Composers Sajid-Wajid's love Delhi's street food so much that during their recent visit for the auditions of music reality show "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2012", they decided to set up a tandoor counter at the venue itself.
Since their hectic shooting schedule did not allow them to tour the streets of old Delhi and gorge on delicacies at their favorite joints, the duo decided to bring down the tandoor counter to the backyard of the studio auditorium, and organised a feast for co-judges Shankar Mahadevan and Rahul Ram, as well as the show's crew.
"It's a sin to come to Delhi and not sample its famous Mughlai delicacies. We know some bawarchis (cooks) in Delhi, specialising in Mughlai cuisine. You can never sample such food in any five-star restaurant, but can only be had either on the streets of old Delhi or can be cooked by authentic bawarchis," Sajid said in a statement.
The production team was more than happy to cater to their food demands.
"Looking at Sajid and Wajid bhai's love for Mughlai food, we could not turn down their request of setting up a tandoor counter in the studio premises. And after tasting the food, we realised it was worth every penny. The food was truly divine and every crew member savoured the delicacies," said a production team member.
The show goes on air Saturday on Zee TV.
