The Chef team minus Saif celebrates the wrap with a brunch!

While Saif Ali Khan is busy hopping from one city to another for the Rangoon promotions, his Chef team recently celebrated the wrap of its domestic schedule with a brunch. And though the 46-year-old actor couldn’t be party to it, leading lady, Padmapriya, especially flew down to relish the treat.

Speaking about it to a leading daily director Raja Krishna Menon said, “Technically it’s not a wrap yet as we still have a final schedule in New York left, but some of the technicians, including the lightmen and the spot boys, who are as important to me as the HoDs, won’t be coming with us to the Big Apple. So we decided to party with them now since 95 percent of the film is complete. It’s been a crazy ride — we’ve travelled all over the country, cooked and eaten all kinds of food, and brought out the best in each other.”

And because the bash was a bit hatke, it served Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtrian’s cuisine.

Interestingly, the pic was also shared by Jon Favreau the original producer and actor in the film on his Twitter.

Meanwhile, Saif who plays the protagonist in the film, in an exclusive interview opened up on its storyline and revealed, “It is a father-son story, it is about a husband and wife divorce-marriage story. It is about redemption and second chances. So it is quite a deep film.”

All praises for the filmmaker the actor added, “Raja Menon is one of the brightest and dedicated filmmakers I have worked with and he has got a different take to things. Not different but matured and sensitive take. He has made, well I hope one of the best films that I have been a part of. I am very lucky to have got him as a director at this stage after he did Airlift. It is a big hit. He could have done anything after this but the producers asked him to write this script. And when they asked him his first choice, he said Saif Ali Khan. That is a great compliment. I hope I have given him something to be proud of.”
Co-produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Vikram Malhotra, the flick is slated for July 14 release.
