Audrey Hepburn was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognised as both a film and fashion icon, she was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third-greatest female screen legend from the Golden Age of Hollywood, and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. She won three BAFTA Awards for Best British Actress in a Leading Role. In recognition of her film career, she received BAFTA’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award, and the Special Tony Award.
The portrait on this cup is a tribute to Audrey Hepburn for her role in her famous romantic comedy ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. Her iconic image from that character holding a cigarette holder in her hand was taken as an inspiration and was given a little desi twist to it. In the image Audrey is dressed in ethnic clothing and instead of the iconic Cigarette holder in her hand she is now holding our signature Karak Chai. The image represents a fusion of classical British celebrity in an ethnic look. The Urdu wording along with the image says
گرم چائے کاپیالا = Hot Cup of Tea
مزہ سب سے آلٰی = Best satisfaction
