In a recent interaction with News18 Showsha, during the promotion of her upcoming film, Do Aur Do Pyaar, Vidya Balan revealed a special anecdote from her marital life. The diva talked about celebrating her first wedding anniversary with hubby, Siddharth Roy Kapur, for which she tested one of her skills that she was never adept with. Vidya mentioned that she was never good at cooking, and it was on her wedding anniversary that she attempted to bake a cake for her better-half. Revealing how her hubby sweetly praised the cake, even though it was barely cooked, Vidya said:

“I don’t cook at all. But on our first anniversary, I had actually baked a cake for him. I was shooting elsewhere, and I went into the kitchen of that hotel and the chef helped me a lot. Once Siddharth had it, he told me, ‘It’s so good!’ It was so sweet of him. And then when I tasted it, I realized it wasn’t good at all! It was so lumpy. I didn’t tell him that the chef helped me make it, but now I guess he’ll know.”
