‘I’m thrilled Bollywood will be out of control of film mafia’, Saif Ali Khan
From the past few years, we have seen Saif Ali Khan taking up unconventional roles and nailing it perfectly on the big screen. It all started with him playing the role of Langda Tyagi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara which surprised many. No one imagined, Saif in this kind of role and he shattered the stereotype then and there. Thereafter, we saw the talented actor playing unique characters in movies namely Go Goa Gone, Bullett Raja, Kaalakaandi to name a few.
His upcoming film is Navdeep Singh’s Laal Kaptaan in which he plays the role of Naga Sandhu. The first look of the film which was unveiled a few weeks back was scary as well as intriguing. Talking about the changes Bollywood has undergone recently with smaller films making good numbers at the box office, Saif stated to HT Cafe, “To me, it’s the greatest profession in the world. Bollywood is at its creative best right now. It’s in the midst of some kind of renaissance. I don’t think there’s been a better time. And it’s only going to only grow from here. Everyone’s kids want to join [Bollywood] now, and that means the industry is going to have people with different types of looks, playing different roles. The fixed stereotypes we had in our mind are constantly being broken.
Saif added, “The film industry is really going to benefit, and there’s a lot of room for everyone. I’m thrilled it’ll be out of control of the film mafia, where people try and control things. It’s just going to be too big, and become like Hollywood.” Meanwhile, Laal Kaptaan is slated to release on September 6, 2019.
