Vicky Kaushal’s Guide to the Ultimate Street Food Spots in Mumbai

Bollywood’s heartthrob and culinary enthusiast Vicky Kaushal, known for his powerful performances and chiseled figure, has a lesser-known side to him that resonates with the gastronome in everyone. In a city like Mumbai, where the streets are lined with myriad food stalls offering a kaleidoscope of flavors, Vicky Kaushal has confessed his reverence for some local favorites. As he cherishes homemade meals like his mother’s chole bhature and parathas, he also proudly boasts Mumbai’s street food scene and recommends the most savory spots for relishing Pani Puri and Samosas.

During an exclusive tete-a-tete with Curly Tales to promote his motion picture ‘The Great Indian Family’, the affable Vicky, when quizzed about his street food preferences, promptly unveiled his top picks for a classic indulgence in Mumbai’s culinary delights.

With an enthusiastic tone, the skilled actor divulged the secret locations he swears by. “I used to carry Samosas from Vyanjan, located in Oshiwara, Andheri West,” he remarked with a fondness that mirrors the common man’s love for comfort food. His recommendation doesn’t end there as he continued, “In Malad, right by the station, is a place called Gupta Ji. It’s where you’ll find an assortment of treats including Pani Puri, Sev Puri, Cheese Chili Toast, and even creamy Kulfi.”

In another candid exchange, this time with ANI, Vicky reflected on his influence on his spouse Katrina Kaif’s palate. He playfully shared that both have introduced each other to their culinary preferences. “Earlier, I was the one who cherished white butter and parathas, and now Katrina loves them too. I didn’t quite understand her penchant for Pancakes, but now they’ve grown on me as well. We have shared and blended our tastes,” Vicky added, highlighting their shared gastronomic journey.

Beyond the world of flavors, Vicky is channeling his dynamism into his upcoming historical drama ‘Chhaava’. The project, which is under the capable direction of Laxman Utekar, wrapped its Wai schedule recently. Vicky Kaushal is on board portraying Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj, with Rashmika Mandanna as his wife, Yesubai Bhonsale. Shooting initiated in October of last year and anticipation for the film is high.

Delving further into his professional undertakings, the versatile actor is gearing up for the cinematic venture ‘Bad Newz’. The film, which co-stars Triptii Dimri and Ammy Virk, and includes a role for Neha Dhupia, promises to offer a concoction of emotions and humor to the audience. Directed by the accomplished Anand Tiwari, ‘Bad Newz’, initially known as ‘Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam’, is slated for a July 19th release.

But the excitement doesn’t halt there. Vicky has been signed for a mammoth film that will see him reunite with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. This grandeur-filled cinematic odyssey titled ‘Love And War’ will also star powerhouse actors Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Bhansali, with his reputation for cinematic wizardry, aims to immerse the audience into an enthralling realm of love and conflict. The trio of actors, having already proven their on-screen chemistry in prior films—Ranbir and Vicky in ‘Sanju’, and Alia and Vicky in ‘Raazi’—has left audiences and the industry buzzing with anticipation. As per insider reports, the stars have cleared their schedules up to Christmas 2025 to dedicate themselves to this ambitious project.

In conclusion, while Vicky Kaushal continues to captivate audiences with his electrifying on-screen presence, it is his relatable, off-screen persona and love for the simple joys of life, like savoring Mumbai’s tasty street food, that endears him to fans even more. Whether on set or on the streets looking for a snack, Vicky Kaushal truly encompasses the dynamic spirit of modern Bollywood. With several big releases lined up and an evident culinary adventure ongoing, Vicky’s journey is full to the brim with flavors both literal and figurative.
