When work takes you places, stop complaining about the hectic schedules. Instead, loiter, go, do the sightseeing, meet new people, make new friends. Because not everyone gets this chance and even you are also not going to have this privilege forever. This is what I have learnt from my work travel.
Well, I am in Mumbai for work these days and last week I received an invitation by Insignia Inox for an event. It was a launch event of gourmet menu curated by celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani exclusively for Insignia.

My Review of INOX Insignia
The event was on a week day and I was confused if I should attend it or not. But later I decided to leave office a bit early and attend it. It’s not always that you are in another city and get an exclusive invite of such an event.
And it was totally worth it. Right from listening to Mr. Siddhant Jain, then Chef Vicky to watching the movie premiere of Naam Shabana, the event was fun and exciting.
The Movie Experience at Inox Insignia
The movie begun and it was becoming difficult to decide on what to admire more? Taapsee’s no makeup look, my super comfortable recliner with a blanket and a pillow to cuddle, the bright screen which made the movie look like a live show or the highest quality sound systems… 😊
The Food Experience at INOX Insignia
What food options can you think of in a movie theatre? Well, various types of popcorn (I usually like to add extra butter and then feel guilty later), burgers, sandwiches, brownie, chips and more…
Insignia is changing the way people think of food options in a theatre. With Chef Vicky’s menu, you can replace your popcorn with healthy roasted Makhaana. Yes, Makhaana (fox nuts), the ones our moms serve us in evening snacks, especially when fasting during Navratras. They are rich in calcium and low on fats.
Other available options included corn on the cub (enjoy taking a bite from the cub rather than just eating the corn from a paper glass), hariyali biryani, Mumbai toastie (celebrating local Mumbai food) etc.
I loved eating ‘twice baked khichdi’ from the movable tray while lying on my recliner and watching the movie.
Overall it was a very royal and wonderful movie experience I ever had. And I now wish INOX
Insignia soon launches in Delhi too.
