By the time Saif Ali Khan finishes shooting for Raja Krishna Menon’s Chef, he will be a master cuisine creator.
Saif Ali Khan is being trained for the part by two of the most accomplished chefs of Mumbai.
Shedding light on Saif’s rigorous training in the culinary arts, director Raja Krishna Menon says, “Basically, Saif was training for Indian cooking earlier. And, now, he’s training for more international cuisine, since that’s what we have left to shoot.”
Two chefs were chosen to tutor Saif Ali Khan. Says Menon, “He was trained by two professional chefs. Earlier, it was Chef Himanshu and now it’s Chef Ranjit Thomas. Both are from the JW Marriott. Saif Ali Khan can make a pretty decent meal now!”
Apparently, Saif Ali Khan has become quite a cook at home too. He has taken over wife Kareena’s kitchen and cooks up yummy meals for the family.
“Saif Ali Khan has become very fond of cooking after working in Chef. He invites friends and family over for dinner and whips up yummy meals. This is one skill worth learning for a role. It’s a gastronomical delight meant to last forever.”
