It is said that you can take a person out of India, but you can’t take India out of the person. The saying stands very true for actor, Anas Rashid, of “Diya Aur Bati Hum”, fame. The actor, who is playing the role of a halwai in the show, is very fond of Indian food. Hence, when he was required to go to Singapore recently for the shoot, he started missing his daily quota of Indian delicacies.
Although the country was great to shoot atmosphere wise and the people there were equally warm and helpful, one thing he missed badly was the food of his motherland. The unit had to survive on bread, butter and jam all through their stay. Although Anas Rashid is well versed in cooking, but unfortunately for him no one gave a serious thought about his willingness to cook.
The actor’s stay in Singapore was a very pleasant experience and everybody had a great time, shopping and visiting places like the famous Mustafa Market, known as little India. It is here that they got to taste the Indian cuisine, at last.
