actor Yash Sinha, popular for his
role as Vinay in "Bhagyavidhata",
is a foodie and also enjoys
cooking. Now he plans to turn
his hobby into a business by
opening a restaurant soon.
"I want to do two things. Firstly, I
want to anchor a food show and
secondly, I want to open an
unusual theme based
restaurant," said Yash, who is
currently seen in Zee TV's "Afsar
"Before you ask me more about
the theme, let me tell you that I
will not speak a word about it as
I know the concept is really
unique and the place will be a
huge hit once it opens its doors.
If people get a whiff of what I
am planning to do, within a
month there will be a place
running on my concept," added
the actor who plays Bablu Singh
in "Afsar Bitiya".
In the past, he has played pivotal
roles in shows like
Bahuraaniyaan" and "Har Ghar
Kuch Kehta Hai".
He loves is grandmom's cooking
and revealed that he himself is an
expert in making mutton dishes.
"I am a specialist in cooking
different mutton dishes. My
signature dish is a mutton
starter, which is a unique
concoction of 'shammi' and
'galauti kebabs' put together.
Every time I throw a house party,
I get special request for my
signature dish," said Yash.
"I also seek new ways to carry
on traditional dishes by cooking
recipes passed on by my
grandparents and my father. My
grandmother was an excellent
cook. My maternal uncle owns a
very popular restaurant in Patna
and my grandfather has a
mutton dish named after him –
it's popularly called 'nana ka
mutton' in our family. My father is
a big foodie … need I say more.
Since childhood I have been
experimenting with different
herbs, spices and cold cuts," he
Yash loves to trying out local
cuisine while travelling.
"I am a hard core non-vegetarian
and I can eat anything that is
edible and tastes good. Though
North Indian cuisine tops my
priority list. I also appreciate the
most is the local specialties that
every place has to offer," he said.
"Whenever I go to a new place, I
chat with locals, take their
recommendation and make sure
that I don't leave the place before
sampling local food. Till date I
have never been disappointed,"
