#Chef is a DISASTER... Fri 1.05 cr, Sat 1.35 cr, Sun 1.60 cr. Total: ₹ 4 cr. India biz.
This Indian adaptation of Jon Favreau's 2014 Hollywood film revolves around the life of Roshan Kalra, a three-star Michelin chef at New York who gets fired after he punches a customer. He then visits Kochi to take a break where he connects with his son and ex-wife. Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Saif Ali Khan's Chef also stars Padmapriya Janakiraman, Dhanish Karthik, Dinesh Prabhakar and Chandan Roy Sanyal.
Although it received positive reviews from critics, Chef failed to connect with the audience. This is Saif Ali Khan's second release this year after Rangoon. Expectations were high from Chef after Rangoon's failure at the box office despite its stellar cast. The coming days are very crucial for the movie.
Saif Ali Khan's movie is also getting tough competition from Judwaa 2, a David Dhawan remake of the original 1997 Judwaa. Though on its second week, Judwaa 2 is still running strong at the box office and has collected Rs 116 crore till now.
