Zee Zest acquires exclusive rights to ‘The Big Forkers’ Season 3

The 15-part series will be available for viewing starting February 15, exclusively on

Zee Zest has acquired the exclusive rights to Season 3 of The Big Forkers, an unscripted show, featuring cousins and hosts Shashank Jayakumar and Sid Mewara a.k.a ‘The Forkers’ love for food, travel, and discovering new cultures.

The Big Forkers Season 3 is a 15-part series and viewers can binge watch it starting February 15, exclusively on  

In the third season, the duo will be seen discovering the ‘Urru’, Bangalore and its culinary offerings right from the local fair, regional specialties, and international tables along with the fan-favourite, ‘the pub crawl’. 

The journey of food discovery and exploration for Sid, an investment banker, ex-chef and his cousin and co-host Shanky, technology entrepreneur and consultant to The World Bank, started with a tipsy conversation with friends while traveling through Spain in 2019, following the food trail by the late Chef Anthony Bourdain.

Inspired and encouraged, the cousins then set up a YouTube channel in 2020 called The Big Forkers that showcased their exploration of cuisines. After two successful seasons in Mumbai and Goa, The Forkers are back with yet another entertaining season.

On acquiring The Big Forkers, Amit Nair, Business Head, Zee Zest, said, “The earlier two seasons piqued our interest with the duo’s edgy take on food and its many stories around it. In Big Forkers Season 3, there is enough for the Bangalore local, the steady traveller or someone on the couch chilling with a cold one to take away from this latest instalment from the big boys. This series is the first among the many digital-first properties that we plan to launch on” 

From local food legends to upcoming stars, and beer gardens to college favourite pub crawls, they uncover pub life in Bangalore and the drinking culture across town.

Mewara said, “Bangalore was all new to me which made it a voyage of discovery. Through the research we did on the ‘Urru’, we knew we wanted to cover some of the staples such as the tiffin rooms, the military hotels and the craft beer scene. Personally, I love how progressive the city is, an oasis of sorts and can’t wait to show the viewers what we have in store.” 

“Bangalore, for me, has always been work-related. But just delving deeper made me realize that the city has held on to its European connections from colonial times. What I like, though, is that a majority of the population has managed to still be true to its roots. You will still see them in afternoon drinking sessions with Idli, Chutney on the side, or with Chicken 65 as a starter and I love Bangalore for that,” Jayakumar added.
