  • Latest News: Winner
  • MasterChef Telugu season 1 is set to conclude on Saturday (November 27). Notably, host Anasuya Bharadwaj, who has replaced Tamannaah Bhatia
    as a host, will be missing from the season finale.
    If insider reports are to be believed, Anasuya has quit the show much ahead of the finale shoot due to payment issues. However, an official confirmation on this is awaited at the moment. Anasuya stepped into the shoes of Tamannaah Bhatia as a host after the latter also quit the show on similar grounds.

    Tamannaah has even initiated a legal action against producer Innovative Film Academy (IFA) for the recovery of her 'payment dues'. The producers have also issued an official statement blaming the actress for a Rs. 5 crore loss due to her 'unavailability'. They added that she demanded an advance amount for season 2 in order to shoot for the finale episodes. Tamannaah's legal team in their recent official statement, expressed their shock over the production house's response. The actress' team stated that IFA has 'concocted false stories to defame Tamannaah' and has no option left but to take a legal action to recover her dues.

    Meanwhile, the latest teaser of the show has the judges unveiling the chef coat and shield for the five finalists. Abdul, Kamal, Tejaswi, Anupama and Anusha have finally made it into the much anticipated finale.

    MasterChef Telugu was launched on August 27 and airs on every Friday and Saturday. The show is judged by Sanjay Thumma, Chalapathi Rao, and Mahesh Padala.
  • Sarath got evicted from the MasterChef Telugu show : Sarath, 31, a digital marketing expert from Visakhapatnam, was one of the talented home cooks, who stepped into the MasterChef Telugu kitchen with big dreams in his eyes. However, his journey did not last long got evicted, But his passion for cooking and the character he has displayed on the show was lauded by the host and judges. Sarath poured his heart out about his journey on the show and how his yen to become a celebrity has propelled him to take part in the coveted reality TV series and how he plans to capitalize on this fame. Excerpts...I always wanted to be in the top 5, never ever dreamt of getting eliminated this early. I'm very disappointed with my eviction. I've a lot more to showcase. I felt I'd have shined in solo challenges but these group challenges didn't go well as expected. I wouldn't have gotten eliminated if my team took my idea. I just trusted Tejaswi and her idea of making a cake in that challenge. We didn't know how to demould a cake which cost me. Myself and Kamal shared a great rapport. He always told me that both of us should be in the finale. He was the one who taught me baking. We were surprised to find each other on sets (in Bengaluru) after auditioning in Hyderabad. I've many fond memories with him. My wife got me all the ingredients even when we couldn't afford. I picked up the hobby of cooking as a bachelor after moving to Hyderabad. I never liked these 8am - 5pm jobs. So, I started food vlogs. My friend encouraged me to apply for MasterChef and my wife helped me a lot to prepare for the show. Right from childhood, I always wanted to be a celebrity. I've worked in a few short films while I was in Visakhapatnam. Some of them had Siri Hanmanth (Bigg Boss Telugu 5 fame) in them. With the fame and recognition MasterChef gave me, I'm now planning to continue doing content for YouTube and also start a takeaway outlet for everyone who loves homemade food. I'd love to explore some work opportunities in movies as well.
  • Host Tamannaah Bhatia calls a dish 'the best on the show so far'; Chef Sanjay Thumma not impressed: Team Blue including Anupama, Nazeem and Anusha led by Kamal prepared 'Plum Yum' impressed host Tamannaah and judges Chalapathi Rao and Mahesh Padala.

The three captains Saurab, Kamal and Sarath chose their teammates in a round-robin method. The three teams got secluded based on the category of ingredients and they were instructed to prepare a dish with their ingredients within 60 minutes. It was a Team Relay challenge where each teammate got to cook for 15 minutes each. The next team mate took over cooking after their respective time limit.

  • In the statement, the makers stated a commitment of completing the project in 18 shooting days and a remuneration of Rs. 2 crore for actress Tamannaah Bhatia for the same. They added that a payment of Rs 1.56 crore was done to the actress for the 16 shooting days that she has appeared for. The production house also alleged that Tamannaah is demanding an advance payment for the second season in order to complete shooting for the finale.
  • IFA Press release
  • Her lawyer's statement reads, "Due to the non-payment of dues on MasterChef Telugu and unprofessional conduct by the production house Innovative Film Academy, Tamannaah Bhatia is being forced to take legal action. Despite the continuous non-payment and unprofessional approach, she cancelled other commitments and was determined to complete the entire project. However, since the production house has overnight stopped communication with her, she is now forced to consider filing a legal suit against them."

  • Tamannaah Bhatia and the makers of the TV show MasterChef Telugu continue to be at logger-heads when it comes to the actress’ exit from the show.
  • Reports surfaced a few days ago that she has been replaced by anchor-actress Anasuya Bharadwaj to host the show. A promo of the same was also uploaded by the channel but it made fans curious to know why Tamannaah, who was seemingly very excited to be on-board, had left the show. Soon the actress’ lawyer put out a statement alleging non-payment of fees. It reads, “Due to the non-payment of dues on MasterChef Telugu and unprofessional conduct by the production house Innovative Film Academy, Tamannaah Bhatia is being forced to take legal action. Despite the continuous non-payment and unprofessional approach, she cancelled other commitments and was determined to complete the entire project. However, since the production house has overnight stopped communication with her, she is now forced to consider filing a legal suit against them.”
  • The makers of the show now however hit back with a statement of their own, stating that they have approached Bangalore Civil Court & Commercial Court as per the terms signed by her. The statement reads, “We would like to bring to your kind notice that the claims made by the actor are false. The contract between Innovative Film Academy (IFA) and Tamannaah is for eighteen shoot days starting from 24 th June to the end of September. For this time period, the production house, IFA, had agreed to pay Actor Tamannaah Rs 2 Crore as per the contract that both parties have mutually agreed upon.”
  • The makers now allege that not only was the actress paid for sixteen days of shoot, they blame her for running behind schedule. “IFA has paid Tamannaah a total amount of Rs 1.56 Crores for sixteen days of the shoot that are done. The full shoot schedule was supposed to be completed between June 24 th and September but it is still not finished, owing to her other commitments. Due to the enormous delay by the artist, this has resulted in a loss of more than Rs 5 crores for the production house towards a huge standing cost of 300+ crew. The balance amount of Rs 50 lakhs was supposed to be released, as per the agreement, after the completion of the two days of shoot for the finale which is still not shot. Despite Tamannaah not furnishing her availability for the finale shoot, IFA has always maintained they will still pay her for those days once she comes and shoots the finale.”
  • They also allege that she ‘demanded’ advance payment for the second season, apart from more money to come back on-board for the remaining episodes. “At this juncture, Tamannaah has demanded advance payment for second season association as well in order to complete the finale shoot of the first season, which is shocking to us as we have not prepared for it. As per the agreed terms, any difference should be dealt with by arbitration but Tamannah took it to the media recently. As a responsible organisation we have taken the legal step on his subject.”
