Dalip Singh Rana, better known as The Great Khali, is a name that resonates with the Indian wrestling scene. Inside the ring, he is a force to be reckoned with, but outside of it, he is a big-time foodie and who can blame him? Standing at a colossal height of over 7 feet, the man needs his fuel. Khali's love for food led him to venture into the culinary world, and last October, he opened "The Great Khali Dhaba." Recently, a video of Khali trying his hand at cooking has gained massive attention on Instagram. The video comes with an “ouch” moment, but it seems like people are loving their national hero wearing the chef hat.

In the video, Khali steps up to the stove where a wok is already placed over the flame. With a ladle in hand, he begins stirring the contents inside. However, within moments, flames shoot up dramatically from the wok, leading him to abruptly toss it onto the floor. The caption reads, “The Great Khali dhaba. The Great Khali is cooking. Don't try this at home. You need to be very experienced to do that”, along with wink-eye tongue-out emojis. Take a look at the video below:
In just one day, the video has garnered 23 million views.
