Karan Kundrra Walks Down Memory Lane; Shares Stories About His Life Back In Jalandhar

On this episode of Tere Gully Mein, Karan Kundrra joined our anchor, Arohi Thatte, to explore Sion and they started by visiting the Gurudwara Shri Dashmesh Darbar in Sion Koliwada. This is only the correct way to start this video, with our Punjabi munda, isn’t it? While filming this video, we got to know that his life was completely different in Jalandhar, Punjab. Read on to learn more about it.

Karan Kundrra Life In Jalandhar Was Like

It turns out Karan Kundrra has fond childhood memories of Jalandhar, his hometown. This Punjabi munda has been living and breathing the same air as Mumbaikars but his heart still belongs to his hometown. While we were gorging on hot Amrtisari kulchas from Chawla Fast Food in Sion, we questioned him about his life back in Jalandhar.

If you are not aware, his father is Punjabi, while his mother is Malayali. Our boy, Karan, came out to be a perfect balance between south and north India. His taste palate is neutral; he doesn’t have a specific favourite food dish. Recalling his life back in Jalandhar, it was a proper rural life, though his family didn’t live on the farms. Karan Kundrra told us that they lived in the city but they had tube wells and tractors on the farm. The tube wells were used as a natural refrigerator and would keep the beer bottles chilled.

Next, Karan Kundrra informed us that his family preferred to prepare food traditionally right from scratch and enjoy it with the entire family every two weeks. He told us they used to make masalas for chicken by grinding it with their hands. The dish would often be laden with desi butter. The chicken used to be desi chicken, just like the ones you would get on the farms. It sounds so tempting and we would love to try it someday, Karan.

There was something very calming about this visit with Karan Kundrra. We were definitely not going to skip on langar after seeking blessings. He let us know that the langar at every Gurudwara is the same. He also shared that having the luxury of enjoying this meal is real. Rest; everything might not be as real as it is seen but this langar is. Langar is a communal meal shared at Gurudwara with all its visitors.
