As per a recent revelation vide a Tweet post by Discovery Plus streaming platform, their upcoming celebrity cooking show ‘Star vs Food’ will begin streaming from April 15, 2021, onwards. The post began with the words “They rule the silver screen, but can they rule the kitchen?”.
The show’s format apparently features famous Indian celebrities including Kareena Kapoor Khan (in her OTT debut) Karan Johar, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor and Pratik Gandhi (of Scam 1992’s fame) and their spirited endeavors showing their culinary skills, albeit under the supervision of a professional chef.
