Kolkata: Hakuna Matata, a global fusion vegetarian restaurant, in Kolkata's iconic entertainment hub Park Street celebrated its fourth birthday recently in style, living up to the spirit of its title by screening "The Lion King" for its well-wishers and unveiling a few more mouth-watering dishes.
“Hakuna Matata" is our inspiration to present to you the vegetarian global fusion restaurant in the Heart of the city of joy," said its owner Prabhas Datta who invited his friends, associates, celebrities and media persons for an exclusive screening of "The Lion King" at the Quest Mall's luxurious movie theatre Insignia, Inox.

"Paying a homage to our inspiration, Hakuna Matata celebrated its 4th birthday by treating all its stakeholders to this very movie by organizing a private screening," he said.
Celebrities like Arpita Chatterjee (actor and producer), Rita Bhimani (corporate PR expert), Nayantara Pal Chowdhury (Honorary Consul of Norway and business personality), Bridgette Jones (eminent Stylist) and Dolly Jain (eminent saree drapist) were present at the screening and the cake cutting by Datta and his wife.

And the final cherry on the cake -the free WIFI – so that you make our place, your very own space!" said Datta.
There was a lucky draw organized at the restaurant wherein lucky winners won tickets to this screening. Further, winners from various online contests also won this chance.
