Are you excited about Neena Gupta's next project? The veteran actress will be seen in Ajayan Venugopalan's Shiv Shastri Balboa. Although the film will release on February 10, the actors have already started creating a buzz around it. We have an update from one of the promotional events held recently. And, do you know that it includes food? Well, Neena reshared a video on Instagram Stories that shows her serving lunch to Mumbai Dabbawala at the restaurant named Maharaja Bhog. From the clip, we can make out that she is serving a rich, flavourful curry. Anupam Kher and Nargis Fakhri, who are also in the film, have joined her in the process. The text reads, “Nargis Fakhri, Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta serving food to Mumbai Dabbawala.” The hashtags were “Mumbai dabbawala” and “Shiv Shastri Balboa.”
Neena Gupta's love for desi food needs no special mention. Some days ago, we saw her diving into a sumptuous vada pav. Yes, Neena prepared the popular street food item at home and shared it with her daughter Masaba Gupta. For the caption, Neena wrote, “Atma tripti (soul satisfactory).” Masaba also shared a snap of her platter. Read all about it here.
Neena Gupta once prepared dinner using her home-grown vegetables. She, first, shared a video of two pieces of okra (bhindis), loaded with masala, all ready to be cooked. At the same time, we could hear her saying, “Mere gamle mai do bhindi ugi hai, dono bhindi ko masala laga ke, aadhi roti ke sath bhindi kha rahi hu (The okra is from my home garden. So, I have filled them with spices. I will eat half a roti along with it).” In the next slide, we saw her platter that showed two bhindis, paneer ki sabzi and a roti. She said, “Do bhindi, aur dusri paneer ki sabji. Par bhindi toh apni ugai hui hai na toh uska toh swad hi alag hai (Two okra and some cottage cheese. But okra tastes different as it is homegrown).” Read about it here.
Previously, Neena Gupta made the most of a rainy morning with a finger-licking breakfast. Any guesses? It was yummy mooli (radish) paratha! She dropped a picture of her paratha platter and left us drooling. The stuffed Indian flatbread was topped with creamy butter. “Mooli paratha for breakfast,” added Neena.
