Vikas Khanna

The 45-year-old Michelin starred Indian chef, restaurateur, and cookbook writer Vikas Khanna is one of the leading personalities not only in India but is famous among the global audience too. His childhood love for cooking took him from the streets of Punjab to work with the Taj, Oberoi, Welcomgroup, and Leela Group of Hotels and with some of the most influential chefs of the world including Gordon Ramsay, Bobby Flay, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Based in New York, Khanna was referred to as the "The Hottest Chef of America" and got his name on the list of the Sexiest Men Alive in the People magazine in 2011. Though entering the Indian television a little later in his career, it did not take time for him to become Indian audience's favorite chef too. It all began with Masterchef-2. He later appeared in the following three seasons too. As a lesser known fact to many, he is also involved with charitable and social welfare organizations like South Asian Kid's Infinite Vision (SAKIV) and Smile Foundation.
