On the next day i.e. Thursday with further drop, Chef added the amount of 0.35 crore to it’s account and raised it’s one week total collection to 5.60 crores at domestic box office. Now there is no big film is being released this week but still Saif Ali Khan starrer doesn’t seem to show any improvement.
