MUMBAI: Yes, the cat is out of the bag. India’s first ‘Junior MasterChef’ is Sarthak Bhardwaj.
Chef Sarthak, as now he would be referred to, is a young boy from Dehradun. He is in eight standard and started cooking, because he owns a small stall. In the absence of his mother he helps himself too. His other hobbies are playing football. His mom says he is a very responsible kid.
The other two finalists were Sakshi Tripathi and Emanuel Chauhan.
Sakshi has been cooking for the past three years. She also likes cycling and “bharatnatyam”. She is very talkative and wants to be a chef when she grows up. When she is angry she puts a lot of spice in her food and when she is happy she puts lots of sugar into it.
On the other hand Emanuel Chauhan is a tiny tornado and is very creative! His creativity reflects in his cooking. He is energetic and at times can be messy in the kitchen.
This reality series was first of its kind and was ably judged by Chef Jolly, Chef Vikas and Chef Kunal. The grand finale would see performances by ‘Nach Baliye 6’ couple Riddhi Dogra and Raqesh Vashisth.
The “king of comedy” – Kapil Sharma, will anchor the show.
Other celebrities who would be seen on this grand finale would be Master Chef – Season 3 winner Ripu Daman Handa, Terence Lewis and others.
The guest of honor for the grand finale is Sonakshi Sinha. The Grand Finale goes on air next week on Star Plus even though you know the result in advance.
