Shabana Azmi (Who Can’t Cook To Save Her Life) Plays A Chef In Vikas Khanna’s Next
It’s been kept totally under wraps . But here is something from one of India’s greatest actresses to bring cheer into the New Year. The mighty Shabana Azmi plays a chef in New York in her next film.
And this untitled film is directed my masterchef Vikas Khanna whose directorial debut The Last Color is accruing accolades all across the world. Apparently Khanna who is an ardent Shabana fan convinced her to play a chef on condition that he teach her to cook.
Laughs Vikas, “Shabanaji can’t cook to save her life.So when I offered her the role of a chef Shabana laughed off the offer saying it was like she playing a Bharat Natyam dancer, since she has two left feet.”
But Vikas assured her he would ensure she looked convincing in the culinary sequences. So she agreed. They shot the entire film before the lockdown but decided to keep the project under wraps until Vikas’s first film The Last Color was out.
Do we foresee another National award for the 5-times National awardee ?
