India’s first celebrity chef has raised the bar for cooking shows so high, that others are still struggling to catch up. Such has the following been of this man that even after all these years, the popular phrase from his cookery show, Namak swad anusar, still plays in our heads as soon as we see him on TV. He has given kitchen hacks to countless cooking enthusiasts and continues to rule India’s food industry.

Sanjeev Kapoor: The name is synonymous with cooking. 


It was a pleasant surprise when we saw him shake a leg a few years ago in the celebrity dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa

He wasn’t the best dancer on the show but his charming personality compensated for his lack of dancing skills. He got eliminated in a few weeks but it was still a pleasure to watch him.


Turns out, Sanjeev Kapoor is a man of many talents and cooking is just one of them. He recently uploaded a couple of videos where he’s playing the drums!

Yes, you read that right! Sanjeev Kapoor plays drums. He, along with his team of chefs, plays covers of old Hindi songs and Sanjeev totally slays with the drumsticks. Whenever the chefs decide to take a break from the kitchen, this is how they unwind. 

Well, looks like Sanjeev Kapoor embodies the phrase ‘haathon mei jaadu’ perfectly.

Watch him play ‘Humein tumse pyaar kitna’ here:

And ‘Rim Jhim Gire Sawan‘ with his band in this video:

Certainly a man of many talents!
