexpected meeting.
Cook’s visit to Mumbai marks 25 years of Apple in India, and the company is celebrating by opening two new stores in the country. The Mumbai store will be the first to open, followed by a second location in New Delhi.
The opening of Apple’s stores in India is a significant milestone for the company, which has been working to expand its presence in the country for years. India is one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing smartphone markets, and Apple has struggled to compete with local brands that offer more affordable devices.
With the launch of its new stores and Cook’s high-profile visit, Apple is hoping to make a bigger impact in the Indian market. And if the reaction to Cook’s vada pav tasting is any indication, the company is off to a good start.
