If you were
waiting to see Saif Ali Khan to do what he does best, i.e. play real and
off-beat characters- then his forthcoming release, Chef might just present your
favourite star in the same light.
Team Chef released the trailer of the film today at a media event and we can’t stop gushing over the adorable dad, played by Saif.
Directed by Raja Krishna Menon and produced by Bhushan Kumar, the film is based on the 2014 Hollywood hit by the same name, which not only starred Jon Favreau in the lead role but was also directed by him. Scarlett Johansson and Sofia Vergara were also a part of the film.
And now, coming to our desi version of Chef, apart from Nawab Pataudi the film stars child artiste Svar Kamble, who plays Saif’s son, Padmapriya (who plays Saif’s wife) and Chandan Roy Sanyal. Svar, who hails from Mumbai has earlier worked in 2016 Bollywood film, Chidiya.
Talking about Chef, well, it is a unique tale of Roshan Kalra (played by Saif Ali Khan), a chef by profession, who sets out on a journey to figure out his true priorities and source of happiness. It's a story of a father's rediscovery of the bond with his son.
While a few scenes in the trailer between Saif and Svar are absolutely spectacular, the chemistry between Saif and Kannad/Telugu actress Padampriya is also pleasant.
The film's principal photography began in October 2016 in Kochi and has also been shot in the busy locations of Delhi like Chandani Chowk. It was scheduled for a worldwide release on July 14 2017, however, it was then postponed to October 6 2017, to avoid conflict with Jagga Jasoos.
