Just when we were getting to hear awesome stories of this movie, we now have the first poster of it out already! It shows a wonderful quirky bond between Saif and Svar, who play father-son in the film. By the looks of the poster, it already seems like a light-hearted fun movie.

We wanted the film to release in a period where families can step out to enjoy this epic film with each other.”
Abundantia shared the quirky poster on Twitter and wrote, “Presenting the first look of @ChefFilmIndia – A story of food, love, family and togetherness. #ChefTrailer out at 2pm today! #SaifAliKhan”
