Director Raja Krishna Menon is set to serve a blend of food, emotions and travel in Chef

“All we did was eat and in between, we shot a film,” laughs Raja Krishna Menon, over the telephone. The director who is still soaring high with the success of the Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift, is all set to serve up Chef, a movie that has Saif Ali Khan in the lead.

Coming back home, they wanted to do all that the chef did in the movie, buy a food truck and everything. Listening to them talk, Raja’s son came and said, “You guys are talking like little kids who watched a superhero movie.” So three years later, when producer Vikram Malhotra asked if Raja would be interested to direct the Hindi adaptation of the film, he said yes and put Saif Ali Khan as his chef. After that he was not sure how he could adapt it. He had only worked on original screenplays before. And this was an official remake, the producers had got the rights.
