From the very beginning, Ranveer was attracted to food. Its making delighted him. He used to go to Gurudwara every Sunday with his grandfather. There he saw chefs preparing Langar for a crowd of people. Ranveer used to sit and converse with them. Gradually, he developed a relationship with food.

The onset of his interest in Food
At the age of 15, Ranveer had explored Lucknow city with his friends when he figured out that the whole city was bound completely to this delicious variety of food.
Lucknow’s relationship with food attracted him deeply. Ranveer ate Kabab on a street shop, and all the while, he kept talking and asking the Kabab vendor about his life. That day, he came home back with a decision that he was going to be a chef.
Firmly, Ranveer explained to his parents about the day. But his father, being a gold medalist from IIT Kanpur, expected him to follow the legacy. So, being a chef was not an option. Up to then, his parents thought that he was innocent and ignored him. But then, Ranveer became stubborn to jump into this career. As a result, his father gave him a chance to prove himself. Following this, Ranveer began residing with kabab vendor Munir chacha for straight eight months. There he learnt all of his procedures and techniques.
Looking at the determination, Ranveer’s father agreed. As a result, he enrolled at IHM Lucknow. It was very strange for Ranveer to adapt in this sophisticated environment after working with a street food vendor.

His partner gave him 5000 dollars, and the restaurant was filed for bankruptcy. This incident made Ranveer depressed, and he didn’t tell anyone about this. He kept getting calls for thanksgiving from Indians, as he had helped them out. Finally, the twist happened when one of his friends learned about this happening. He pinged Ranveer and invited him to work alone in his restaurant. It was him who again ignited the flame to cook in Ranveer. He made Ranveer get up from being homeless on the streets and rise again with faith.
With five restaurants in the US and a few in Canada, Ranveer has spread his flavours worldwide. His next visit to India was also based on stubbornness. He was determined to save his father from cancer. And as a result, he did it. His father is happily alive today.
