No matter how much you love thin-crust pizza with loaded toppings or saucy lasagna, nothing can match the inner satisfaction offered by wholesome home-cooked food. Relishing exotic dishes at a fancy restaurant indeed brings joy but the comfort of a desi meal feeds our souls. And, Bollywood actor Saqib Saleem relates to us here. The Race 3 actor shared a glimpse of his dinner on Instagram Stories. Here, we can see a bowl of spicy-looking baingan ka bharta with some bun. The meal seemed to be even more special for Saqib due to the person who sent it. He revealed that choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan had sent it. “Thank you for being the best always. Love you Farah Khan ma'am,” Saqib wrote.
