Chandrachur Singh to host TV cookery show

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Chandrachur Singh, who gave a string of hits like `Maachis`, `Josh` and `Kya Kehna` in the early 90s, is all set to make his debut on small screen as a host for a cookery show.

The 42-year-old actor will be seen hosting TV show Royal Rasoi, a weekly lifestyle, travel and food show, produced by his brother Aditya Narayan Singh, for FoodFood channel.

Royal Rasoi is a show that explores recipes patronised by the erstwhile royalty. The show will not only cook up a meal fit for a king, but will also talk about royal household, where the recipe comes from, special recipe along with the history and anecdotes attached to it.

"It is a great travel-lifestyle-food show. It takes one to the roots and culture of India. Besides showing the recipes, what is more interesting is that the show will talk about the cultural diversity, history, music, art and architecture. In a way it is all knowledgeable," Singh told PTI in an interview.

For Singh the show is interesting in a way as he got the chance to visit places like Kota and Karauli from where his paternal grandparents came from. "It was an enriching experience for me as it took me back to my roots. I got to explore these places and other new places. I cherish all this and also the fact that I got to learn a lot of things," he said. The show will go on air this month.
