“Daawat-e-Ishq is a celebration of Love and Food” Says Parineeti Chopra 

By Aalia Khan

Gastronomic love stories are a rarity in Bollywood and Daawat-e-Ishq is one of those rare films on the subject, with the film’s lead actress, Parineeti Chopra, describing it as a full on celebration of food and love. Praising the plot, she says, “Though food plays an important part in Daawat-e-Ishq, it is at the end of the day a love story. Daawat-e-Ishq is a celebration of love and food, love for food, love over food.”

She explains how food is not normally a main focus in Indian films, but Daawat-e-ishq has managed to combine food and love to create a great story, “It all happens in good time. We can’t have films about food just for the heck of it. There has to be a proper story to tell because it stretches to a two-and-a-half-hour of playing time. Though food plays an important part in Daawat-e-Ishq, it is at the end of the day a love story.”

Asked if she and her fellow cast members ate a lot on set, she tells, “Oh, we were constantly eating. Every other day there was a sequence showing us eating and the scene would go on the entire day, so you can imagine. We ended up eating all the time.”

Daawat-e-Ishq being the actress’s second film with director Habib Faisal she explains that she felt extremely comfortable on set, “I think we have begun to understand one another to the point where we understand one another implicitly. I am very proud to be working with Habib Sir again.”
