Actress Huma Qureshi dons the hat of late celebrity chef and food writer Tarla Dalal in the teaser of Tarla, a film that follows the popular culinary artist’s journey from being a homemaker to becoming the kitchen guide for almost every homemaker in India.
Unveiled by ZEE5 on Monday, the one-minute-12-second-long teaser introduces Huma’s Tarla as an ambitious young woman who wants to do something in her life but is unable to realise her passion. With time she realises her love for cooking and goes from being an amateur cook to a professional chef. Eventually, she opens her home cooking classes and then goes on to run her own television shows.
The clip also gives a glimpse of Tarla’s life beyond her profession. It features heartfelt moments with her husband and children. The teaser promises the film as an out-and-out feel-good story.
“Prepare to be served with a dash of emotions, a sprinkle of inspiration and a garnish of flavourful entertainment in #Tarla on #ZEE5, coming soon,” ZEE5’s Instagram page wrote alongside the teaser.
