Chef Harpal Singh Now Playing a Dhaba Cook
Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi, who is currently seen in the show “Channa Mereya”, said that he loves being part of it. He added that his character also follows the ideology that he believes in, which makes it even more fun to play him.
“The title reminds me of all the valuable things each one of us has in life and how we protect them, be it culture, family traditions, love for family, business, surroundings, nature, everything is dear to our heart, and we should respect each relationship,” he said.
The Mumbai-based chef owns a restaurant in Andheri. He also owns a lounge bar in Jalandhar and a restaurant as well.
The chef has been part of several food shows such as “Turban Tadka”, “Punjab de Superchef” and many more. He is making his fictional show debut with ‘Channa Mereya’.
He adds: “I am so happy that I am getting to play the role of Khushwant Grewal, who owns the dhaba, and shares all the values and traditions of running a successful dhaba. As a chef, I have always believed that people always taste life in the hands of the person who cooks food with love.”
“A recipe can guide you but when someone cooks with love, the food is going to be tasty. I have always believed that a positive atmosphere in the place you cook makes all the difference. The kitchen remains the most pious place,” he said.
About working with the team, Harpal says: “It’s been wonderful working with all the stars, and they are all fun to work with. Yash and Mamta are family. I have known them for many years, and we were planning to work on something for a long time and then ‘Channa Mereya’ happened. Yash Patnaik clearly had pre decided that I should play the role of Papajee as it is close to my profession as a chef, and I am enjoying what I am doing.”
