Saif Ali Khan recently revealed that he decided to be a part of "Chef" just to understand the urban problem of dealing with family, divorce and child.

"'Chef' is a mix -- both art and commercial. I agree that the entertainment industry needs to feature newer stories and fresher content. I think 'Chef' is a step in the right direction. Some of the smaller films have been more exciting because they seemed fresher somehow. I am excited about (finding out) what response this film gets," he said.

Asked whether parents today are more supportive of their children's dreams, Saif, a father of three, said: "It's difficult. People say that they want to do this or do that, but (as a parent) you would prefer them to be safer. In 'Chef', my father wants me to be a doctor or an engineer. He gets really upset when I say that I want to become a chef.

"All parents want security for their children. There are many more career options nowadays. We say this is a post-'3 Idiots' film where you get to follow your heart."

Saif, who is married to actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, believes that parents accord more respect to their children's aspirations now.

"Earlier, parents used to decide a lot of things for you. In my family, we always listen to our children -- Sara wants to join films; that's fine as that's something she has always wanted to do. I am happy with what my children want to be," said the actor, who has daughter Sara and son Ibrahim with former wife Amrita Singh and nine-month-old Taimur Ali Khan with Kareena Kapoor.

Best known for his roles in films like "Main Khiladi Tu Anari", "Hum Saath-Saath Hain", "Hum Tum", "Salaam Namaste", "Omkara" and "Love Aaj Kal", most of which have been multi-starrers, Saif is now more inclined towards working in "solo-hero" movies.

"I prefer working in solo-hero projects because there you can be more relaxed and work at your own pace. But I am happy to do a two-hero film -- if the role is good. I have had a wonderful timing with Shah Rukh. I really enjoyed 'Kal Ho Naa Ho'.

"It was very nice to see Akshay on his show ('The Great Indian Laughter Challenge'). He is a really nice and fun person to work with," Saif said.

On the work front, besides "Chef", Saif will also be seen in "Kaalakaandi" and web series "Sacred Games".
