Buried Seeds by Andrei Severny, a documentary on India’s most celebrated chef Vikas Khanna, got a special preview screening at the prestigious Venice Film Festival on September 6 at the Villa of Giornate degli Autori.

“The trailer of the film was released at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year in May and had received a stupendous response. The documentary is a timeless story of passion, resilience, failure and rise and captures India and its glory whilst capturing Chef Vikas Khanna’s journey across India and later in the US. The film will premiere in 2018,” shared Andrei Severny.

For the first time, the subject of the documentary, Vikas Khanna, also counted amongst the Top 10 Chefs in the world, had been invited to host a lavish evening reception at the screening.

Khanna showcased richness and eclectic beauty of India and its culture at this prestigious dinner celebrating 70 years of Indian Independence. 

“It is an honour to be invited by the Venice Film Festival for a special preview screening of my documentary and to host a special reception. I am looking forward to the evening and introducing the Venetian taste buds to Indian cuisine. I have tried to capture the culinary specialty from all the states to celebrate India,” shared the celebrity chef, who travelled to Venice to be among the glitterati.
