The latest BBC interview with Vikas Khanna has gone viral!
Michelin-star chef Vikas Khanna is one of the celebrities who made every attempt during the coronavirus pandemic to help the poor. He recently organized a major food distribution campaign to provide thousands of Dabbawalas in Mumbai and widows in Vrindavan with meals and necessary supplies. However, the latest BBC interview with Vikas Khanna has gone viral on the internet.
Vikas Khanna is lauded for hitting the BBC news anchor back, who presumptuously believed that the interest of the chef in supplying food to the poor and vulnerable in India stemmed from his sense of poverty as he grew up in India.
So below is a video from the interview. Take a Look at the tweet.

Anchor: In India, you were not from a rich family. So your sense of hunger must have come from there.
Vikas: NO, I am from Amritsar, everyone gets fed there in the langars. My sense of hunger came from New York! pic.twitter.com/u06BJDSzvj
Asking a concern, the BBC’s news anchor said that because you’re not from a rich wealthy family, your feeling of hunger must have come from there. You can hear the anchor saying:’ You have been famous now. You have cooked for Obamas, you have been on Gordon Ramsay’s show. But, you were not always like this. You are not from a rich family so I dare say you understand how precarious it can be in India.’
To this, Vikash says, “I understand, but my sense of hunger didn’t come from India so much, because I was born and raised in Amritsar and we have a huge community kitchen where everyone gets fed…”
Also he says his feeling of hunger came from New York, where he worked. As a man of colour, he addresses the tough times he faced after the terror attack on 9/11.
Netizens applauded Vikas Khanna for hitting back at the anchor for the BBC news.
