While Saif Ali Khan is one of Bollywood’s most iconic actors right now, he did not enjoy the same success as other Khans – Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. In a new interview, Saif said the same thing and admitted that it works for him, as it not only gives him the freedom to try but also to invent his own way as an actor.
As Anupama Chopra of Film Companion claimed that Saif’s limited success was ‘really good’ for him as an actor, he totally agreed. He said that he must say that these boys – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir – were born in some way to be actors. He also said that he thinks that it should have been a childhood wish. Of course, he said he know it was for both of them and that he don’t know if it was Salman’s wish anyway but he was definitely built for it and made for the kind of success he sees. He also joined the movies at a time when you should be aiming for fame or not. And there is a point there. It could be really nuance, different types of characters … everything that has happened now.
Saif said another reason for trying different roles was that he became ‘interested in acting’ and better understood now. He urged everyone to be optimistic because there was ‘no direct way’ to grow. “For me the films have also changed. I am given complex roles and parts, and I may live on a lot of money that can support good health, ”he said.
Saif thanked Akshay Kumar for helping him make it to Bollywood. The two have worked together in films such as Yeh Dillagi, Main Khiladi Tu Anari and Tashan.
“If I was good and happy in a lot of movies and I did a lot of work with Akshay Kumar, who was probably lacking at the time, he was beautiful and fun, so we made some kind of superstar and found our way into the industry. I finished him off and he finished me off. I think that’s why we love each other so much to this day. We can see that we owe each other that, in a way, “he said, adding,” Usually, the only successful star like these guys (Khans) doesn’t need someone to finish them. “
Saif made his Bollywood debut with Parampara back in the year 1993 and has acted in films such as Dil Chahta Hai, Ek Hasina Thi, Hum Tum and Omkara. He was recently spotted in the Amazon Prime series Tandav. Her upcoming films include Bunty Aur Babli 2, Police Shoot and Adipurush.
