Elaborating further on the show, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, Colors, said, “The first thought on our minds when we wake up is ‘What should I have for breakfast?’ Food is a critical element of our lives and with ‘Farah Ki Daawat’, that is something that we are attempting to bring to the forefront. Unknown to many, Farah Khan is a complete foodie at heart and her food journey on-screen and off-screen makes her an unprecedented culinary voice in entertainment. Her knowledge in the kitchen is extraordinary and we hope her wealth of experience in food transforms into delectable food items in not only her, but also the viewers’ kitchens.

Speaking about her new stint on television, Farah Khan said, “I love cooking because it is quite calming and therapeutic. And by virtue of being a complete foodie, I also love feeding the people around me. But, as they say, a lot can happen over food. Through ‘Farah Ki Daawat’, I hope to bring out the different traits of celebrities, which viewers have only wondered about. Be it about the food that is cooked in their kitchens, or their own secret recipes about their favourite dishes, ‘Farah Ki Daawat’ will be all about good food and unadulterated entertainment.”
