VADA PAV- Yeh Dil Maange More!!!

The Pakistani participants Junaid, Mussharat, Wasi and Sikander Ali taking part in the Zee SRGMP C2007 Challenge never in their wildest dreams had thought that they would lose their hearts to a simple yet an exotic dish that is just so irresistible!!!

One day when they ventured into the streets of Mumbai, something caught their attention. It was not a mall, it was not a celebrity, it was not an inviting restaurant, no was it the beach! It was a simple very typical Mumbai road side joint selling “Vada Pavs”! They just succumbed to the temptation and decided to try it out.

One taste of vada pav and these boys were bowled over. They just loved it!! It became their prime attraction in Mumbai. Who would have thought this one experience in life would help them get through their stay in Mumbai with ease.

It so happens that these participants, although they have no problem relating with the Indian music, but when it came to food habits, they were totally lost. The pure vegetarian platter of Mumbai is very different from the food these participants grew up eating and selection of food therefore was a point of dilemma.

When they ventured into the Zee canteen,(which incidentally is vegetarian canteen) they were puzzled to see items like idl, dosa, pakora’s etc being served …until their eyes fell on a single item they could immediately identify and relate to. This item was the Vada Pav , the heavenly delight that they had tasted earlier on the roadside ! They liked it so much that they are now literally surviving on it during the shoot!

These boys , when they go back home, they will surely take back many nostalgic memories of the show and their stay in India .One memory which they will surely carry with them cherish for a long time to come is the memory of the lingering taste of our Aamchi Mumbai’s delight – every Maharashtrian’s pride, the memory of VADA PAV.
