Season 1 of the Discovery+ celebrity cooking show Star VS Food had a successful run. The show featured popular celebs like Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Badshah, Pratik Gandhi, Janhvi Kapoor, Nora Fatehi, and Zakir Khan struggling with the condiments to cook food in the kitchen.

And now in season 2 of Star VS Food in partnership with Korea Tourism Organization, the stars are back to try their hands at cooking, with more chaos cooking up alongside.

Talking about the show in a media statement, Janhvi has described the cooking of a Korean dish as an ‘unparalleled’ experience. “Korean is one of the most challenging cuisines to prepare, but Chef Basu’s passion encouraged me to attempt even after so many blunders and ‘oops’ moments in the kitchen!,” said the Gunjan Saxena actor while also adding that she feels ‘extremely proud’ to get past her kitchen fear and work on the dish as well.

Janhvi can be seen imitating Salt Bae as she goes through the rushes, while Anil Kapoor peeks in with his witty one-liners, such as ‘Rulayga Kya?’. The 30-second sneak-peak also has Badshah looking clueless over the next steps. “Would you give me a job in this kitchen?,” quips Ananya while cooking. In a media statement, Ananya has said that while her sister Rysa can bake and cook, she has hardly been in the kitchen. “So here I am, taking up this challenge and ready to shock my family with my hidden talent, maybe,” the Pati Patni Aur Woh actor rounded off.

On the other hand, Bhuj: The Pride of India actor Nora Fatehi stated that food is the one unifier that ‘brings people close together.’ She further said that the show gave her the opportunity to cook traditional Moroccan food with the chef, and to showcase her cooking skills. “I have been witnessing my dad cook some delicious meals as he is a chef, and I always wanted to wear an apron and cook something for my friends and family,” she said, while also adding that she hopes to make her family proud with her cooking skills.

The Discovery+ exclusive show is slated to premiere on September 8.
