Saif Ali Khan who is currently gearing up for his upcoming film ‘Chef’, has shared that he hopes that the Raja Krishna Menon directorial is a hit.
Reported in the Mid-day, Khan who has not had many box office hits since ‘Race 2’ (2013) is hoping to cook up a storm in the cinemas with ‘Chef’, which will bring him back to the forefront. “It is important that Chef performs well, else I will have to question what is going wrong [with my career]. It affects my image of being a star, because, a star is supposed to be bankable. Yet, it doesn’t affect my confidence.”
Other than ‘Chef’, Khan has lined up few other projects such as Akshat Verma’s ‘Kaalakandi’ and Nikkhil Advani’s ‘Bazaar’ and feels confident that these too will be successful. The ‘Rangoon’ (2017) actor is also starring in India’s first Netflix series the ‘Sacred Games’. “[Despite the debacles of my past films], I still have three films and a Netflix series in my kitty. I have been the first choice for all these projects. So, I am sure I have done something right.”
Khan also shares how he is more aware of the types of scripts that would be beneficial for him, thus performing better. “I am doing better work, working with better directors than I have.”
‘Chef’ a remake of the Hollywood hit film by Jon Favreau, is slated to release in cinemas on the 6th October.
