Our own desi munda chef Vikas Khanna is making it big internationally. While everyone has been singing praises of Bollywood beauties Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Deepika Padukone at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, Khanna revealed the trailer of his film Buried Seeds directed by award-winning Russian filmmaker Andrei Severny today. The documentary is Khanna’s journey from Amritsar to America. He shared the trailer of Buried Seeds on Facebook saying, “The trailer of #BURIEDSEEDS – A life journey of Chef Vikas Khanna by Andrei Severny launched at Festival de Cannes.”
Buried Seeds is the story of an immigrant who has his own restaurant in New York city today. The trailer shows the dreams he achieved which were sowed while he was still a kid. Born with clubbed feet, Khanna could not walk like other kids of his age in his childhood. He became fascinated about cooking due to his grandmother. Even as a child he differentiated between vegetables and spices and understood its uses. It was the elaborate kitchen at the Golden Temple where he learned cooking and serving to people. Yesterday he had shared a poster of Buried Seeds on Twitter. He had also shared a picture of him going to Cannes for the trailer launch. Hat-trick for celebrity Chef Vikas Khanna at Cannes
