‘Chef’ director Raja Krishna Menon has dished out details on actor Saif Ali Khan’s new-found cooking skills. “When we started, Saif was very worried about my expectations from him in terms of being able to chop and cook like a master-chef. During the training that started with the basics and went all the way to plating Michelin star dishes, Saif began to really enjoy cooking,” Menon said in a statement.
From cutting and chopping vegetables and kneading dough to actually rustling up dishes like pastas and Rotzza’s (the main food item sold on the food truck in the film), Saif has managed to do it all. The actor trained for close to four hours everyday, over a period of a month, with Chef Himanshu and his team at Mumbai’s 5 star hotel.By the end of it, Saif was able to chop not 50 or 100 but 200 onions and garlic, everyday.
‘Chef’, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, Janani Ravichandran and Menon, is slated to release on October 6.
