At first on show I was really nervous, I remember on first day, there was this continuous question in my mind "Am I doing it right?" Then from the second day onwards, I became confident. It was truly a wonderful experience for me. Usually when I was doing YouTube videos it was a very small setup. It was a new and fun experience for me. Also when I did for YouTube, they always wanted me to keep it as short as possible, so I didn't had the opportunity to talk much about the dish, my memories around the dish, stories, techniques, texture, ect. Here I could talk a lot, so that was wonderful.
It was really comfortable, I loved the concept developed for Amma Superstar. It was very smooth working with them. From the beginning till the end the team supported me really well and their support was especially very crucial as this was my first TV show.
The show offers the viewers' lots of beautiful conversations revolving around food and memories related with food, local cultures from different parts of the country and related stories and along with that, loads of wonderful recipes. Amma Superstar highlights different relationship bonds that showcase the mother like love and comfort through food. This show brings different relationships and bonds that remind us of our mom's love and the connect with food.
