There has been a constant trait that Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan has cultivated in his cinematic persona, it being characterized by his conscious or sub-conscious attempt to project himself as a person who presents a western demeanor (except for few flicks like OMKARA and BULLET RAJA). Believe it or not, but many of the roles that Saif did, catered to the English diaspora (HAPPY ENDING, LOVE AAJ KAL, PHANTOM, AGENT VINOD, SALAAM NAMASTE and many more).
And now yet again, the charming actor will play an urban guy in the Hindi remake of Hollywood hit film CHEF.
Abundantia Entertainment, Eros International and Alumbra Entertainment have joined hands and announced that they would produce the Hindi adaptation of CHEF that was written, produced and directed by IRON MAN and JUNGLE BOOK director Jon Favreau. Jon Favreau also featured in the titular role essaying Chef Casper in the original film. For Hindi film, Saif will step in the shoes of Jon Favreau and play the iconic role.
