Tamil film takes inspiration from blind MasterChef winner
Tamil actor Kalaiyarasan is going to play the role of a blind chef in his upcoming film.
Rohin Venkatesan, the film’s director wanted to show Kalai as a self-supporting businessman with a disability.
Kalai’s character as a blind chef is inspired from a MasterChef US winner Christine Ha.
Rohin and his team watched videos of Christine Ha to understand how a visually impaired chef works in the kitchen.
They later showed the videos to Kalai who learned the ways of holding things, cutting vegetables, among others to work as a blind chef in the film.
