Saif Ali Khan and the snowstorm in the Big Apple

Saif Ali Khan wrapped up the final schedule of Raja Krishna Menon’s gastronomical comedy, Chef, last week in New York before leaving for London for a vacation with actress-wife Kareena Kapoor. A source associated with the film, which is produced by Vikram Malhotra and Bhushan Kumar, reveals that the team shot the film’s opening scenes, which showcase his character’s life as a professional chef, in the week-long New York schedule.

Saif’s chef later leaves his life in the Big Apple behind to start a food truck in India. We shot in a restaurant, a diner, a bar and on the streets of Manhattan in sub-zero temperatures. Though it was miserably cold, the weather worked in the film’s favour as the script demanded snowfall. In the original Hollywood film, Chef Carl Casper (played by filmmaker-actor Jon Favreau), starts a food truck after losing his restaurant job following a showdown with a formidable food critic and a disagreement with the restaurant’s owner. Raja told Mirror, “We have portrayed a unique side of New York, shot in places where our films rarely go to.

We were hit by a snowstorm and the temperature dipped to below zero. It was really sporting of Saif and my crew to shoot in such extreme conditions so that we could use it to our advantage and create the exact mood I had envisaged for this section of the film.”

The shoot of the Raja Menon-directed gastronomical comedy-drama, Chef, just wrapped up after a schedule in New York and Chandan Roy Sanyal who plays a Sous chef in it asserts that Saif Ali Khan is the best star he has worked with. “He’s an intelligent, suave, cultured, wellread humorist with a passion for life… A child at heart,” the actor, who grew up watching his films like Main Khiladi Tu Anari, says. He recalls, when Saif invited him home, Chandan gifted him two books, both Hindi translations of Badal Sircar and Jean-Paul Sartre’s plays.

Saif was intrigued when he found that the books were not in English, a language he’s more familiar with, till Chandan pointed out that Saif had books in English on every topic in his personal library. “I told him a book on Hindi plays would be an embellishment and Saif promised to read them, slowly but surely,” says Chandan, who will be seen as a sex-starved virginal buffoon in the upcoming Mirza Juliet.

Saif Ali Khan, the handsome hunk who was recently in the news for naming his son as Taimur, has been confirmed to play the lead in upcoming biggie Baazaar from filmmaker Nikkhil Advani. Nimrat Kaur, the actress who mesmerized the audience with her performance in Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift plays the female lead in the film. Another actress Fatima Sana Shaikh of Aamir Khan’s Dangal fame will also be playing the parallel lead in the film opposite Rohan Mehra (Vinod Mehra’s son).

As a source told a leading daily in this regard:

“The casting is done. Saif plays the older hero while Rohan plays the younger parallel lead. Arjun Kapoor was approached for it, but he didn’t have the dates they wanted to shoot for.”

“Nimrat Kaur has been offered the main leading lady’s part opposite Saif where she will play his love interest. There will be another young, fresh romantic angle with Rohan Mehra’s character. For that, Nikkhil has cast Dangal girl Fatima Sana Shaikh. Nikkhil has loved her in Dangal and feels she will be brilliant in this thriller too.”
