Saif Ali Khan who was recently seen in horror-comedy, Bhoot Police, in conversation with Pinkvilla shared his desire to be more commercial in his approach. Gearing up to shoot his next Vikram Vedha where he would lock horns with Hrithik Roshan on screen, he gives out details about his role on screen. Saif who plays a no-nonsense cop in Vikram Vedha, will be seen tackling Hrithik to be seen in a gangster role. During his conversation, he explained the difference between his cop avatar in Sacred Games and this flick.
He said, “I would say, Sartaj Singh was kind of a victim, who would be slapped around by almost everybody. His rise was from a slightly suicidal space to something else. He was a troubled and honest guy.” While speaking about his cop’s role in Vikram Vedha, he said, “Vikram on the other hand is a very tough, successful and intelligent IPS kind of an officer. He is much more dynamic, confident and strong.”
Backed by Reliance and T Series, the movie will go on floors in October in UAE, the actor will be most likely joining the team in November 2021. The actor after trying his hands in non-commercial cinema, has some big-ticket movies in making. All set to be seen in Vikram Vedha, Adipurush and Fire, he said, “I have always loved acting, but at the same time, was pressured by it. I would be scared of failures and of how I will manage it. I enjoyed those films, but did it under a lot of stress. Kalakandi was fun, but on doing Chef, I felt that Raja Menon took it into a very different direction. It could have been much more commercial.”
The actor realized while he worked with people from the non-commercial arena, that he can direct himself to more commercial content. Saif adds, “Some people can’t be commercial and some don’t want to be. But I thought I could be commercial and wanted to be so. I wanted to maximize things - like Tanhaji, Adipurush, Vikram Vedha, Bhoot Police are all commercial cinema. I want to do them now. I don’t want to do the other kind of films right now.” ALSO READ: Saif Ali Khan Reunites With Excel Entertainment After 20 Years Of Dil Chahta Hai To Play A Firefighter
