Vikas Khanna, Garima Arora, and Ranveer Brar, the judges on MasterChef India, are under fire from netizens for allegedly favouring one candidate over another named Aruna Vijay.

Despite her best efforts to include a variety of cuisines and her refusal to refuse duties because of her food preferences, one home cook, Priya, was dismissed. Aruna is accused of receiving favouritism regularly, even though she is seen to have declined duties because they didn’t suit her preferences.

On a special episode for the family, Aruna made an appam stew that featured miniature appams, stew foam, baked veggies, and chammanthi thoran, with coconut serving as the primary ingredient. Although she received accolades from the MasterChef judges, fans were disappointed and criticised the judges for favouring Aruna, describing her dish as “simple looking” compared to others.

Aruna was allowed to use Paneer instead of fish, causing controversy among netizens who believe they shouldn’t be on the show if someone has a problem with non-vegetarian dishes. They criticised her for using her immunity pin to avoid using an egg in her recipe and said it set a poor example for the other contestants.

Social media users criticised judge Ranveer Brar for his “hypocrisy” in a recent show after he was accused of treating contestant Aruna unjustly and not being as harsh on her as he was on the other competitors. Also, internet users brought up Garima’s response to Aruna’s dish and criticised the judges for their biased demeanour.


Making filter coffee shrikhand was Aruna’s audacious innovation endeavour, which failed horribly. The MasterChef judges, though, came under fire for not being as tough with Aruna as they had been with Priyanka, another contestant who had already been dismissed.

In the meantime, the six are Kamaldeep Kaur, Aruna Vijay, Nayanjyoti Saikia, Santa Sarmah, Suvarna Bagul, and Gurkirat Singh, finalists of Masterchef India 2023. Sachin Khatwani, a home cook from Lucknow, is currently out of the running. The programme airs on Sony Entertainment Television and SonyLIV on weeknights at 9 p.m.
