Saif Ali Khan was supposed to have two back-to-back releases this year. Kaalakaandi was supposed to arrive first, followed by Chef. Unfortunately, due to issues with the Censor Board of Film Certification, Kaalakaandi was postponed indefinitely.
Meanwhile, the trailer of ‘Chef’ is out and the film will release in the first week of October.
‘Chef’ is the Indian adaptation of Jon Favreau’s Hollywood film with the same title. It has been directed by Raja Krishna Menon, who last directed Akshay Kumar in ‘Airlift’.
The trailer has a pleasant feel to it and would’ve probably garnered an excellent response if it featured someone like Akshay Kumar, but with Saif Ali Khan going through a career-low, it remains to be seen how much interest the film can generate.
The director of the film said “It’s been an amazing journey adapting Chef. We’ve had great fun making the film. It’s truly a fun family journey and therefore we want to release the film at a time when the entire family can go out and watch it. To that end, I think we’ve found the right release window.”
Saif Ali Khan was equally excited “I’m truly excited about Chef, I’ve enjoyed every moment shooting for it. Raja has adapted the story beautifully for the Indian palate, underlining a relationship between a father and son. A film with such a universal appeal deserves the right release date. We, as a team, are doing our best.”
