'Junior MasterChef' contestants wow Randhir Kapoor

Mumbai, Sep 11 (IANS) The love for cooking and the culinary skills of contestants of the first edition of "Junior MasterChef" stumped actor Randhir Kapoor who said he is proud of them.

As the nation celebrates Ganesh Utsav, the show too dedicated an episode to the festival where contestants prepared traditional 'modaks' with a twist at the RK Studio.

The children gave a twist to the recipe and created beetroot, pineapple and marble-effect 'modaks'.

Randhir and his younger brother Rajiv were present there.

"I can't make a proper cup of tea, so I am amazed at the cooking skills of these little Junior MasterChef contestants. They have been cooking international cuisine at such a tender age. I am so proud of them," Randhir said in a statement.

"The 'modaks' were delicious and added great flavour to our festival," he added.

The show, judged by chefs Vikas Khanna, Kunal Kapoor and Surjan Singh Jolly, airs on Star Plus.-*-

Celebration time in 'Pavitra Rishta'

Although they are usually seen dragged into the family tussle, on the occasion of Ganesh Utsav, the three generations of the TV show "Pavitra Rishta" will bury the hatchet and perform together.

Savita Tai (Usha Nadkarni) and her husband Damodar (Ajay Wadhavkar) will bring back the golden era of black and white cinema by jiving on 1950s classic "Shaam dhale, khidki tale" from the film "Albela".

Manav (Hiten Tejwani) and Archana (Ankita Lokhande) will perform on "Ek main aur ek tu" from "Khel Khel Mein", while Arjun (Rithvik Dhanjani) and Purvi (Asha Negi) will dance to the hit song "Dilliwaali girlfriend" from "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".

Most importantly, Bollywood actors Vivek Oberoi, Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani will join them during the celebrations to promote their forthcoming film "Grand Masti".

The Ganesh Utsav special will be aired Sunday on Zee TV.
