Before Gulzar found his true vocation in the culinary arts, he used to be an actor of film and television. 1998, he left for Japan to train with oriental chefs. He graduated from the Tokyo University and served for three years at the Ginza Tokyo Hotel. His specialities include the oriental and the continental. The actor-turned-chef has long been associated with a number of private television networks in Pakistan since 2005. He hosts a live show on the country’s premier cooking channel, the Masala TV. Gulzar features simple yet delightful recipes which are easy to make. The theme varies from the local to international cuisine and is based on viewer requests received through e-mails, letters and live calls.

Early Life

Gulzar's parents hailed from Madras – a place in India famous for the love of food. His father, Muhammad Hussain, was an Electrical Engineer and ran a side business of a restaurant by the name of Top Taste. Gulzar grew up primarily in his hometown and graduated from the University of Karachi. Before Gulzar became a chef, he was an actor. He had appeared on a series of television commercials and acted in a movie called “Siyaasat” (Politics) which was produced by the veteran actor Syed Kamal. Meanwhile, Gulzar also did some Choreography for fun. The day he was offered a male lead in a movie titled “Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein” produced by Nazar-ul-Islam, his father forced him to tend to his restaurant instead. While working half-heartedly, a customer complained that the food was terrible and service second-rate. Gulzar felt so bad that he left for home. On his way, something strange struck his mind and he decided, on the spur of the moment, to learn the art of cooking. Moments later, his parents burst into laughing for they thought he was just kidding. But for Gulzar there was no looking back. Career Gulzar travelled to Japan in 1998 with a dream to become a master chef one day. He eventually hit the Five Star Ginza Tokyo Hotel, and managed to sign a study-and-work contract with the management. After the initial training, Gulzar was offered a scholarship for the next three years. There were a total of 70 people from different countries and Gulzar was the only one from Pakistan. As the course was completed there were only 12 people left and Gulzar was one of them. He completed his studies with ‘flying colors’ and got a job at the same hotel. Life couldn’t get better than that: he was leading a team of seven Japanese chefs under his wings. . . Style Gulzar is a ‘self-styled’ chef famous for his rich costumes, dramatic get-ups and signature moves. His cooking show, “Live@9 with Chef Gulzar” always opens with him performing a dance routine. Gulzar has said: “Dancing helps boost my mood and sets the right pace for the show. Some of my viewers may not like it but then again, that’s my style of doing things.” The Masala TV has brought out a best-selling cook book based on Gulzar’s show broadcast live Monday through Friday.

Personal Life Born and raised in Karachi, Gulzar is married to a professional chef from Thailand, Rubina Gulzar, and lives in Karachi with his wife and daughter. The Chef Gulzar Show is on Masala TV at 9:00 PM local time, which is why it is also known as Live@9. He has been televised for several years
