2. Sharmaji Namkeen (2022)

This film is special for more reasons than one. First, it is late actor Rishi Kapoor’s last film. Since he could not finish shooting the film, the character of Sharma ji is played by both Kapoor as well as Paresh Rawal. Along with this, the film is wholesome in itself. It revolves around the life of Sharma ji, a widower, who explores his love for cooking and turns it into a catering profession after feeling completely bored post-retirement. The film has some delicious foods to feast your eyes, and some emotional moments to make you cry. The film also stars actor Juhi Chawla.

3. Daawat-e-Ishq (2014)

If you love the lavish food of Lucknow like kebabs, biryani and phirni — this film will leave you drooling. While the film may not be very popular, it is a lighthearted rom-com with a subtle social message and lots of mouthwatering food. The film stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Parineeti Chopra and Anupam Kher in key roles.
