The shooting for Bala begins today,” Ayushmann tweeted on Monday. IANS LUDHIANA | TUESDAY | 7 MAY 2019 Food start-ups from the city are reframing the culinary scene with fusion food, out-of-the-box presentations and promotions to win a loyal customer base Mona Y OUNG enthusiasts are fast transforming the food culture of our city. While the culinary scene in Chandigarh is almost close to saturation, some engineers, some students, doubling up as entrepreneurs, backed up by a thorough food and beverage background, are not only standing their ground, but also expanding with multiple outlets in tricity! ENGINEER’S HAND It was one summer in the US that gave food enthusiast Ankush Arora an idea to roll out a gourmet American street food chain. And, so was born Uncle Jack’s. While there are options aplenty, yet there was none that did American street style grilled onion, pepper, fajitas or sliders. And, that’s precisely what this engineer’s hand-crafted brand brings to city. Roll Xpress was born out of the exasperation of another engineer, Amit Chugh. He was appalled by international brands entering Indian markets and succeeding with selling aloo tikki burger! “Why don’t we sell our indigenous flavours, our style, to the international market?” For Guntash Sandhu, it was the desire to do something productive Amy Jackson engaged Actress Amy Jackson and her partner George Panayiotou are officially engaged. The couple, who is expecting their first child together, celebrated their engagement with a party in London on Sunday. Images and videos show Amy and Panayiotou having a good time. In one of the videos, the two are seen dancing together. Amy shared several clips as Instagram stories and in one of them, she was heard saying: “He put a ring on it!” The 2.0 actress also shared a photograph from the engagement revelry, and captioned it: “The most unbelievable day celebrating our engagement. Thank you to all our amazing friends and family who made it so special so much love (Yayia doing the Greek traditions for us).” In March this year, Amy had revealed that she was expecting her first child with George. She shared a post on Instagram and said how the couple “can’t wait to meet the little one.” The 27-year-old actress made her acting debut with 2010 Tamil movie Madrasapattinam and has featured in several Telugu, Hindi and Kannada films apart from Tamil films. She was also seen in Bollywood films like Ekk Deewana Tha, Singh Is Bliing and Freaky Ali. — IANS A story for PeeCee’s kids! Tasteof success SHREH MADAN Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas already has an epic love story lined up for her future children with husband and singer Nick Jonas. With the annual Met Gala happening on Monday, Priyanka, 36, expressed some nostalgia when she shared a set of photographs of her and Nick, 26, from the 2017 ball on her Instagram. Priyanka says she will definitely tell her and Nick’s future children about their Met Gala love story. It was in 2017 at the Met Gala that Priyanka and Nick walked a red carpet together for the first time. “The story I’ll definitely tell our future kids… How I ‘Met’ your father,” she wrote, adding several red heart emojis. The quote is a nod to the hit sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” in which a father tells his love story to their two children. Priyanka and Nick weren’t an official couple when they posed together on the red carpet that year, but the photographs sparked speculation that perhaps a romance was brewing between the two. Almost a year later, the pair was engaged in July 2018 after two months of dating. They tied the knot in December last year with an extravagant wedding celebration that spanned three days in PRIYANKA CHOPRA AND NICK JONAS India. — IANS GUNTASH SANDHU along with finishing school that gave rise to Hash Guys. It was eating at Chili’s one day that Shreh Madan saw an opportunity of providing quality food at a reasonable price. With a degree in hotel management from Oxford Brookes University, UK, he was handling the pharmaceutical business and staying in tricity when he conceived the idea of Burgrill. For Divyansh Gupta, Foodibles was born out of the necessity he felt of a tiffin service that could cater to students like him. Three years on, he is happy making about 500 plates a day with major corporates as his clients and looking at expanding to other cities next!

However, these home-grown brands have done reasonably well. Uncle Jack’s has seven joints in tricity, and presence in Delhi, Ludhiana and Patiala already. If one has to pick its USP , quality food and interesting presentation it is. But a brand is to be built from a scratch. “Just like Rahul, Pooja are very relatable Indian names, so is Jack for America and since our restaurant serves it all American, the name made perfect sense.” Three years in Chandigarh, not only has this diner won hearts, its cheese fries have gone global, getting a mention in LA Food Fest. His venture has been a case study at IIM Ahmadabad, while also at KFC and McDonald’s headquarters. Beating the competitors is a thought that never crossed this 28-year-old’s mind. About three years on, Roll Xpress sits pretty at 12 outlets across tricity and aiming at 100 across country by the end of 2019. While most of their business is through online sales, selling through Uber Eats, Swiggy, Zomato and the like, Amit insists that loyal client base is made at the outlet. FOOD GAME Guntash banked on a catchy name to fetch his first few customers, “Now you see hash as in hashtag or something else, it’s up to you, but someone coming in served my purpose.” Next was to tickle the taste-buds! “I do a lot of Indian-American fusion, which has worked well with city food lovers’ palate.” Shreh claims many firsts that give an edge to his outlet Burgrill, which has seven outlets in tricity and 28 in total, spread across 12 cities. “Being trained in UK, I have learnt to pay attention to every minute detail. Right from the temperature of the food being served at or stored, we have total standardisation.” (With inputs by Sheetal) Varun in Govinda’s shoes Kalki to join Actor Varun Dhawan is “uncontrollably excited” about the remake of Coolie No. 1, and says it is his new challenge. Varun will be stepping into the shoes of veteran Govinda, who featured in the 1995 film, which was directed by Varun’s father David Dhawan. David is on board to helm the remake as well. “I feel honoured, grateful and uncontrollably excited to be a part of the remake! That’s the next challenge that I’m ready to take up,” Varun told.
