Actor Saif Ali Khan, who is currently awaiting the release of his upcoming film Chef, says it is important that the film performs well at the box office, reports mid-day. The 47-year-old actor told mid-day: "Else, I will have to question what is going wrong with my career. It affects my image of being a star, because a star is supposed to be bankable. Yet, it doesn't affect my confidence." Saif Ali Khan, who is currently shooting for India's first Netflix original titled Sacred Games, also says box office success is a validation of an actor's credibility, reports mid-day.

Saif Ali Khan hasn't been particularly favoured by the box office for the last few years except his 2013 film Race 2, which received a great response and became a hit. His films like Happy Ending, Humshakals and Bullett Raja did not fare quite well at the big screen including his last film Rangoon,which also featured Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor. The Vishal Bhardwaj-directed film was reportedly made on a budget of Rs 80 crore, which was never fully recovered.

Despite the box office debacles, Saif Ali Khan is excited about the roles coming his way, which reveal a different story. "I still have three films and a Netflix series in my kitty. I have been the first choice for all these projects. So, I am sure I have done something right," mid-day quoted Saif Ali Khan as saying.

Addressing himself as a "late bloomer," Saif says he has recently only begun understanding which script would develop into a notable outing, reports mid-day.

Saif is currently also working on films like Akshat Verma's Kaalakaandiand Nikkhil Advani's Bazaar. Of these films and the directors, Saif told mid-day: "I am doing better work, working with better directors than I have."

Chef is directed by Raja Krishna Menon and marks Saif's second film this year.

The film is scheduled to release on October 6.
