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.”

Looks small cute film. Hope budget is under control. Visuals are breathtaking. Whether this is big screen experience or not, difficult to decide at this stage!
tomorrow is baadshaaw relse ..all ajay fans plz go and watch the movie
superb entertaining trailer
now salman khan will star in chef 2 where he will cook blackbucks after crashing people on footpath in race 3
Get some life jabra fan, there r many good doctors in India
after race 3’s announcement of Salman Khan, SRK fans are burning like fire of Hell… coz they know with that film Salman will further distance himself up from SRK… and bechara SRK will be left way behind Salman… Currently TZH is A very big Nightmare for SRK fans and now Race 3 will force them to cry even more… hahahah
Why would we be worried about non actor starring in race 3 when race itself is becoming a flop franchise after the debacle of 2nd part which was not even a clean hit? People won’t accept him in back to back action films and these days no one is bigger than content. This is no longer a 2010-2016 period. Time has changed and people are only waiting for movies with content over actor. Tubeight and JHMs proved it. TZH and race 3 will prove it again. Can’t say the same about TOH though. So stay in your limit and next time think 100 times before saying anything rubbish.
@Truth… JHMS and Tubelight wasn’t massy and Tubelight was a niche… actions and massy elements would’ve made it Another 300 crs like Sultan and BB but TZH is different, it’ll have everything which a hit feel needs…
On ur question of “Why would we be worried about race 3”
Ask Zebra (Jabra)… his comments are showing that he is too worried. He is writing anything he wants in frustration, and these things showing that u srk fans are too worried….. Such comments can speak and that’s speaking that u are burning like a hell upon race 3’s announcement. If ain’t burning, why the hell commenting like this ?!
Really want Saif to get back his LAK and Race days. He’s an underrated actor and has a good presence. This looks promising. Hope the audience gives it a chance by turning up.
its going to be another superhit of the year
The trailer has a pleasant feel to it and would’ve probably garnered an excellent response if it featured someone like Akshay Kumar…
Trailer Is Good …
Saif Highest Grossing Movie Is Humshakals – 86 Cr ..
Could Challenge It ..
Coz It Would Be Funny To Say – His Highest Collection Is A Flop …
He Did Some Good Movies in Late 2000’s But Lost After That – Cocktail Was Good- Made 75 Only…
Hope This Touches 90Cr And Kisses 100 Cr.
He did cross 100 cr with Race 2 :)
Hahaha! Who r u? I havn’t seen such a fool person here before! Hamshakals earned about 62 Cr while Saif’s highest grosser is Race 2!! So has already crossed 100 Cr!
Note:- A Saif Ali Khan Hater ?
IF THIS MOVIE IS IN CONTROLLED BUDGET OF 30 CRS..
IT HAS A CHANCE OF GETTING A HIT TAG..
SEEMS TO BE MAX 70-75CRS MOVIE..WOTH POSTIVE WOM
Delicious food served by CHEF
Shown the whole movie step by step in the trailer ….. nothing left to go to ….
I hope it’s a success. Saif deserves one.
Saif being the lead here, even with an excellent trending and great WoM, the movie can at max do 50-60 crores…This is the maximum potential of a Saif starrer today….chances are high that it will wrap below 50 crores…
I am sure the movie will be good though but it is star driven industry after all and Saif is no longer a bankable lead actor
this is my first comment here :-)
That u r fool
Means he is all set to deliver two flops this year..
I hope atleast it emerges hit status..saif deserves it
I hope atleast it emerges hit status..saif deserves it
It looks like High end Multiplex movie……Trailer reveal the entire story, its a simple story which revolve around the father son relationship……The only thing which I don’t like is that it looks very boring kind of movie….lack of entertainment value may cause the downfall…..But still hope for the best….
Best Of Luck Saif and Chef Team……
I guarantee this one will be a must watch movie..
People are predicting 70, 80, 90cr for this, but honestly it looks difficult, in best case scenario it can collect 50cr……for 70cr it need Extraordinary WOM….But again hope for the best….
Looking forward to it
Off Topic Comment:
According to Forbes India Srk, Salman and Akki are the top paid actors in India in respective order….But interesting thing is Salman is the highest Tax paid actor, and Akki is the 2nd highest Tax paid actor, while our so called top paid actor Srk is not even in the top 10 list……that’s why people call him Tax Chor……Now we all know how he become the 2nd richest star in the world….Tax Chor Srk……
It’s a lovely trailer..
Will surely watch it..
Trailer looks good..
Its super trailer with love of father & son.
Tax chor is far better from being a deshdrohi like gangu teli Salman.
Pleasantly surprised by the trailer 8 thought it will be crap but after I watched it i wish it will be Hit movie trailer is looking fantastic Saif Ali Khan is awesome I love some of his movies Hum Tum, Cocktail, Tara Rum Pum & Race series
