We all have dreamt of travelling to exotic places overseas and trying out different cuisines – it would feel like one is living in a movie. And as a matter of fact, many movies are based on the joy of travelling and food. Movies like ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Queen’ and more make us want to take that bold step in life by travelling around the world. The movies make it look so wonderful and picturesque, but the one thing they forget to show is how Indians crave desi home-cooked food. An Indian can’t live without Indian food and the actor-comedian Vir Das proves us right! He recently had a similar experience in the United States of America. He has been touring his new comic routine ‘Manic Man’ all across the country and was recently seen in New York. His recent story gives us a glimpse of his cravings. Take a look:
