My cookery show will break myth that celebs can't cook: Farah Khan

Mumbai, PTI | Updated : 19 February 2015, 02:38 PM

Filmmaker Farah Khan is all set to don the apron for her new cookery show ‘Farah Ki Daawat’, which she says will break the common misconception that celebrities can’t cook.

The ‘Happy New Year’ helmer’s new show will feature several of her Bollywood friends including Abhishek Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Malaika Arora Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Kapil Sharma, Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Johar among others.

“The guest list of the show has been decided by me. The show will feature a lot of my celebrity friends, who will share with the audience their recipes and cook them with me.  It is a very entertaining show which will give the viewers informed recipes,” Farah told PTI in an interview.

“People normally have this notion that celebrities can’t cook and don’t enter the kitchen. This show will in a way break that myth. You will get to see Boman Irani making traditional Parsi dish Dhansak.... There will also be food related challenges,” she added.

The choreographer-turned-director is no stranger to the small screen having been part of shows like ‘Indian Idol’, ‘Jhalak Dikhlaja’, ‘India’s Got Talent’ and the latest ‘Bigg Boss Halla Bol’. Farah said being part of this show was very natural for her as she loves everything about food.

“I am a lover of food. I love cooking, I love eating, I love shopping for food, I love watching food shows. So, it was an obvious decision for me to be a part of this show. I was in talks with the makers for almost two years. In fact ‘Hall Bol’ was a surprise for me,” she said.

The director, who is a mother-of-three, said that there is a special section on the show dedicated to healthy recipes and she hopes to take away some of them to her own kitchen.

“In the healthy food section, I will share recipes which don’t require oil or use very little of it. We even do the deep frying recipes in an air fryer. I hope to take away few of those recipes to my kitchen as well,” she said.

Farah said that post the show she plans to take a long vacation with her kids.

“I am not doing any film right now. I am planning a long vacation with my kids to Maldives sometime soon and hopefully during that time some story idea will strike me,” she said.

‘Farah Ki Daawat’ will go on air from February 22 on Colors.
