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 ?
