Delhi-based Ripudaman Handa’s passion and love for cooking helped him win the ‘MasterChef’ title in the third season of ‘MasterChef – Kitchen Ke Superstar’. The youngest contestant on the show was awarded Rs.1 crore and a chance to publish his own cookery book, a desire he has been harboring for long.

His desire is to go abroad and widen his understanding of food and cookery. This Punjabi boy with a flair for Italian cooking also hopes to open his own restaurant someday. ‘MasterChef’ experience was a life-changing for him and it has disciplined him as well as given him self-confidence



There is a great transformation in Ripu-Shivangi’s personalities and they also hold strong chances of challenging the other strong contestants. Stronger finances and international recognition will also be an additional gift given to them through this show.

Ripu said, “There are two reasons why I am dancing now. One – Shivangi really wanted to participate in the show and two – the choreographers have done one hell of a job.”
