The forthcoming Saif Ali Khan starrer ‘Chef’ will have a couple of heroines as required by the story. With Padmapriya playing Ali Khan’s ex-wife, it’s emerged that Sobhita Dhulipalia will also be a love interest.

“Sobhita is expected to join the team by December. She recently had a meeting with Raja who is convinced she fits the role perfectly. She starts off as a friend of Saif’s character but later they fall for each other. The film is being shot all over India, from Kerala to Goa, followed by Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and Delhi, and Sobhita is most likely to join the Delhi schedule,” said a source, according to Mumbai Mirror.

Director Raja Krishna Menon confirmed the news, “Her character is loosely based on Scarlett Johansson’s role in the original but it’s a much more evolved character and a much longer role as compared to that. Sobhita, besides being extraordinarily attractive, is a natural when it comes to acting. I wouldn’t go so far as calling it a love angle between Saif and her, but there are insinuations of what could have been between them. However, I wouldn’t want to reveal which part of the journey she joins him at”.

The film tells the story of a man who starts his own food business and travels up and down the country with it.
