A few days back, HT Café reported that Salman Khan will soon be travelling to Jammu & Kashmir to shoot for his maiden home production, Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Now, we’ve learnt that he will be taking along his team of personal cooks so that he doesn’t miss home-cooked meals while he shoots in the Kashmir Valley area for around a month.
The cast and crew are also excited, since the same cooks prepared their meals even during an earlier schedule of the film in Mandawa, Rajasthan. They were treated to various mutton dishes and biryani that would be prepared for the entire unit.
“Salman is fond of food, and there are a few dishes he has loved since childhood. To avoid craving for his favourite dishes while he is travelling for outdoor shoots, he likes to take his cooks along. So, they will be travelling to Kashmir too,” says an insider.
Interestingly, Salman has personally taught the cooks how to prepare some of the dishes he is fond of. “There are some basic items that he has mastered over the years. He has trained the cooks to prepare them,” adds the insider. The unit is likely to leave for Kashmir in a few days, to shoot a major portion of director Kabir Khan’s film.
Despite repeated attempts, Salman couldn’t be reached for a comment.
