She talks to Cyrus about wanting to be a chef by watching MasterChef Australia, setting off to London and learning culinary skills at Le Cordon Bleu, how she got started after coming back to India, her venture ‘Pop Ups by Devika’, how pop ups might be the future of the dining industry and along the way tells about her fascination with the tv show ‘Friends’ that almost made her change her name, and how despite
being from a family of cricketing greats she’s an absolute novice at sport (much to Cyrus’ chagrin)
