Looks like signing up to host MasterChef India has really made Akshay Kumar emotional, remarks my dhobi Safedi Lal as he saunters into my room. What are you talking about, I ask, and he says that the actor will be shooting an episode of the show in Bangkok soon.

Reason: Bangkok is where Akki worked as a cook while training in martial arts many years ago, Safedi enthuses. As if I don’t know! Safedi goes on to say that while it was the channel’s idea to fly to the Thailand capital, Akki suggested shooting at the same place he worked at, so that he could cook the very dishes he used to whip up while he was still struggling there. Nice!
