Performances by the cast members — child actor Svar Kamble, who plays Saif’s son; Padmapriya; and Milind Soman — have been appreciated. The film is being hailed as a visual treat for encapsulating a journey of exploration of Indian cities, a variety of food and different cultures.
Talking about its success, producer Bhushan Kumar says, “Chef is being appreciated by moviegoers and I’m ecstatic. It’s a family film that’ll put a smile on everyone’s face. I am sure the word of mouth will help this film further.”
Co-producer Vikram Malhotra adds, “I’m delighted with the response Chef has received. The film has been given such a wonderful shape for the Indian audiences by Raja. By trusting us with the remake, Jon Favreau had entrusted us with a huge responsibility. I’m proud that India’s Chef is endearing and evocative.”
