Saif Ali Khan has reportedly taken a paternity leave until January 2017. Due to his hectic work schedule, however, the actor will be flying to Europe next month with his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and baby Taimur, to shoot for his new film, Chef.

According reports, a source confirmed that Saif is determined not to leave his family behind, “He wants to ensure that they are all together at least the first few months,” he said. Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Chef, which is a remake of Jon Favreau’s Hollywood film of the same name, has been shot in Kerala, Goa and Amritsar so far and the team will be shooting the last schedule in Europe. Only 20 per cent of the film’s shoot is pending. The film is slated to hit the theatres on July 14, 2017.
