Sanjeev Kapoor & Team MasterChef India served a delicious treat to Mumbai’s dabbawalas even as the celeb chef conferred the title of ‘Pyaar Ke Postmen’ on the dabbawalas.
In recognition of their services in delivering with precision freshly made food to customers across Mumbai, Star Plus recently under took a first-of-its-kind initiative for Mumbai’s dabbawalas.
Through this initiative, Sanjeev Kapoor and Team MasterChef India served a delicious treat to Mumbai’s dabbawalas as a token of their appreciation. Kapoor, who is also the judge of ‘MasterChef India-4’, conferred the title of ‘Pyaar Ke Postmen’ on the dabbawalas and redefined the role played by them in the food industry.
Admiring the dabbawalas, Kapoor said, “Dabbawalas are not just the carriers of food, but also do the task of spreading joy and smiles. They are the ones who add true value to the food we cook. These dabbawalas are the backbone of the population of Mumbai and may they continue to be for a lifetime. Star Plus and the MasterChef India team salute their undying spirit and hard-work.”
Reacting to this initiative, a dabbawala said, “We the dabbawalas are highly motivated because we believe that delivering food to Mumbaikars is like a service to God, similar to giving medicine to the sick.”
Season 4 of ‘MasterChef India’, which has been India’s biggest platform for amateur cooks and food magicians, began airing on Star Plus from January 26, 2015.
