From the very first look of the film, it was quite obvious that Saif’s Chef is not going to work at the box office. There was nothing in the film that would have attracted moviegoers, so the writing was on the wall. The makers might have made the movie keeping multiplex audience in their mind but the storytelling was extremely poor.
As per the box office reports, the film collected only 4 crores in first three days. The daily collection of the film so far is as follows: Fri 1.05 cr, Sat 1.35 cr, Sun 1.60 cr.
#Chef is a DISASTER… Fri 1.05 cr, Sat 1.35 cr, Sun 1.60 cr. Total: ₹ 4 cr. India biz.

If the weekend collection is below par, one does not need high IQ to get the weekdays collection of this film. The movie is going to join the disastrous club of Bollywood very soon as the lifetime collection will be less than 10 crores. Saif is not a big star in India, so such movie will push him further down. He needs to work in some typical Bollywood entertainer to revive his career.
