Sakett Saawhney: Sanjay Dutt encouraged me to open a restaurant

Producer-entrepreneur Sakett Saawhney’s Big Bang Curry seems to be really picking up and has become a favourite food joint for the celebrities. Recently, actor Sanjay Dutt visited the place and couldn’t stop praising the food. “I worked with him on a film called Zanjeer, which we produced a few years back. We are both foodies and I enjoy cooking for him as and when he is in the mood to relish my cooking. We have bonded over food more than work and he is one of the few people who really pushed and encouraged me to take my passion of cooking and turn it into a restaurant. I am so glad he loved the food,” says Sakett.

He adds, “I think most of the television actor friends have tried our food and those who haven’t, it because of their shoot schedule or travels. They will surely do so in the coming days.

Sakett is glad about the feedback that he has been getting. “We are happy that our food is being appreciated by people, some of whom happen to be celebrities. I am thankful to them for posting good things about us on social media. It really helps us spread the good word,” he says.

Ask him what are his most popular dishes, and he says, “Butter Chicken, Kheema Fry, Chicken Khurchan, Chicken Nimbooda, Dal Makhani, and our Galoutis are the best sellers.”

Talking about his plans for the future, Sakett adds, “Both I and my partner Ritesh Patel have great plans for the future. But we both believe in gradual and organic growth and are in no hurry for success. If we maintain the quality of food and keep serving our customers great food at affordable pricing and on time, the sky is the limit. In fact, we already have got inquiries for franchises in Raipur and Kolhapur.
