  1. Hi Vikas,

    Hope you are doing good!

    I am Supriya and what I am going to do today, trust me haven’t done in my 30 years, that is writing a fan email. I used to find it really funny when fans would do anything to meet their idols. I am not sure if this email would get through you but for the first time in my life taking this chance of writing to someone I really find a humble human being.

    I am following Master chef – II and I must say you and your team has done a great work. I can see that the competition in this season is really intense.

    But irony is I have nothing to do with cooking and look at me I am a fan of you who is world’s number 1 chef. Only connection between me and you is food but I am on the other side of the table.  I am not sure how great chef you are until unless I get to taste food cooked by you (hoping and dreaming I get to meet you someday )

    I read your story on your official website and I am so proud of you as a fellow Indian and human being. What I can make out from the way you appear on the show is that you are honest person and still connected to your parents and roots. Please, keep up the good work!

    A little about me: I am Supriya and work and live in Hyderabad. Though I am from the north India and came to Hyderabad for work. Since you are as great foodie as I am, one thing I can do for you is invite you to Hyderabad and take you to all the local food specialists ( biriyani, irani chai, kebabs, haleem and osmania biscuits to name a few – Slurp Slurp!)

    With great hope to meet you in person (okay now I am getting greedy – don’t mind spending a day with you ), I am signing off.

    Best regards,
