After a long hiatus, Saif Ali Khan will finally be seen shining on the silver screen. His ‘chef’ avatar was loved by everyone back in ‘Salaam Namaste’, remember? The Pataudi royal is ready to impress the audience with the official remake of ‘Chef’. He’s of course, playing the titular role. The movie tells the story of a fancy chef who is desperately trying to strike a balance between his professional and personal life.

Saif is essaying the role of Roshan Kalra , a celebrity chef whose professional commitments have taken a toll on his personal life. Padmapriya is playing the role of his wife, Radha, who is constantly asking him to spend time with his son. The trailer shows the fun food trail that the father-son duo take in order to spend more time with each other.

Eventually he quits his job and opens his own food truck to be closer to home, and above all, to be there for his son.
The movie was initially scheduled to be released in July but has been shifted to be released on October 6th. Saif was last seen in ‘Rangoon’ opposite Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor. The original ‘Chef’ has John Favreau play the lead role and the movie is in fact also written by him. The movie was a hit and struck a chord with the audience. Saif definitely looks promising as a confused father.
