Vikas Khanna Shared How He Felt When He Got His Michelin Star
After sharing his mantra to success and the secret behind never giving up, he inspired us a lot. He really focused on the importance of standing back up after a failure. But we wondered if failures or bad reviews still bothered him. He shared that, of course, the negativity affects him like it does anyone. Especially when VIkas Khanna first went to America, Indian chefs did not have representation like they do today. So, when he got his first Michelin star, it was a really great achievement.
However, people around him thought that he should have gotten 2 stars instead of 1, and that really affected him. What initially overjoyed him suddenly broke his heart. After a while, he had to focus on the truth and realise that for an Indian chef representing Indian food, it was still a big deal. Sure, the journey ahead of him was long, and he had a lot more to achieve, but for that moment, he focused on the win.
