‘IT’S A WRAP!’
These words on the sets of a film shoot are usually followed by the loudest cheer. Because it means that all the hard work, long hours and gruelling schedules to create something exciting and larger than life can finally come to a conclusion.
Things were no different at Pal’s Dhaba in Sector 28, Chandigarh last night. After 5 long days of waking early and sleeping very late, screaming fans and teeming paparazzi, bumpy roads and honking horns, milestones and marble stones, hot sunny mornings and musical starry nights, and some of the best imaginable meals that for most of us would take a lifetime to experience… the Food Yatra came to an end with a resounding ‘Hurrah!’, a lot of bonhomie and goodwill, and even a few misty eyes.
Each one of the massive 60-member team who was on the Yatra had at least one favourite moment from the trip. While for Parineeti, it was definitely the moment she arrived back home to her parents’ place, a place where she grew up and was now proudly returning with her co-stars and workers, for Aditya it was that moment in Miranda House College when the girls were chanting ‘Aditya!’ ‘Aditya!’ reached a deafening crescendo and made him feel like the king of the world!
Things will be never be the same again. A road-trip of this magnitude can do that to you. But then this was no ordinary road-trip… this was a road-trip to sample some of India’s most delectable local and street foods. So our Bandra-boy RJ Glen of Fever 104 FM will never ever be the same again… unless if he decides to get back into some rigorous training and lose the happy foodie pounds he has put on! ;)
For those who just can’t have enough of the effervescent and pretty Parineeti and the intense and handsome Aditya, their ‘mouth-watering romantic film’ Daawat-E-Ishq releases day after. And for those who just can’t have enough of the Food Yatra, get right back here tomorrow for a story on how food is such an integral part of not just the film, but lends extr flavour to the music of the film… and how it is inseparable from any music – soulful or foot-tapping, melody or rap – created by the popular music director duo Sajid-Wajid!
Here are a few endearing and enduring pictures of the one of the biggest Food Yatras ever!
