Festivities or not food always plays an important part. Food plays an important role in bonding too and this was clearly seen at Sunday Kerala style lunch at home that Hrithik Roshan and Saba Azad enjoyed.

While caption of one post read ‘Special Sunday Sadya’ , another said, “When someone is so particular about what and how and why of serving Kerala food as Saba Azad, the benchmarks are also pretty high!!! Heartwarming to see such love for Mallu food and it was a fun, slightly anxious (you can make that out from our crazy hair) and supremely rewarding afternoon.”
Saba was also seen thanking the guys in the comments “You guys made our Sunday, bless you.” Along with a heart emoji.
