Chef has collected around 1.05 crores on the opening day as per the official figures. This is a very poor number and much lower than expectations.
The expectations were never high but Chef has even failed to live up to them. It has collected lower than smaller films like Daddy and Haseena Parkar. Chef will now need to have a massive turnaround over the weekend. This seems almost impossible as the film had only limited audience and word of mouth is not that great.
