My mother had come down to Bangalore, where I was studying.That night when I reached home, I was asked, “How were studies?” and I replied, “I am done with it.” I declared to my mother that I was leaving, for Mumbai.

Last October when I suffered a setback owing to my back injury in Arjun, I sat back and thought a lot about this idea of mine. ‘Food’ has always been a favourite subject to talk on at my house. And I definitely wanted to do something related to food. The first time I had a conversation about this, was of course way back during my Chhoti Bahu days. I had then spoken about this dream of mine with one of my co-actors on the show. I believe that one needs to do something safe in life for a way of living. And apart from being an actor, I always wanted to set up something of my own.”
