Also to add on, during the auditions of 'Junior Masterchef Swaad Ke Ustaad' most of the contestants requested to meet Masterchef Season 3 winner Ripu Handa. In fact there was one such contestant who refused to give audition until the Chef makes her speak to Ripu.

It seems the winner of MasterChef Season 3, Ripu Handa has already got a huge fan following not only amongst youngsters but also within children.
