It’s all good news for Saif Ali Khan starrer film Chef, which hit the cinema halls today. Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the film is a bittersweet account of a Michel-star Chef and his estranged son. Besides Saif, the film’s actress Padmapriya Janakiraman is also receiving heaps of appreciation for her excellent performance. She plays a Bharatanatyam teacher in the film where she was seen wearing her favourite dance dress designed by her mother.

“It is my favourite dance dress. It is golden in colour, sourced and designed by my mother for one of my big dance performances on stage in the past. We have used it in a song called ‘Darmiyaan’ and a scene for the movie,” Padmapriya said in a statement.
If she gave a personal touch to the film, Saif discovered his inner chef through it.
“Cooking has now become a part of who he is today. Saif discovered his inner chef through this film. I was quite content to see his transformation from someone who has never cooked to that of a professional chef,” the film’s director Raja Krishna Menon had said earlier.
The Hindi remake of Hollywood film Chef released on Friday. Saif Ali Khan’s last film Rangoon couldn’t do wonders at the box office. Thus, expectations are high from Chef. The movie will be fighting the box office battle with Varun Dhawan starrer Judwaa 2
