Vikas Khanna is not a new name in the food world and the celebrity chef feels that it's important to use fame as a responsibility than a weapon of destruction.

As power comes with a great responsibility, similarly fame is a kind of power and it can be either constructive or destructive.

Chef Vikas said: "I think fame is something that can be useful as well as destructive too. It's the glory because of which people start believing in what's written about them instead of believing in their work."

"I know that fame will come and fame will go, but during that time we need to do something really important. It's very important to use fame like a responsibility," he added.

The 41-year-old chef is seen on the small screen as the host and judge of "MasterChef India" and he thinks that the show is like "a food revolution in the country".

He said: "I am not a food critic but I think food is one of the greatest rituals of gratitude and grace. Shows like 'MasterChef India' are bringing a food revolution in the country."

It's not just his culinary skills that attracts people towards him, but his emotional nature also helps people connect with him.

Talking about his bond with the contestants on "Masterchef", he said that he "really bonds with them" and "eliminations are the toughest time" for him.

"People tell me that I should learn acting because even when the camera is on, I cannot disconnect myself from the reality. It's very difficult for me."

Khanna inherited love for food from his grandmother, whom he fondly calls biji, who taught him how to cook. He calls her his hero.

He said that he used to go with her to langar in gurudwaras and since then he wanted to do something in the food world.

He recently launched his book "Everyone Can Cook".

When asked for tips for young chefs, he said: "Just follow your heart and cook honestly".

    When Vikas talks he sounds all rashgulla type sweet. Hope he never changes and hope MC gives him more screen space.

    Adore the guy. But this season they have hardly given him any screen space. All we see is that highly irritating sanjeev kapoor.

    Hope he is the main judge on mc kids. He looks like the kind of person who will get along fabulously with children
