While there were reports doing the rounds that Kareena Kapoor Khan might have a cameo in husband Saif Ali Khan’s aptly titled ‘Chef’.
Saif will be donning the hat of a chef. The movie is directed by ‘Airlift’ director Raja Krishna Menon.
About the rumours of Kareena’s cameo in ‘Chef’, director Raja Krishna Menon cleared that, “Kareena does not have a cameo in the movie.”
But, the royal begum was seen in a brief but pivotal role in Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Happy Ending.’
In an interview, Saif spilled the beans on the same portal about his film ‘Chef’. He revealed, "It is a father-son story. It is about a husband and wife divorce-marriage story. It is about redemption and second chances. So it is quite a deep film."
Speaking about his connection with director Menon, Saif was in all praises for him.
He stated, “Raja Menon is one of the most brilliant and dedicated filmmakers I have played with and he has generated a different take on matters. Not different but matured and sensitive take. He has made, well I hope one of the best movies that I have been a part of. I am really lucky to have acquired him as a director at this stage after he did Airlift. It is a big hit. He could have done anything after this, but the producers asked him to write this script. And when they asked him his first choice, he said Saif Ali Khan. That is a great compliment. I hope I have given him something to be proud of."
'Chef' is the remake of the 2014 American comedy of the same name which then starred Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr.
The movie is anticipated to release on July 14, and will clash with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif's 'Jagga Jasoos' and also Shraddha Kapoor's 'Haseena'.
