For food, shelter, and clothing, they have no choice but to forage for whatever they can, wherever they can.
Find out what Sanjay Dutt revealed during this one-of-a-kind journey:
Sanjay Dutt on Bollywood during the 80s v/s now, “There was so much bonding amongst all of us. We were so together, we worked in so many movies together.” Sanjay Dutt on a difficult time in his life, “The first time I went to jail if you see the photographs outside Thane jail – Anna, Akshay, Ajay, Shah Rukh, everybody came and wished me well.”
Later he adds, “I had no respite from serving jail time, so why overthink it? I had to make up my mind that yes I had to go. I have to face it. In six years, I faced it, managed it, made the most out of it, and learned from it. I used that time to learn cooking, scriptures, and working out. I came out with a better physique.”
Recalling his experience on Star vs Food Survival, Sanjay Dutt mentioned, “After my delightful journey on Star vs Food Survival, I’ve uncovered a fresh recipe for life—one that revolves around relishing each moment with loved ones and savouring the bonds we share.
Collaborating with my dear friend Suniel Shetty has infused this experience with a special essence, rekindling precious memories that I’ll cherish for a lifetime. Food, friendship, and laughter—truly the perfect ingredients for a beautiful life!”
Chef Ranveer Brar also shared an interesting parallel between wild honey and Shetty and Dutt, “Honey never expires. Just like both of your stardoms.”
Aside from two scrumptious meals carefully crafted with sparse resources against the backdrop of the luscious Coorg greenery, the first episode is also a testament to the fierce brotherhood shared by Shetty and Dutt, and also the communal aspect of old Bollywood. Catch the episode on October 9th at 9:00 PM only on Discovery Channel, and on discovery+.
